I want to delete multiple records (captured by specific user) from ODK Aggregate.
I understand I can download the CSV file data and mark Delete as True, then transfer the data again to aggregate server. However considering other users have the same data on their tablets, the next time they Sync will it not restore the Deleted data? Is there anything I have to do to preserve the Deletes.
Also is there a moment when all the Deleted data will be completely deleted from the server or it will remain there with the Delete flag?
If you use ODK-X suitcase to download the data, then mark which records to delete and make that update on the server using Suitcase, that will then delete those records from the tablets when they next sync. All the data would sit there on the server with the delete on the row, since you would not be sure when people sync, so if a fieldwork syncs a month later or something, they would still need the delete record to be on the server.
@elmps2018 thanks for the quick response. Just one more question.
Does this only work when I upload using Suitcase only? If I make changes to my CSV file and I load that on my development tablet and Sync to the server, will that work as well?
