I have a point file of approx. 500 points that represent movement from a GPS collar on an animal. My table has Lat, Long, and a date stamp. I'm looking for a tool that will draw a line sequentially through the points, roughly following the path of the animal. All of the point to polyline tools I've been looking into don't seem to be what I'm looking for.

I feel like it should be a basic solution, but my research isn't turning anything up. Can anyone point me in the right direction?

 Point tools for Pro

That did exactly what I wanted, thanks! Somehow I never came across that as I was looking. Thanks again
