    Do you want to use the same JotForm for this year? Generally the submissions will also be having the date and time stamp when the submission was received. By this field, you'll be able to identify which submission belongs to which year. You may also save the submissions by downloading to Excel from the submissions view or transferring to Google Spreadsheet as a backup of old submissions. If you are deleting the old submissions from your JotForm, please make sure that you are having proper backup of them. Please be noted that the submissions once deleted from JotForm cannot be recovered in any way.

    Or, you may clone the existing JotForm to a new one which will be a separate JotForm for the year and so the responses are.

    Hope this information helps. Please let us know if you have any other questions. We will be happy to help.
