I have an existing point dataset that my colleagues want to use in Field Maps.  I added all the necessary fields to collect GPS coordinates on them.  Is there a way in Field Maps to fill new collected coordinates on an existing feauture?  It's working on new features just fine.  Is there a way to do it without having to copy to a new feature and delete the old?

Hello Kimberly,

When you converted your colleagues dataset into a feature layer, did you set the settings to include Update Attributes and Geometry? if so you should see a button in field maps "Update Point".

 

The editor must  have editor rights, but if you can add content already that shouldn't be the problem.

Kind of new, so maybe I misunderstood.

Yep, I can update geometry and attributes, but it only seems to update the GPS fields on insert, not on an edit of an existing feature.
