Our field staff would like to see a capability in field maps to create a point using a set of known, existing coordinates, in addition to the current methods for point creation within the app. I provided a workaround of using Pro to edit the feature service and create the point with coordinates that way, but they really need a way to do this offline and in the field. Thanks!


While this is still a workaround, it might be better than having to use Pro.

You can use Search to enter coordinates. That will drop a pin on the map. Then you can tap on the pin to see the details. There's an option there called Collect Here which will let you create a point feature at that location.


Thank you, that is most helpful!
