Hello,

Is it still the case that when copying a form into a new survey, Survey123 removes the attachments?

Our customer uses Survey123 version 3.11.164 and still faces this behavior.

If this behavior still exists as "works as designed", what is the workaround?

Thank you very much, best regards,
Jürgen

Hi @JürgenBiendara,

Are the attachments in the parent layer or inside a repeat (related table)? 

Can you share your xlsxform so I can take a closer look?

Regards,

Phil.

@JürgenBiendara Forgot to mention, yes, the expected behaviour is that the attachment is removed from the copied survey. The reason behind this is that if the same attachment is left attached to both surveys, and the first one is deleted, or the attachment removed from first survey, it will also get removed from second survey.

Note that there is a issue with attachments in repeats not being removed. Hence why I asked.

Phil.
