How do I reset a webforms entry count?

I built a new webform and during testing I generated a few test rows into the underlying spreadsheet.  I am able to delete these test rows but how do I reset the entry count that appears when the form is opened from the sheet.  Setting it back to zero would be ok. 

 

Thanks for any guidance that you can provide.

  • Try the clone option!

    I am having the same issue however my auto generated numbers are across multiple sheets that I used the same template on.  I can delete the lines that I used as testing but the numbers will not reset back to zero.  I have reset the column that Auto numbers with an additional digit to the number but is still pulls the number that is next in sequence from the original Sheet I created the template off of.  I have tried the suggestion of cloning the web form however the smart number will not reset.

    Hi,

     

    The clone function works but only feasible at certain points in time since a new URL is generated. I found that there are times that I want to reset the count because of a survey version change but not want to confuse the users by distributing a new URL.  I suppose I could do this by hidding a field on the form with the version number and updating it as the form changes.  It still doesn't address the count issue on the form but probably a viable workaround.

     

    Thank you all.
