Hi, I have one points shape file (large number of points) and one polygon shape file, the problem I has: the points located in every single polygon in cluster (all at the same location). the question now, is it possible to randomize the current points location  inside the polygons (each polygon with its associated points)?

How about you Create Random Points with the polygon layer as the Constraining_Feature_Class, and join the attribute table based on the FID/OID values?

Hi, thanks for your answer, but I cant control the number of the random points inside each polygon based on my points layer

Could you explain the requirement with snapshots of the current scenario?
