    removing options on form deletes all associated data

    Asked by doctorjuice on November 29, 2012 at 12:15 PM

    As time slots fill up I would like to remove the option from the form but keep the data for my clients - how do i do this? If I remove check box lists or drop down menus then all associated data is removed ....?

    That is correct, if you remove a field, the data is also lost. I would recommend you to download your submissions into an  Excel Report in order to backup the data . You can also integrate your form with google drive or dropbox for future submissions to be backed up as well.

    I hope this clears out your concern

    Is there a way to make form elements hidden?

    I guess one way of doing that would be injecting some custom CSS to hide the fields.

    Which of your forms are you looking to do this one, and what fields do you want to hide or may want to hide in the future?
