Allow multiple Creator, CreationDate, Editor and EditDate fields in ArcGIS Online (and the new Collector)

In the past, when making a Web Map from ArcGIS Pro (or ArcMap) sometimes additional Editor Tracking fields are automatic created. Other times, you might have already have these fields from old data and want to re-publish these to a new map. You'd end up with Creator and Creator_1, where one of both would be the active editor-tracking field.

In recent times this causes strange problems where the new Collector App will say: "The field already exists."

and then fail to load the layers where this occurs.


Is there any way to get this working in the new Collector (and Field Maps) as it worked (and still does) in the Collector Classic app?
