Fields should be in attribute-table order instead of alphabetical order when a Smart Form is not created

After publishing a hosted feature layer and creating a Smart Form for one of the feature classes in that layer, any feature classes without Smart Forms are impacted. The impact is that when collecting a feature in the Field Maps mobile app, the fields are presented in alphabetical order. It's preferable to present these in attribute-table order instead, as alphabetical is almost never the desired order.

Hi,

I changed the field names before the layer was published, putting the numbers in front of the numbers (table=>fields properties=> alias => example: 1_Type; 2_Statuss; 3_Descrip)

Hi- Not sure if you found this already: https://community.esri.com/t5/arcgis-field-maps-questions/attribute-fields-change-order-in-offline-m...

But if you organize the fields in the desired order on the form configuration, it appears in the correct order on field maps.
