What happens if I change the form after some users have entered data? Is earlier data lost, or does the system just match as many fields as possible?

    I haven't posted the application yet, but am just wondering if it is possible to make changes without losing data already submitted. 

     

    Ours is a scholarship application and I might be adding new scholarships over the two month open application period.

    If you delete any field all the data entered on that field will be lost:

    If you need to remove any field, the solution is to hide the field, in order to keep the submitted information associated with that field:

    Adding fields does not represent any problem. If you have a radio-button and you add more options it also does not represent any problem, but if you need to remove options it is better to create a new radio button and hide the original field.
