    How can one collect data from a page prior to submit?

    Asked by capstack on April 28, 2017 at 03:02 PM

    Say i have a 5 page form. On the first page user enters their name, email among other items but exits the form before submitting. Is there a way for JotForm to collect this partial data prior to manual submission? Sort of an ongoing submission?

     It is possible to save form and continue later. You might consider using one of the following options:

    1. How to Enable Auto fill feature - save form entries to continue later 

    Auto fill method is based on browser local storage. It is saving the form data on users browser, so user can open the form later and he/she will see the past data. Note - user will need to use same browser to access data.

    2. How to save form to continue later (Session method)

    The Session method is saving the data on our servers. With this method you will need to use two forms, one for session generation and second as primary. Then users will be able to access their sessions from any locations.

    Please note that data will be shown on your account only when form is submitted.

    Hope this will help. Let us know if you need further assistance.
