I was able to pull data from another layer based on the connection. I was wondering if it is possible to push data from a connecting layer to another layer. If you have a line layer and a point layer and you want info in the point layer to populate fields in the upstream line layer. It would be nice to run an intersect on a line endpoint, find a line field and populate it with a field from the point layer. My example is, if I have a manhole with an assetid, and in the water main has a field with assetid downstream. Once that manhole assetid has been populated it pushes the value to the upstream main.

It is possible to update another layer when a feature is created by using attribute rules.
