Enable/disable Feature Snapping for specific layers

Hi everyone,

Our field crews use multiple reference-only layers in Field Maps and other layers that they collect data with. They find it useful to have feature snapping on, but only want to snap to the features they have created (not to the reference layers). 

It would be preferable if there was a way to disable and enable snapping to specific layers within a web map in Field Maps.




This has recently become an essential requirement for our workflow. Please implement


I remember ArcMap's "Classic Snapping" toolset allowed you to remove layers from the snapping pool.

It means you could prevent field workers from snapping to hideously complex vector layers in their field map base data, whilst also being able to snap to other layers that are part of their snapping workflow.

An example of this would be using an EOS Arrow and Trupulse laser rangefinder to survey point vertices of a shape (eg kerbline) and then collect that edge with a polyline kerbline feature template by snapping to those points.

Please implement 👍
