    When re-integrating a form, can I prevent all previous submissions form populating the new spreadsheet?

    Asked by mintdentistry on June 27, 2016 at 06:00 PM

    Every time I re-integrate a form or I add a new field to my form, it sends all previous submissions to the spreadsheet. As you can see from our account, we make thousands of submissions a month and it makes it very difficult for us when we have to add/modify a field to have to remove all past history from the spreadsheet.

    Thanks for any assistance!

    Looks like you have deleted your submission from this form: http://www.jotform.us/form/61785808127161.

    Try clearing forms cache, and re-integrate with Google Spreadsheet.

    Hey BDAVID this is not the form I was referring to. I meant more in general, every time I make an edit on any form, all previous submission history gets dumped into the spreadsheet and would like to prevent that from happening.

    If you change the form design the history is dumped to mirror the new form design. It is done so that if someone submits the edited form it will be inserted into the new spreadsheet.
