Hi Guys,

I didn't find a good title to my question, but I hope with a quick explanation and a link to the map in question, you will understand what I mean.

I've created a hosted feature service with subtypes and included it into a webmapping application. The idea is to collect data of mammal sightings. Here's the App.

To add a new feature, the user now can click on the name of the mammal he has seen and place place a pont in the landscape. To complete the sighting with the necessary information, he can add data to the created feature. What confuses and irritates me is, that the user has now to specify what animal he has seen, when he has already done so by clicking on the appropriate symbol to initiate the adding of the new feature!

Can anybody pinpoint my mistake? Thanks in advance!
