Dispatched forms to update when changes made to the form

When updating forms and making changes, it would be great to have these changes apply to forms that have already been dispatched to devices.

We have over 1000 forms dispatched to devices at times and rather than having to dispatch all forms again, to have the ability to update these forms when the reconcile with the up to date changes would really be a useful feature.

    Hi Joe,

    Thanks for submitting this request!   I definitely understand the need for users to get the most updated version of a form.

    However, we do typically consider it necessary to "lock in" a form or a dispatch once it has data in it.   While a form change MIGHT be minor, it could also be major -- for example, maybe the fields that you dispatched data into don't exist anymore, and there is nowhere for that data to go.   We think it's important to never "drop" any data that you've given us.

    What kind of changes are you typically making that you wish would sync automatically to dispatches?

    And out of curiousity, how long are those 1000's of forms typically in a dispatched state before they get worked on?
