Get value from the snapping feature (Collector or Field Maps)

    Regarding the planned feature snapping functionality in Collector and Field Maps (Android):

     

    Would it be possible for ESRI to enhance the functionality, in either Collector or Field Maps (Android), so that it can grab a field value from the snapping feature?
     
    In other words:
    In addition to getting the geometry from the snapping feature, what if a field value were also taken from the snapping feature and inserted into a field in the current/new feature? Could that be done?
     
    If that were possible, I think it would effectively solve the classic parent-child problem that users often face when collecting GIS data. As far as I know, the only other way to enter a parent feature's ID into a new child feature is to type in the ID manually. Which is time-consuming and error-prone.

     

    Cheers.
