I re-created a survey in the Survey123 Connect XLXForm that Ismael Chivite helped me with at GeoConX 2018 Conference and everything worked great with all the calculations, but when I went back in and made a very minor edit to the survey (which I anticipate I will need to do in the future). When I went to republish I was given the warning that I may lose my data and I proceeded. I did lose all my data, so with that being a reality what does Esri recommend as a Best Practice when you make minor edits (add a new question) to an existing survey and how can you ensure that you DO NOT lose your data?  Should you create a new survey and the merge the data. We are also looking to bring in the survey data into an Operations Dashboard reporting field errors in a more timely and proactive way.


Any advice, tips and best practices from Esri would be very helpful.


Thanks in advance for your help and I look forward to hearing back from Esri.
