    Is there a way to remove duplicates from the count of the submitted forms? I would like to show both the total submissions and total unique submission if possible

    The only means to do a data deduplication for your form's existing submission data is to do it outside the Form Builder.

    You can export or download first the data i.e. to an Excel or spreadsheet file. Then you can do data deduplication using the spreadsheet application.


    On the other hand, there is a way for your form to have unique submission data by eliminating duplicate submissions.

    This will only work for new submissions and not for those already existing on the form.

    You can refer to the user guides below on how to have unique submission data on the form.

    I actually want them to send in duplicates though. They should be sending them daily which will Kickoff emails to the legislators daily and get attention to our issue. I just don't want the count to go higher on the submission count or have a separate count for "unique" submission for Analytics.

    If you want them to send in duplicates, setting Form limits to eliminate duplicate submissions will not be suitable for you.

    The only work around I can think of is what my colleague suggested, to do data deduplication using the spreadsheet application.

    If you need further assistance, please let us know.

    Hello, and thank you for supporting Clifton in our efforts to obtain the funding we have been lacking from the state over the past 11 years. Since our efforts in Trenton, we were able to provide $13.5M in Clifton Schools to date!
    As you may know, I have been attending the Board of Ed meetings for the past 3 years and decided to run for a seat as a commissioner for the Board of Ed. This will allow me to make a difference in our community by continuing the fight in getting the State funding that we deserve.
    When people are considering to move they consider both the safety of the town and the quality of the schools. One of the biggest tasks facing our new Board will be to appoint a new Superintendent. This individual will set the vision for our schools future. Even if you don't have children in the school system, it is imperative that you get out to vote as this decision will directly impact you as a homeowner and taxpayer.
