Hello,

We have a regular need to update feature classes within a geodatabase with new data. This takes the following approach:

   Open ArcMap

   Add the QA_ feature class

   Data Management Tools > Features > Delete Features

   Drag in the data you want to load from ArcCatalog

   Data Management Tools > General > Append

   Set Schema to NO_TEST

We repeat this process 20-50 times.

Is there a way to automate this?

Many thanks

If Python coding is beyond your reach, you can also use What is ModelBuilder?—ArcGIS Pro | Documentation.

Yes. Write a Python script and schedule it to execute every 30min (decide time based on your requirement) using Windows Task Scheduler.

One suggestion: If you are deleting all records from the feature class, use the Truncate Table tool. That will be much faster.
