I have a point feature layer in AGOL that represents water meters and will be updated with new information monthly. I also need to take pictures of each meter, which are stored as attachments in AGOL for reference. The problem I’m running into is that whenever I update the meters layer each month, I will lose any attachments when the layer is updated. Is there a way that I can update a layer in AGOL without losing the attachments?

 

My current solution for this is to have two copies of the same layer in AGOL: one for updates, and one for photo attachments. Does anyone have a better solution?
