    Hi David,

    You do have the option to delete all records in the table without deleting the table itself. You can do this by hovering your mouse over the Record ID field header in your everything view. You will see a check box appear that allows you to select all records. Clicking this box will present you with two options, bulk edit and bulk delete. Clicking bulk delete will allow you to delete all the records without actually deleting the table.

    Hope this helps!

    i WANT TO RELOAD MY WHOLE TABLE EACH TIME i DO AN IMPORT. THAT MEANS AFTER THE FIRST UPLOAD, (LIKE THE NEXT DAY), I WANT TO EMPTY THE TABLE AND THEN DO A NEW IMPORT. FROM ADMIN I DON'T HAVE ANY CHOICE EXCEPT TO DELETE; AND THEN ALL IS LOST AND I MUST START OVER AGAIN??? I WANT TO JUST EMPTY THE TABLE!! I SAW THAT YOU HAVE ADDED THAT CAPABILTY, BUT I DON'T KNOW HOW TO ACCESS "EMPTY ONLY"!!!

    Hi Chris,

    We're glad to hear you were able to figure out how to import into an existing table. For your reference, all you have to do is navigate to your app overview page by clicking the admin button and selecting your app. Then finding the table you would like to import into in the list of tables and clicking the 'Import' button in the bottom right of the box. Please let us know if you have any further questions.

    Regards,

    Jake
