    How long is the form data saved when the "continue forms later" option is enabled?

    How often is is the data saved?

    I assume that it is being saved locally with a cookie, correct?

    According to our developers, the "Continue Forms Later" option will save the data for only 1 day. Please check this related thread.

    I would recommend you using the session method. In this method, the data will be saved for 90 days. Please check this user guide: https://www.jotform.com/help/97-How-to-Save-Forms-and-Continue-Later.

     

    How often is is the data saved?

    In the "Continue Forms Later" option, the data is saved upon entering the values in the form fields.

     

    I assume that it is being saved locally with a cookie, correct?

    The form field values are saved locally in the browser local storage until the form is submitted.
