    If you change a form after users have submitted data all day long, does this data completely disappear? If the fields change/delete...etc. Is all the data gone forever?

     

    Thanks,B

    Since the fields are not available on your JotForm, the data already collected cannot be displayed in the submission data. I think that the data related to these fields is not deleted from the database. Could you try restoring the form to the previous version before you delete the fields to retrieve the data of the fields deleted from your JotForm. Please refer to the guide below that can help you in restore your JotForm to an earlier version.

    Luckily, I didn't delete them altogether. I altered a few & I was able to see the info again. Whew! Good to know, though.

    Thank you!
