Allow the ability to delete test form submissions
It's great that you can see a total number of people who have submitted a form. It's sucky when that number is conflated by test data. When viewing form submissions it would be so handy if you could delete the test data submitted as your were building and testing the form.
As long as you are testing from an IP address listed to be filtered under Reports > Reports Settings, submissions will not be counted for landing page or form analytics.

this should not really be set as completed as it doesn't answer the OPs issue.
filtering on IP is fine, but that doesn't block email send for example.
Why not allow the omission of HS users account activity?
Any emails, page views, actions etc are simply ignored from contacts registered as users.

Agree that this needs to be a feature and not rely on setting IPs. IPs can change and testing from the same place doesnt always happen making this pretty hard to upkeep. Just having a simple delete and a confirm deletion button for those test submissions would be easy enough to have. Even protect it with an admin level account if need be.
I don't agree that this idea is completed. We want to simply delete certain form submissions. This could include spam submissions, tests from home that aren't filtered out, etc. I can't run reports off form submissions without manually deleting entries after I export as the test submissions are still there.

This feature would be extremely useful. We test all our forms to ensure they are working properly. This often results in 2 or 3 submissions that are from internal sources. Sales does one test, marketing another and then sometimes a third if something needed to be fixed.
I could even see a dumby email that we could enter that is not tracked as a submission. Anything would be better than the way it currently works.
I end up having to hand calculate my submissions to get accurate info. This kind of defeats the purpose of using a marketing automation software.
I can't even show the reports graph and numbers to my team because they are inaccurate.
