    If I delete a field from the form, does the existing data of the field will be deleted?

    Asked by gndzero on October 05, 2016 at 02:39 PM
    Third, when I went to delete a field in the same form mentioned above, it told me that ... "If you delete this question, you'll lose the associated data." Is this referring to so data collection as to who and how many people have used this field in this particular form or is it just saying if I delete it, that particular data will no longer be collected since I deleted the field?

    Please be noted that if you delete a field from a form, the field data that is already collected for the form will be deleted. Since you have deleted the field, it is no longer displayed on the form and in the submissions as well.

    Hope this information helps!
