Add attribute automatically based on web map

We are a project consultancy, so do similar work but for multiple projects and clients.   I can see some advantages recording the data in a single feature service for multiple projects on AGOL in collector, but wonder if it would be possible to create separate maps linking to the same feature service that would be able to automatically fill in a project field with the correct project ID that is set in a map (by the administrator not the editor)?

Does this make sense?  Also if you know of better ways of this type of workflow let me know?

Hello Joseph Nunn‌,

It is possible to create multiple web maps in ArcGIS Online that reference the same service. In regards to pre-populating fields in the feature service you could use custom URL schemes to pass parameters from other apps or web maps. I've provided some example documentation below.

ArcGIS Blog - Understanding Survey 123's custom URL scheme

Hope this helps!
