Auto populate attributes based on spatial location

Question asked by MollyKFoley on Apr 17, 2019

Say someone is out in the field and they're inside a specific polygon. Let's say there's a "Name" field for that polygon and the name of this specific polygon is Hawk Ridge. When they're inside the polygon and they create a new feature, the "Name" field auto-populates with "Hawk Ridge." Is that something that can be done? It's sort of like subtypes, but instead of picking the subtype out a list, you'd just populate it based on where the person is and then they could edit attributes associated with that subtype. I assume nothing like this has been implemented, but thought I'd ask.
