ArcGIS Online - Auto Populate Fields from separate layer?

I am setting up some maps for use in ArcGIS online (specifically people out in the field collecting data with the collector app).

I wanted to make it so if they place a point, fields get automatically populated with property information of the parcel of land the point falls inside (e.g. Address, Owners, etc), rather than having to input this information manually.

I would be able to do this after the point has been collected using arcmap, or python scripts, but I wanted to know if it could be populated while they are still in the field, so they can view the information..

does anyone know if this is possible?
