    Asked by tinman230 on April 02, 2016 at 08:59 PM

    I have a form with 22k submissions on file. I want to delete everything prior to Feb 1st, 2016 from the data base. Is this possible?

    The first thing you need to do is select a custom time frame. Set the custom time frame from the time you first receive a submission to the day prior to February 1, 2016.

    In my example below, I have set the custom time frame dates from the month I started to receive submissions to the date prior to September 1, 2015.

    Notice that the submissions after August 31, 2015, is already not showing after I have set the custom time frame.

    After that, click the Delete Submissions in Time Range button. 

    To restore, the submission after September 1, 2015, I have selected "All Time" from the settings.

    Please be very careful in performing this action and make sure you have set the correct dates before making any deletion. Please note that deleted submissions are not retrievable. We suggest you download the submissions you would like to delete first by following the instructions on this guide.
