Prompt for attribute values for new features

Discussion created by cmicallef on Mar 31, 2014
I have created a feature class in a file geodatabase that will be edited by very novice GIS users. Is there a way that I can have ArcGIS prompt them to enter attribute values each time a new feature is created?

I have set up the feature class to "allow nulls=no", but at the moment it simply fills the fields with blanks or zeroes and you have to consciously go to the attribute table to enter valid values.

I would like it to prompt for a value to be entered for each required field and if nothing is entered, then the feature can not get created.

I can't set up subtypes or domains as the values vary considerably for each feature.

Can anyone offer any advice on how I can set this up? Or why it may not be feasible?

thanks
