update s-drive form - but I lose data ? - Post ID 245270
I guess since I am removing an entry field or two it would ? So what...? Best to same the data for spread sheet entry and just delete the old form and publish the new?
I first published the new form and then realized after logging into Coffeecup that there were 2 forms, the old and the new.
I'm allowed 3 forms under the current plan.... I guess I can keep the older form until the enrollment (form purpose) is up just for data access and then delete it. And my client will have to deal with 2 spreadsheets. I don't think they are going to like the headache this might cause. They might want to live with the existing form until it's cycle of use is over....
Kind of talking to myself, but I imagine others have had to deal with this situation and possibly come up with solutions.....
Main question is: If I update my S-drive form with the same name and same fields (just removed one option) will the current form results data stay in my Coffecup results page. Thanks...............................
I did a test with an added form, submitted data, re-uploaded, and it kept the current form results data. I kept all the fields but removed a radio button selection so there was only one option and then used a the display rule on that option to hide an entry field that wasn't desired. Blah blah... problem solved. Goodnight.
I still need to test what happens when you change the number & style of data entry fields and re-upload a form.
Have something to add? We’d love to hear it!
