Calculate geometry in AGOL to find the area or length of a polygon or line

    It would be nice to have some sort of calculate geometry option or have an area field auto populate in AGOL, Collector, and Web App Builder. Even being able to select an existing polygon, hit the current measure tool, and have it return the area value would be a huge improvement.

     

    Currently, we have to draw a polygon or line and then use the measure tool to basically redraw the same polygon or line and hope that it's close to the same shape. This has proven to be inaccurate, time consuming, and very difficult for our field staff.
