Collector: Stream line and take a point at the same time?

Hi,

 

I have kind of been browsing around for a solution to a problem we have with our workflow and wanted to see if there was anyone else out there who has a remedy.Our field collectors are going into the field to do weed surveys and control. They walk a transect and treat any weeds they fine in our reserves. 

Currently the way we have collector classic set up is there are two feature classes, one a line and one a point. When they begin the transect our collectors will start streaming the line. This line shows ground that we have covered. When our field workers do find a weed they have to take a point with type of weed and quantities. 

 

The problem is, currently they have to stop their stream to collect that weed point and many times forget to turn their stream back on. Many of them are used to using Garmin units that we are trying to phase out. Is there a way to keep streaming and collect a point? I looked into using survey123 but its a little cumbersome for some of our users to switch to another app, use it, then switch back to collector (classic). Iʻm not sure if Iʻm just not seeing the stream/take a point functionality? How do I enable being able to stream a line and take a point? 

 

Thanks!
