We have a feature layer in AGOL but it seems that only the owner of the layer can perform the Update Data. Even though editing is enabled for the layer and it is shared both with the entire organization and groups, it still seems as though only the owner can do anything. How do I change this?

Hi Shaun Dillon

From our documentation, only the owner of the item or an organization's administrator can append features to a layer -  Manage hosted feature layers - Append data to layers

Shaun Dillon‌ we have an enhancement internally to expand this capability to members with custom admin roles. If you want to email pklingman@esri.com I would be happy to get your account attached.

Thanks, but we can work around it. Luckily we are a small organization. Im just very surprised at some of these limitations (also seems that some things only work if ALL content in a webmap has the same owner) since it must be hard to use in a large organization with many people working and sharing (which seems to be the big buzword in AGOL and "Pro" with all the required Tags and whatnot) but then everything has be have ONE owner...

Thanks for the response and feedback Shaun Dillon‌ - you're right that there is more to keep track of in a large organization and we are continuously working on improving our administrative tools to be the best possible for these scenarios.
