# 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.

# Use in Input App

  • 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). We set Input to remember values for attributes Name and Value by checking the checkboxes next to these attributes.

  • Save the feature
  • When creating another feature, the checked attributes in the form will contain last entered 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.
