    Does save forms and continue later still work if my form has required fields?

    If my form has required fields, is this option viable?

    The answer is both yes and no.

    Regardless whether you have required fields on your form or not, entries are saved any time your users navigate to a different page of the form. This means that the values are saved even on the required fields.

    Please keep in mind that your users cannot navigate to the next page unless all required fields on their current page are filled!

    So if they do not fill out all required fields on a certain page, the only way for the session to save this partially filled out data is if they use the Back button to go to the previous page of a form.

    So yes, data is being saved even in required fields, but your users can only navigate to the following page once all required fields on their current page are filled out.

    If you need further clarifications, please let us know. Thank you.
