I have a feature class with many fields that I need to rearrange the order in the edit widget within WebApp Builder.   It appears that the only way is to move each field one at a time.  If I have a field at the top and I need to click down about 50times to get it to the bottom since I don't want that field to be edited and therefore don't want it at the top of the list.

This is feature layer hosted on ArcGIS server and for my pop-ups I need the field so I would prefer to not create two services removing the fields before I publish the service to ArcGIS server.

Is there a better way?

Todd,

   currently using the UI, no there is not a better way. You can go into the config_Edit.json and manually cut and paste the fields if you pay close attention to the json structure. If you are not real confident about editing the json directly I would give it a go anyway and then runs your whole config_Edit.json through a online json linter

How would I get access to the Edit_config.json file and then how would I upload those changes back to ArcGIS Online.

Todd,

   Well using WAB in AGOL changes things you can only get access to the main config.json for editing using the ArcGIS Online Assistant, so that does not help you. The only way you can do what I suggest is if you are using Web AppBuilder developer or you are willing to get WAB dev and host your downloaded AGOL WAB app on your web server. As this is probably more effort for you to do then to move the fields one at a time this is likely a mute point.

Thanks for the feedback.

For now, I'm rebuilding my feature class so the fields are better organized.
