If the owner of an editable table layer shares the layer with you, you can add the layer to Map Viewer and edit the attribute values.
The layer owner, organization administrators, and members of shared update groups with which the layer is shared can edit a hosted feature layer, hosted spatiotemporal feature layer, or table layer's contents even when editing is not enabled on the layer. The only exception to this is if editing is disabled for specific fields in the layer; no one can edit those.
Edit field values
You can edit values in a table layer and in the attribute table of a feature layer. See Edit features for instructions to update values in the attribute table of a feature layer. Follow the steps below to edit values in a table layer in Map Viewer.
- Confirm that you are signed in and, if you want to save your changes, that you have privileges to create content.
- In Map Viewer, open the map containing the layer or add the layer directly.
- Double-click in the cell that contains the value you want to edit and type a value, or, if the field is configured to provide a list of values, choose the correct value from the drop-down menu. To delete the value when there is a list, choose empty.
- Press Enter to save your changes.
Add related photos and files
Feature and table layers can include related photos or other files as attachments. If the layer owner has enabled attachments on the layer and you have privileges to edit the layer, you can attach related photos and files to records in the table.
Adding attachments to table layers in Map Viewer is not supported at this time.
For instructions to add attachments to feature layers, see Edit features.
