Edit existing survey data

The owner of a survey can edit any responses sent for their survey on the survey's Data page on the Survey123 website, or in the web app using URL parameters.

Submitters with the necessary permissions can edit their own survey responses in the web app using URL parameters. If a submitter has viewer privileges, they can also edit their responses through the survey's Data page on the Survey123 website.

Minor edits can be made to survey responses in the data table on the survey's Data page.

Caution:
  • Changes made in the data table are saved immediately and cannot be undone.
  • Constraints and calculations will be disregarded.
Note:
  • Only the survey owner can edit responses in the data table.
  • You cannot edit attachments through the data table.
