    Can I edit a live survey?

    Asked by francoisuclan on June 27, 2014 at 11:36 AM

    Hi - I would like to make few amendments to my survey which has been live for some time. I wonder if any changes to my form will affect the earlier received survey takers' responses? 

    Thank you for your help in advance,

    Thank you for contacting us.

    You can definitely edit the form while it is live. If you have given out the direct link to your form, changes will take effect as soon as you hit on save. If the form is embedded on a website using iframe however, you will need to re-embed the form's code to the website in order for the changes to take effect.

    Previous data will not be affected if you made changes to your form. If the form was integrated with google spreadsheet however, you may need to disconnect and re-integrate to update the column headers.

    Let us know if this answers your questions.
