# How to Reuse Last Entered Values

Mergin Maps Input supports faster digitising of similar features by allowing users to reuse last entered values of selected attributes. When attributes are marked for reuse, the values from the last feature are already entered when a new feature is created.

# Reuse last value option

To allow this functionality, follow these steps:

  • Open your project from the home screen

  • Go back to map
  • Click Record and create a new feature
  • In the form you will see checkboxes next to attributes. Here, we have three editable attributes (besides fid). Check the attributes, which values you want to reuse in features you will create next. In our case, we checked the Name and Value. Save the feature.

  • When creating another feature, the checked attributes in the form will contain the values from the previous feature.

You can use the Reuse last value option across multiple layers. Input will remember attributes for each layer separately.

This feature was inspired by QGIS functionality called Reuse last entered attribute values.
