Editing without Clicking on a map

I'm looking to build a new application that allows staff to edit a service/layer. They will be inputting new survey benchmark data based on lat/long.

All of the current samples I have seen on the ESRI site show the editing done by clicking a point on a map and then populating the fields in the popup.

My goal would be to input the fields first and then have the app recognize the x,y and draw new point.

This would eliminate the error of the spot being clicked not actually being the correct coordinates.

Also, they will be doing the input at the office, so enabling GPS or similar in the app won't be helpful.

Does anybody know of a sample or way to do this?
