I'm dead in the water if I can't somehow create a "virtual column".

I have a point feature class that has two numeric columns that my field workers will populate.  I need to somehow have third column auto-populate based on a math formula between those first two columns.  In the days of "the coverage" you could do this via a "virtual column" or "derived field".  Seems that this is not possible in the GDB.  FAQ: Are Computed/Virtual columns supported in an Enterprise environment in ArcGIS?

 

Is there any way to do this?  I can't imagine that the only way is to manually go in and use the "field calculator" or jimmy up some sort of scheduled python script.  That just doesn't make any practical sense as my field workers will be in and out all day, days on end and our reporting needs to have that third field up-to-date at all times.  What am I missing here?  We are in the 21st century right?   (I kid, but I'm frustrated).

Thanks, Royce
