    I just lost some data based on a glitch in your system.  When viewing "Form Submissions" and choosing a "Custom Time Frame", then hitting the "Delete All" button.. IT DELETES ALL SUBMISSIONS, NOT JUST THE CUSTOM TIME FRAME... I think this should be considered a very urgent fix so more people don't lose data.

    So, when you click on DELETE ALL it did not ask for your password?

    We have that password confirmation to prevent accidental clicks. And the button says "Delete All Submissions".

    Sorry, I misunderstood. You mean you only want to delete submissions in a specific time frame and it deletes all instead. I am not sure what would be the ideal solution. We should probably remove that button when a custom time frame is selected.

    Basically, however you do it, I think there should be an option to delete a
    range of submissions. The problem I have is that I end up sitting on the
    computer for 30 minutes, one by one, clicking delete. It takes a long time
    since I have files attached to each one submission. Since you have a way
    of searching and finding a range of submissions based on time, there should
    be a way to delete that custom time frame of submissions. Does that make
    sense?
    Example - In gmail I can search for a time range of emails and delete just
    those emails rather than one by one deleting.
    Thanks again for your attention to this.

    Good morning,

    I am now having an issue opposite of this.  I have over 7000 submissions and need to delete only a specific time period. However, when I have that date range selected in the filter it does not only show the time frame I have selected, it still shows ALL submissions.  Also, when I chose to delete all submissions within that time frame it did not delete them.  They still appeared on the submissions page and also on the grid below.  I need this to work because it would take an incredible amount of time to delete them one at a time.

    Thank you,

    Tiffany Stone
