It is currently very easy to add a sketch layer to Webmaps in ArcGIS Online. It would be amazing if we could have the same functionality so that users in the field can add sketches and notes on top the map they are capturing data against in Field Maps.
Quite often they notice things that they would like to annotate which doesn't fall in the remit of the of map or form they are using, and they currently either:
1) record that information in a free text field that it doesn't belong in...or
2) take a screenshot of the map and annotate it in a different app, which then requires us to georeference that image to utilise what they've done.
If Field Maps is ever to fully replace paper maps in the field, then having the ability to sketch/write additional information on the map face, outside of the remit of a form (that was designed before they got to the field) is essential.
