Can I turn off points/lines automatically moving to my GPS location when I edit them?

Hi,

I have multiple data collectors in the field that routinely need to update attribute information in a point layer, and sometimes when they edit the point it automatically moves the point to the GPS location of their device. These points are placed intentionally in the office and should not move in the field, but we do sometimes need to make office edits so disabling the ability to edit geometry in the ArcGIS Online layer settings also isn't a convenient option.

Likewise, sometimes when a data collector edits a line segment, it automatically adds a vertex to the line where their GPS location is.

Is there a way to turn off automatic location updates in Collector without having to disable geometry editing for all users?

Thanks

Currently Collector app is optimized for field worker use. For your scenario, you can consider disable location service while doing office editing.
