    How to delete submissions automatically after certain time has passed?

    Asked by fieldsharepoint on March 10, 2015 at 11:30 AM

    Hi guys,

    I am wondering if it is possible to add the option to allow automated delete after a certain time frame. If unable, would it be possible to delete multiple submissions through a POST action?

    We have one app that would do that for you, but it would remove them as they come in, right after all other integrations get executed.

    Auto Delete Submissions

    At this time it can not be executed in some other time, but you could also utilize our API.

    For example you can get all submissions using the GET call: http://api.jotform.com/docs/#submission-id

    Once you get the submissions, you can always limit them to certain time frame or other conditions in your code and then remove them using the DELETE command: http://api.jotform.com/docs/#delete-submission-id
