Use existing ArcGIS Online symbology and popups with new data from a layer or map package

    Often one makes many ArcGIS Online maps with slightly different data that has the same field names and data types. It can be tedious to have to recreate the same popups and symbology for each map.

    Perhaps this is done by selecting an existing web map layer and pointing it at a layer package. It the schema is the same you could use the layer package as the data source. If you point the entire web map at a map package all the layers would use the map package as their data source. 

    Another way is to edit the data source of the layer somehow like you do in ArcMap.
