Modify fields after a hosted feature service is created.

Idea created by MBullock-esristaff Employee on Jan 2, 2014
    It would be really helpful to be able to modify/add fields to a hosted feature service once it has been created in ArcGIS Online. The website provides the functionality to create a feature service with user defined fields, but once the hosted feature service is created you can't modify the fields in the service within the ArcGIS Online SaaS environment. This would remove the extra step needed to bring the hosted feature service into ArcGIS for Desktop, make the edits, and republish the service.
