ArcGIS online: Adding multiple points based on imagery

I'm working on a project and it requires adding multiple points, with no attributes, based on identified objects in the imagery. We just published a features service so that we could start editing in the webmap (and thus from the field), but I'm running into a workflow issue and am wondering if there is a way around it.


We need to add multiple points quickly, they have no predefined coordinates, and are based on buildings we identify in the imagery. The feature service has 50 or more templates for the different point types. Currently I have to scroll down the list of templates, choose the template I want, click on the point on the map then it pops up the attributes to populate. When I want to add another point I have to repeat the whole process including scrolling through the templates (since it scrolls back to the top after each point). In ArcMap it is quick - choose the template, click, click, click, etc. then finish editing.


Is there a setting somewhere that can make this quicker? Or a workaround?


If more information is needed, please let me know.
