    Lost previous submissions to a question when I deleted a field on form

    Asked by skillscout on June 23, 2016 at 06:13 PM



    Please help. I lost all the data to a field I most recently deleted. I didn't know I would lose ALL the data from that previous question.


    Is there any way I can retrieve that data back?

    When a field is deleted that has submission data, there should be a pop-up stating that data associated with that field will be removed if the field is deleted.  In any case, if you restore your form to a previous save point before the field was deleted:


    The data should also be restored for that field.
