    If I change the upload formats (drag & drop to upload) on an integrated form (google spreadsheet), will it delete my uploads from the spreadsheet?

    Asked by bryce on July 20, 2015 at 10:14 AM

    I have a form that requires documents to be uploaded with every submission.  The form is integrated with google spreadsheets so that the uploaded document appears on the spreadsheet as a .pdf download/url.  I have been using this sheet for sometime now and have a lot of information (uploads) that I cannot afford to lose.  Currently the sheet has two methods of uploading documents (drag and drop and upload) and each is used depending on what type of document is being uploaded (i.e. letter or invoice).  I want change both fields to upload and delete the drag and drop field.  My concern is that I will lose all of my past uploads associated with the drag and drop field.  can anyone tell me if there are consequences of replacing the drag and drop with the upload field?

     

    Thanks in advance,

    Hi,

    Deleting the field will remove the uploads from your submission data in your JotForm account and may indeed remove them from the Google spreadsheet.  Both respond to updates in the form in such manner.

    You could always copy your previous data to a new sheet for backup, then make the changes.
