    Import Data App - Submission Date Not Carried Over

    Asked by markashton on October 02, 2014 at 04:35 AM


    I have successfully used the Import Data App.

    Takes a bit of work ... but it does do the job.

    One thing I noticed is that the submission dates of the original submissions are not carried over. I understand that it is not possible, from my experience using the App, that this can be done.

    Am i missing something?

    For the data Import jobs I am doing it is important I retain the original submission date and carry it over into the receiving form.

    Thanks Regards Mark

    Hi Mark,

    I was also able to see the lacking of the Submission Date in the Import Data App during the process


    Even though my source data  have column/header "Submission Date" it was not included in the header mapping when using the App. This will result in the imported data lacking the submission date data.

    I am not sure at the moment if this is by design. 

    But let me elevate this to our higher teams support so that the author of the app check on this.

    We will notify you for any updates on the status.
