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.

Hi all, 

 

My name is Tom I'm on the forms team within HubSpot. 

At the moment we don't have plans to allow the deletion of form submissions as this would negatively effect reporting and analytics within the forms tool. 

Allowing test submissions is something we've been discussing and we may address submission deletion or test submissions within the future, but for the moment we do not have plans to introduce this functionality within the near future.

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.

@SabariRam is there an update on this?

So it took you guys/gals years to decide that you in fact weren't capable of figuring this out?

 

I must admit these community forums are full of great suggestions with absolutely no movement—Disappointing.

This has to be a must-have feature. Why no update on this?

Wouldn't the solution be to delete invalid contacts aka test contacts? We have been having invalid contacts and test submissions plaguing our CRMs as well and resorted to deleting them all in mass. We got an automation routine that cleans up the database for us.

The latest update from Hubspot support

"Currently, this is only being reviewed by the product engineers, I do not yet see this as something that is in planning or on their radar as of yet. "  so it doesn't seem like they take this seriously. 

I suggest sharing this with other people in your company to comment and upvote this issue and also raise Hubspot support requests until it gets the attention it deserves. Here's why this feature is critical: 

1. GDPR 
2. Spammers - lots of spam submissions that skew data occassionally or just irrelevant contacts we dont want in our reporting
3. Testers, people who test live forms = need to manually filter them out and it also skews conversion rates

Esta funsion deberia ser habilitada ya que nos ahorra tiempo y poder estar libre de spam en nuestros correos.

yes, add this feature, also regarding test submissions - it should be possible to remove them easily, for example from Form's performace dasboard view.

Hi there,

 

Did this ever get solved? I see this request was put in a number of years ago. 

It's something that I really need to action as I have to calculate the tests each time and it affects the ease of reporting.

 

Thanks

I agree. It's just an extra annoying thing to have to do and if someone sees it, they think we got more leads than we really did.

This is extremely important as we have had an employee being harassed by someone and they even have a restraining order, but the person has now taken to using our contact us form to send them inappropriate messages and messages we do not want anyone else with hubspot access to see.  we need a way to delete them.

+ 1 for this, would like to be able to delete the form submission details from the contact. Reason being is sometimes there is data that we don't want to keep any record of, so although i've deleted it from any property storage it is still visible in the submission details. Right now the only way to remove this is to note the customers details and delete the contact and manually recreate it which is annoying as we will lose reporting data such as Submission date/time skewing our lead reporting.

I didn't even notice this has been onging since 2017... this is ridiculous. I wonder if @RafiPN is still even here?

@TylerG fields with contact details are still shown in the form submissions, if a contact has been removed. This is extremely sensitive, if you have to delete data for legal reasons.
