Delete form submissions

Often times we enter fake data into our own form to test workflows or we get spammed with fake accounts. I'd like the ability to delete form submissions so they don't impact the metrics.

We don't currently have anything planned to allow "fake" or test submissions on our forms. For analytics reasons we don't currently have anything planned to allow the removal of form submissions or views on any forms. 

 

This is something we may revisit within the future. But for the moment we don't currently have any testing outside of whats available within our preview panel within the forms editor on our roadmap.

Please add this feature - I have been filtering out IPs as a workaround but it would be so much easier to just remove test submissions.

This is really critical - not only is it difficult to test, and yes IP address filtering works, but I have third party pay-per-click sites that want to test their own conversion tracking and I can't control them from testing that.  I also often get duplicate submissions back to back that are truly only a single submission being counted twice. We also have companies trying to sell the use that might use a form to contact us, not a conversion we want to count either.

 

At the end of the day, I want to do landing page re-writes and test different things, but its hard if you can't trust the data to know if you've made any improvements.  Please move this up the development list.

 

Thanks!

This is a real need.  I was very surprised to see that I cannot delete form submissions that I submitted as a test.  Now I need to remember to delete them from every export of the results.

 This would really help us clean our data - we are testing our forms weekly which results in dirty data that could be easily prevented with this feature. It's not practical for us to remove IPs or do any sort of similar workarounds as we have our field sales team (based all around the US and the world) downloading our brochures (to tune into the user XP) which means removing IPs is practically impossible. Thank you

Yes please activate this Hubspot. We get spam form completions everyday and this makes reporting to our board difficult as they will look inside HS to get numbers and then we have to frequently fight this fire when we submit our reports.

I agree, this feature could be very helpful in cleaning up our data.

This would be a nice enhancement, epecially when the forms are being used for events.  It would be easier to manage the list within HubSpot, instead of exporting and then making the edits.  This type of process leaves much room for errors.

Along with this idea, I'd love to have the ability to update fields after the original submission to prevent duplicate submissions.

Definitely onboard with this idea! All of the "test" submissions throw off the data and it's a pain to remove them from the exports.
