    As a job applicant, can i save a partially filled form without submitting it.  Then later come back and complete and submit the form? Also, when applicants get rejected, they apply again chaging something minor about their application.  As a potential employer, how do i prevent people from applying again, if they were rejected after their first submission?

    Thanks.

    Something similar is available for multi-page forms. I explained it in more detail here:

    Another possible approach would be to let users come back to the form with the edit link: Change your "Submit" button to "Save" button. Then they include an edit link in the emails and let them come back and edit their form.

    For preventing users from applying again, you can use the "Unique Submission" option on the Preferences:

    Thankyou so much for the help but there is still a slight error. 

    When i set the Unique Submission to be Loose Check its not allowing more than one submission. What i want was for one person to not be able to apply twice not for anyone to not be able to apply. Thats what the error says "multiple submissions for this form has been disabled" help please !

    What is the difference between "not allowing more than one submission" and "not be able to apply twice"? Aren't they same? Since you have submitted that form previously you are not able to submit it again. Isn't that what you would like?

    Hi sorry for bothering you so much, perhaps i didn't explain myself correctly. What i require is for several people to fill out this form but at the same time i don't want the same person say Mr. X to apply more than once. So perhaps there is a way where we can control Mr. X from not applying again by keeping a condition that no duplicates allowed in E-mails. 

    What Lose Check is doing at the moment is if Mr. X applies from one computer a Mr. Y cannot apply from the same computer but can from another computer. So its barring people from applying from the same computer rather than restricting just Mr.X from applying again.

    Unfortunately no, there is no feature that would allow you to check the unique name or email address.
