    Is it possible for front end users to create accounts so that they can save applications they are working on and come back later to complete?

    We would like to use Jotform to create an application for an education program. Is it possible for potential applicants to create user accounts for their application forms so that they can save their applications and come back to them at a later time?

    If I understood you correctly you want to allow your users to save the form with entered data and continue later. This is possible to achieve. Your users do not need have JotForm account. Only you should have JotForm account. 

    You might consider using one of the following options:

    1. How to Enable Auto fill feature - save form entries to continue later 

    Auto fill method is based on browser local storage. It is saving the form data on users browser, so user can open the form later and he/she will see the past data. Note - user will need to use same browser to access data.

    2. How to save form to continue later (Session method)

    The Session method is saving the data on our servers. With this method you will need to use two forms, one for session generation and second as primary. Then users will be able to access their sessions from any locations.

    Hope this will help. Let us know if you need further assistance.
