My Question is the same as this: except I am using ArcGIS 10.5.1 Autofill field based on location in QGIS

I do not want to use field calculator, is it possible to have certain fields auto-populate when creating a new feature, with values based on its location?

For example, if a new point is within polygon A, then field 1 = True if not within polygon A field = false

Default value is not ideal, it does fit my need. Any suggestions?


The ArcGIS Attribute Assistant will do this. This is a free add-in from Esri that auto-populates fields based on settings and parameters you define.

The Attribute Assistant has a Location Method that offers a number of different ways to populate location onto different types of features.

Also the Intersection Features method for setting value based on one feature intersecting with another feature.
