    Is there a way to recover a form that was "in process"?

    Asked by Susan Rouanzion  on April 11, 2017 at 07:29 AM

    I hadn't finished filling out a form last week, and now all of my answers are gone.  Only the blank form remains, and I had a couple hours in it.

    Hi Susan,


    I checked the form and it seems that the autofill feature of the form is enabled. It means the inputted data are first saved in the browser so you can continue filling up the form later. If you haven't submitted the form yet, you can access again the data you have filled on the same browser/computer where you first filled up your form. 


    Do let us know if you need further assistance.

    The form I had been filling in is now blank – everything I had filled in went away… how do I get it back?

    Thank you!

    Please note that with Auto Fill feature data will be saved only for one day. You mentioned that you have filled your form last week. Unfortunately your data is gone and you will have to fill the form again. 

    If you want to save your data longer (90 days), then I would suggest you to use Save Form and Continue Later Session Method.
