    Is there a way to prohibit users from deleting submissions for a form?

    I'd like to prohibit the deletion of submitted records.  Can I do that somehow?

    Are you referring to sub-users you created where you share your forms? Or those who fill out the forms?

    The owner or the user who created the form is the only one who can view, edit and delete the submissions displayed in the Submissions page, unless you provide the edit_link to your users where they can update their submissions. Other than that, you are the only one who can delete the submissions.

    I hope this helps. Let us know if you need more information on this.

    Thank you.
