    How To Update Multiple Submissions Simultaneously

    Asked by MicahNikkel on March 22, 2016 at 11:21 AM

    I only see a way to update Submissions one at a time, which doesn't work for me.  I have added a field to my form that will default to the current date, but I can override it if needed (unlike the Submission Date).  The problem is that this field isn't filled in for the past submissions, as it didn't exist when they were submitted.  How do I update them to a particular value without opening each one, changing it, and submitting it?

    I really hope there is a way to do this!

    Hi there,

    As you have noticed, it is not possible to edit multiple submissions at a time. However, you can download them as a Excel file and edit them on one of the office software, then you can re-import them by using the import tool. Currently, this is the only option you have to edit them simultaneously.

    Please try this one and let us know the results.
