    What is the best practice if you change a form in midstream to for example: today, you are requiring certain mandatory firelds to contain data upon sumission of the form, but tomorrow, two of those fields are no longer required. Clone the form and update or use the existing form? The concern is preserving existing data captured thus far.

    Thank you for contacting us.

    If you are going to delete some field it is better to clone the form, then use that new form. Otherwise, you will lose associated field data. Alternatively, you may download form submissions data.

    However, if you are going, for example, to change the field name or mark it required/unrequired, you can just update the form.

    Please feel free to contact us if you need any further assistance.

    Is there anyway to change the form from just a Name section, to "Full name" from  the "quick tools"section without loosing associated data?

    If you refer to change the label, you won't lose any associated data, including conditional logics

    Cheers!
