There are two ways to delete submissions:

From the Paperform Dashboard

  1. Click "X Results" next to your form.
  2. Select the checkboxes to the left of the submissions you wish to delete.
  3. Select ‘Delete X Selected…’

From the Form Editor

  1. Go to Share → Results.
  2. Select the checkboxes to the left of the submissions you wish to delete.
  3. Select ‘Delete X Selected…’

Select the checkboxes to the left of the submissions you wish to delete. This will reveal the "Delete X Selected" button. Clicking this will delete the selected submissions.

Deleting all submissions

If you want to delete every submission for a form, head to the Submissions page for the form and select Delete → All. You will see a popup asking you to confirm you want to delete all submissions for your form.

Clicking the "Delete" button and selecting "All" from the dropdown will delete all submissions.

Deleting submissions before a specific date

There are several options for deleting submissions before a specific date:

  • Older than 7 days
  • Older than 30 days
  • Custom

To select one of these options, click "Delete" and choose the desired option from the dropdown. If you select "Custom," you can specify the date and time before which you would like to delete submissions.

If you select "Custom" you will be prompted to select a date and time to delete submissions before.

File uploads and Custom PDFs

Paperform stores file uploads and Custom PDFs using Amazon's "S3" file storage service. We these separately from other submission data and only delete these on request because the files must be hosted somewhere to be viewed and retrieved. Check out our article on disabling the storage of submissions for more on this.
