If I change (delete or add) questions of the form, how does it affect previous data?

Dear helpers:

Thank you for your help.

Our organization is using Commcare very well these days.

We already made a proto type of survey. Also we are conducting and
gathering data these days using custom export and daily saved export.

At this time,

if I change (delete or add) questions of the form and start getting data
from respondents, how does it affect previous data, previous custom export
and daily saved export?

Hi,

Deleting a question will not change any of the custom exports you set up -
deleted questions will still be included in the export for older forms.

When you create a custom export, you will see a button that says “Show
Deleted Questions and Advanced Properties
”, This will allow you to see and
select advanced properties and questions that have been deleted from the
current version of your application.

You can read more about exports here:
