    If I change one of the questions on my application/jot form, will it affect the applications/forms already filled in/that we have received?

    Please note that if you just change/edit a question of your form, its data will not be affected. However, if you delete a field/question of your form, then the data related to it will be deleted too. Sometimes, it will show a warning message saying that if you delete the field, its data will be deleted too, but sometimes it will not show the message.

    So, if you wish to delete some field(s), I recommend you to make a backup of your submission data by exporting it to Excel,CSV or PDF first, that way you will not lose it.

    Please inform us if you need further assistance with this inquiry.
