Updating Kobo form design with previous data still saved

Hi,
I am currently trying to use the Kobo API to upload an XLS form to Kobo. However the use case that i currently face has the form design changes especially changes like list changes adding and editing list items. However wen i try and upload a new form with the old one having data i am forced to delete the old form with the data. is there a way i can change the form keep the old form data but have the new form design…However only new form data will be submitted

Hi Zahra,
We’re rolling out a new feature currently to allow you to update a form even if it has received submissions already. This will allow you to change question wording and form design even after having received new submissions.

Best,

Tino
