    I have a form where I use a dropbox field to limit options for that field. If I need to change the options on the field after the form is in use what impact will that have on my previous submissions?

    e.g initial dropbox entry options

    • Apples
    • Banana
    • Pear

    Updated dropbox entry options

    • Apple sorbet
    • Banana Split
    • Pear shake

    What unforeseen effects could such changes have on my existing data?

    Thanks for reaching out here!

    On testing further, I have noticed that the previous submissions will remain intact. The existing submissions will be untouched when you update the stocks.


    You may also try it out in a clone form to confirm the same.

    We are glad to help!
