Automatic Polygon Area Calculation from a Track Line in ArcGIS Field Maps

I am using the ArcGIS Field Maps application to record track lines or paths of machines in the field. I would like to know if there is any way to automatically convert these track lines into polygons and calculate their area directly within the application using the Arcade scripting language.

The goal is to be able to calculate the surface area traversed by the machine in real time as the track is being recorded. I understand that Arcade can calculate areas and lengths, but I am unsure of how I could close off the track line to form a polygon.

I am open to suggestions, and any guidance on how I might approach this problem would be greatly appreciated. If there is a function or tool in Arcade, in Field Maps, or elsewhere in the ArcGIS suite that could help me achieve this goal, I would like to know about it.

Thank you in advance for your time and assistance.

Best regards,
