    Trying to delete a submission via the iphone app doesnt work

    Asked by Aft3rd4rk on April 18, 2011 at 09:31 PM

    When trying to delete a submission via the iphone jotform app it doesnt work. You can swipe sideways and the delete button shows, touch the delete button and it dissaperas only to refresh and reappear moments later?

    Apart from that it works perfectly and ive intergrated it with dropbox. Awesome app.

    Hi Aft3rd4rk,

    Thank you for bringing this to our attention and we apologize for the inconvenience. May we ask which submission entry are you trying to delete? Have you checked this submission in your computer to confirm if it has been deleted? It may take some time for the change to be saved in our servers and then reflected back to your iPhone App, so please wait for a few minutes and try to check again.

    If an hour has passed and it still doesn't refresh, please let us know so that we can further investigate. Thank you for using JotForm!

    Hi guys,
    I ended up deleting it via my computer with no issues. I had tried previously (days ago) to delete via iphone but it kept reappearing in my iphone app.
    Seems maybe an issue within the app?

    Looking at all possible causes, I have come to the conclusion that this is either an issue with your phone's internet connection or a glitch within the application. Either way, I will have this issue escalated to the proper department so that our able developers can inspect if there really is something wrong with the app and fix it in the soonest time possible.

    Thank you for bringing this to our attention. We will notify you of any updates regarding this matter via this thread.

    I am having the same issue.  I checked the web application and the submission was still there some 10 hours later.   One further bit of information I am using using an Iphone via wifi as cell coverage sucks where I live
