Deleting Responses

1) You can delete a specific response if needed (by right clicking on the approved icon, click to "Reject" and then right click again and press “delete”).

2) You can also remove the older responses in bulk by going to form responses, then mouseover Form Actions and click to Delete old Responses.

This will let you delete multiple responses in a few clicks.

  • Ability to delete many responses in batch
  • Ability to use the current filter (e.g. delete all responses from one member) 

If you are using the Free or Standard subscription, it is only possible to delete responses that are older than 30 days.
On Advanced and Premium subscriptions - any responses can be deleted.


Undeleting Responses #

Yes, we know undelete is not a real word!
But in an effort to help you along, let’s just agree it means to retrieve data you have deleted.

If you delete any response, that response is kept within the system for another 14 days. This is a security measure to help clients that have removed responses by accident. We have received a lot of requests in the past from Nest Forms clients requesting their data to be undeleted.

You can see your deleted responses if you amend the filter on the responses page and tick the “Deleted” checkbox, then press filter.

Then when you see the response you want to undelete, right click on the bin icon and choose "Approve".

After 14 days, any data you have deleted is permanently removed and there is no way we can retrieve this data after the 14 day period. 

Deleted forms are also kept for 14 days - see more on Deleting Forms.
