In QGIS 3.2, the split vector layer tool has the option to output to a temporary folder. But the user has to search through the temporary files on their computer to find the output from this tool. On my computer, I eventually found the output in a folder called C:\Users\...\AppData\Local\Temp\processing_06d3ebcccd43405387054798e6b8efb9\b215e3c7f0e6409c873c9b7f1d6507bc\OUTPUT. It's not a huge bug, but it gives the impression that this tool simply doesn't work.

This issue would be fixed by adding an option to automatically add the output to the current project.

This is not bug. By default all outputs saved in the temporary directories/files. But you can easily set any destination path using "Browse" button at the right side of the parameter widget.

Also for such specific tasks you can create a post-processing script which will be executed automatically after algorithm completion.
