I've seen a couple videos on youtube that indicate it's not possible. I've used AGOL to edit ine and polygon geometry, primarily in collector. However, I've never tried to move a point's location in AGOL. After uploaded a point file into a Group project in AGOL I noticed a few points were slightly mislocated, probably due to GPS error in the field. When I click on the point I can edit it's attributes, but I'm unable to move the point. 

Cheers!

It's possible in the new Map Viewer (BETA) to update a single point feature. Here is how I accomplished the task:

  1. Go to Content and find Feature Layer.
  2. Click the ellipses (...) on the Feature Layer and select "Open in Map Viewer (BETA)."
  3. On the right-hand side of the Map Viewer, select "Edit."
  4. In the Editor pop-up, select "Edit Feature."
  5. Select the feature you want to move.
  6. Click and drag the point to the new location.

Thanks Christian! After updating the point's location it appears as if there are two points with the same attributes. However, refreshing the screen I see only the modified point is saved within the map and feature service. 

I'll have a read through Beta article you shared. 

Cheers!
