My survey has two repeats for recording data that changes from day to day. Outside of these two repeats there is a large amount of information that is maintained across several days, so I need to be able to give my users the ability to load all of a previous day's data into a new survey. I am now able to do this from the sent surveys > copy to a new survey. I am using the bind::esri::parameters (query allowUpdates) for loading data into the repeats. Unfortunately, this doesn't seem to allow users to delete out old repeat attributes. I am able to add new repeat responses and edit the loaded responses, but I do not have the option to delete out unnecessary records. I dont remember this being an issue in previous versions, but then again repeats had other issues.
thanks for your help!
I was having a lot of issues with wording on this. I want to delete out the entire old records. the way you do with a new survey if you add a new repeat using the plus icon, and then you can hit the trashcan icon and delete it. It seems like deleting records, at least from the sent survey copied to a new survey should be allowed. I understand that it might not work with modifying sent data from the inbox, because you would be deleting records online. but from what I understand, the sent file is locally stored xml. so deleting it from a new xml copy would be fine.
I think I answered you in another thread, but to consolidate here (as it's own distinct question):
The allowUpdates property does not allow for deleting repeat records; this is to minimize the accidental loss of data. We have discussed an allowDeletes keyword to enable this functionality; I've listed your request in the discussion.
