Remove Field From Form but Keep Field in Existing Records

  • 1.  Remove Field From Form but Keep Field in Existing Records

    Hello,
    I am editing a form and it has a few fields that are checkboxes that I am removing because they are no longer applicable.  Is it possible to remove the checkboxes for any new forms that are filled out but keep it for existing records/forms that have been filled out in the past?

    You could apply a form rule that says:
    Condition:
    When [Your Legacy Checkbox] is checked
    Action:
    Show [Your Legacy Checkbox]

    The intended behavior being to only show the field when there is a value in it.
    Alternatively, you could set this form rule:
    Condition:
    When Date Created is On or Before 3/28/2019
    Action:
    Show [Your Legacy Checkbox]
    It just depends on your use case.

    Hi Justin,
    Thanks for the help! I will implement the rule into my form.

    Yes, even though you remove it from the form (and NOT delete the field), you will see the historical data on any existing report you have with the field.
