I need a polygon layer to draw in order based on a date field... What I'm trying to do:
I need to display an easement feature class with two different symbols: one for easements and one for vacations. In addition, I need this layer to draw in an order that represents the date in which they were recorded (stored in a date field). Using symbol levels is not an option because I am working with thousands of different dates (Also, ArcMap symbology options do not recognize date fields as dates...). The sort tool, which reorders the features in the database, is also not an option because this feature class is constantly being updated and it is not feasible for this tool to be ran frequently.
