    Number of entries not matching total number of submissions

    Asked by roxyshox on September 05, 2012 at 11:53 AM

    Under the forms tab, my form is saying there have been 198 submissions. However, when I download all the entries into an Excel spreadsheet. Only 179 show up.  Why such a large discrepeancy?  Is a submission somehow different?

    Your form was affected by a server glitch that started yesterday. It may or may not be present anymore, but the discrepancy was caused by the submission counter increasing without any real submissions coming in.

    To make up for this inconvenience, I have cleared your account's monthly limits.

    Thank you for your understanding with regard to this issue.

    Hello, I am also having this problem, though on a larger scale. One of my forms is saying that we have received 1200 new submissions and we are about to reach our monthly limit. Can you please correct this problem so that no one runs into an error submitting one of our forms? Thank you!
