I would recommend moving your editing workflow to use some of the Esri templates. This allows you to setup rules for attribute transfers while editing amongst other things. I would highly recommend looking at the following template. It was built for Water/Wastewater but I have implemented it for other uses outside of the utility industry.
The download will be somewhat large because they include an example geodatabase. You will want to look at the documentation for the Attribute Assistant. Once you start reading that document your head will start spinning with the possibilities. You can with this template generate your own unique id's whenever a new feature is generated, you can also track date/timestamp fields, and which users made the edits based on windows login credentials or db credentials. Hope this helps!
