    Go back to form with data still there for resubmitalls

    Asked by atmpalliard on April 12, 2017 at 05:01 PM

    howdy! I'm trying to make it where after my form is submitted the user could just click back, and see the form again with all the data still there. The reason would be I have clients that have all the same data to submit again for a different address so they only thing they need to change is the address(of a property). I searched through the forums but couldn't find this subject specifically, I tried! Oh, the other factor,

    I send the user to a custom thank you page on my website after submittal, is this possibly why it's not working to come back to the form with data still entact? This function
    used to work. 

    Thanks for your direction :)

    You can create a form such that you can start filling it now and then edit or continue filling it later.

    But that edited record will keep updating 1 single record that was created initially by a particular user. It will not create a new record altogether.

    Here the guide

    Alternatively, you can try using prepopulating fields to your jotform via URL parameter

    I had created a new thread for the other question asked by you
