Adding the scratch dataset layers helps store the geometries created using feature builder functions. The scratch dataset can be displayed and added using the Add Scratch Data Layers tool.
- Start ArcMap.
- On the menu bar, click Customize > Toolbars > Production Feature Builder.
- Click the Feature Builder button on the Production Feature Builder toolbar.
The Feature Builder window appears.
- Click the Add Scratch Data Layers button at the top of the Feature Builder window.
The layers in the dataset are added to your table of contents if this is the first time you are adding scratch layers; any geometries in it are displayed on your map. If you already have scratch layers, a message will appear asking you if you intend to add another one.
