Hello all, 

This may be a silly question - Should I uninstall the existing Survey123 Connect before installing the new version? I kind of expected something similar to Pro - updating will be done while preserving all exciting data and folder structures, but I got an error while trying to overwrite the existing Survey123 folder.

Cheers,

Yup, you have to uninstall Connect before installing the newer version.

When uninstalling, it will say this:

My surveys are stored elsewhere (which I believe is the default), so that's fine. You can double check where yours are saved by clicking on a survey's 3 dot menu in Connect and then choosing Show folder and seeing where that folder lives.

Hi Chelsea, I could install the new version, and confirmed that all my old surveys are still there under user folder. Thanks for sharing your experience.

On mine I can install it but am blocked from Uninstall.  So I just add a 36, 37, etc to the end of the install path. 

Seems to work fine.
