Uploading changes - new version

Hi guys

I always have projects in field, so there is never a good time to upgrade to a new version.  I upgraded from 8.2.0 to the new 8.2.2 this morning, and Murphy's Law kicked in.  A project that is currently in field (authored under 8.2.0) needs a small change.

Am I safe to upload, do you think?  Or would I be better re-installing 8.2.0 and making the change under that?

Its generally not recommended to upgrade while collecting live data unless you absolutely must have a new feature or a bug fix. I would field all new studies in 8.2.2 but make the change for this study and reupload in 8.2.0. Once data collection is finished, you can analyze it in 8.2.2 safely with no problems.
