    Agreed, we make changes to our app on a regular basis and this prevents us form being able to go pack to previous submissions and edit as needed.

    Yes please this is a huge issue for me as I use the app to collect client info and I constantly need to update their details and therefore I am unable to update the app ever even the smallest change because I will be unable to edit submissions on my iPad which is where I capture all the data not on the computer. I would happily pay for this app if this one feature was updated

    Agreed.  When an app changes version numbers, it forces people to have to redo work that was already done if an edit has to be made...

    It seems like there could be (at least) 2 approaches to this.

     

    Option 1:

    Allow re-dispatching the data from a submission in an older version to the latest version of an app....

    ...maybe the process could run a pre-flight check.  If it found any discrepancies, you could present a data mapping screen where we could choose which field(s) in the old app to map to which field(s) in the new app (probably for this dispatch only) (i.e. if a field was renamed or deleted between versions)... If one or more fields were added in the new version of the app and didn't exist in the previous version of the app, those fields could just be left blank in the dispatch to the new version.

     

    Option 2

    Allow assigning old version(s) of app(s) to user(s), then the normal mobile edit functionality could be used for this.

     

    It would even be good to have both options.

    Yes, Please make all version of app submissions editable, when you are using your existing submitted apps as a template for future use it makes it impossible to update the app with modifications and still use the existing submissions

    Please work on this! So annoying to go in and not be able to edit old tickets on mobile!
