    Prevent a sub-account from deleting the form and submissions

    Asked by cbhouses on January 21, 2017 at 04:43 PM

    I created a sub-account for an employee and I want to prevent her from being able to delete forms and submissions. I didn't find that function anywhere. How can I do that?

    I'm evaluating Jotform and want to upgrade but I need to make sure no employee will be able to delete date.

     

    Thanks,
    Mario

    Hello Mario,

    Edit permission gives them the ability to delete the form. The same with view submissions, they will see an option to delete the submissions data.

    Unfortunately, we do not have specific permissions for delete option so I will forward this to our developers as a feature request. This option might not be added sooner but we'll let you know for sure once this is implemented.

    Something like this I think would be a good addition:

    For now, you might want to share your submissions using the following method. This only gives them view limits and not able to delete the data.

    Thanks!
