Built in PQ function to add items at the end of the list?

Is there any PQ built in functionality that adds an item to the end of the list?

To elaborate, my initial list is following = {{1,2,3},{"A","B","C"}}

I want to add {1} at the end of the above list, I can currently do that by

 

let
    Source = {{1,2,3},{"A","B","C"}},
    Custom1 = List.InsertRange(Source,List.Count(Source),{1})
in
    Custom1

 

But, I want to avoid writing Custom1 if there is a built-in functionality, something like following 

 

let
    Source = {{1,2,3},{"A","B","C"}},
    Custom1 = List.addAtTheEnd(Source,{1})
in
    Custom1

 

where the function figures out where to add the item by iteslf on the funtion call itself rather then me pointing it at the index position in 

List.InsertRange(<list>, <index>, <values>)

Hi @smpa01 

 

I don't see a built-in one, but you can write one custom function like this

let
    Source = {{1,2,3},{"A","B","C"}},
    fxListaddAtTheEnd = (SourceList,newValue)=>List.InsertRange(SourceList,List.Count(SourceList),newValue),
    Custom1 = fxListaddAtTheEnd(Source,{1})
in
    Custom1
