Can a layer be automatically "snapped" to another layer while being collected?

We'll be collecting polyline data in arcgis online (collector or quick capture) as we move along streets and sidewalks in the field and would like to snap it to the existing street/sidewalk polyline features so it has a clean look.

The idea is to create a web map that shows where this polyline data was collected with a clean look (not varying paths based on gps accuracy/reliability) and without much manual post-collection processing.

The alternate method to consider is something where the attribute of the street/sidewalk feature class is updated if data is collected near it, parallel to it, etc. (no clue how this would work).

Any ideas out there? Thanks!

Collector doesn't support snapping yet -- it is in our development roadmap: What's planned for Collector?—Collector for ArcGIS | ArcGIS

Will Quick Capture have similar abilities as Collector?

Hi Kylie Donia‌ & Alex Metzler

 The ArcGIS QuickCapture‌ mobile app is not able to snap collected data to existing features either. You may want to look at performing this task with ArcGIS Pro‌ as a post-process. The Conflation toolset is not originally designed to do what you describe but I can see certain similarities. It is possible that using conflation tools in a creative way may help you.
