    Disappearing drop down options in Umbraco forms

    Our set up is Umbraco version 7.7.6 and Umbraco Forms: "6.0.8"

    We have an issue where we have a form that a user has set up and they some drop down questions. They have inputted several items to appear on the drop downs and published the form.

    Several days later some of the options in more than one of the drop downs have disappeared. They have said that they haven't touched the form, they have just disappeared.

    Is there any possible explanation?

    This seems like the funky issue where Umbraco Forms first started supporting storing form definitions within the database, yet the previous way of storing those definitions as files could cause some confusion.. I think that might have been an Umbraco8 change though, but leads me to the next thought - your deployments: Editing the forms on the live site, for example, will make updates to the forms definitions in App_Data/UmbracoForms/forms. Unless your deployments ignore this folder, it's possible that a code deploy will overwrite the authors updates with whatever is in your git repo (or similar).

    Hope this helps you track it down.. Post some more info otherwise and we'll try to help you get it solved, good luck!
