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

    How often is is the data saved?

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

    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.
