A simple but essential Improvement for Button user inputs

Dear Esri Team, 

My suggestion is simple :  Would it be possible to enter a "button user input" at the START of a polyline feature record instead of having the user input popping up after ending a feature record?

A simple toggle button to decide whether the button user input for a given feature record should pop up at the start Or at the end of the record would be a wonderful improvement for our workflow.

I could be wrong but such a functionality might be quite straightforward to code for a developper (using if/then around the lines coding for the button user input pop up?)

We are using exclusive groups with a number of buttons and in most cases, polyline features are ended by starting another one using a different button. (A brilliant functionality!). 

We use (an) Observer(s) to detect and announce observed environmental features to a Recorder who focuses on data input via the QuickCapture App.

All information associated with a feature is given by the observer at the start of the record, not at the end. 

Our problem is as follow : The user input for feature A is annouced by the observer at the start of the observation. Then, the Recorder has to wait for the observer to announce all information for Feature B to get access to the User input for feature A. 

In practice, this means that the Recorder has to click on Button B to enter the user input for Button A, while having to memorize the user input for B and so on.  At a fast pace, this can become very comfusing and impractical.

We love Quickcapture and think it has the potential to revolutionize conventinal practises for rapid environmental assessment in our field and we would be immensely grateful if this feature could be considered for future updates. 

Thanks @IsmaelChivite and Esri teams for your amazing work, support, and capacity to follow up on those ideas. 

Looking forward to reading you.
