Is there a way to allow users to save their responses and come back to finish the form?

    Hello, 

    We are designing a survey that is pretty long, and we would like to allow people to work on the form, save their answers and come back and fill the rest of it in later. I see that I can leave the form and if I come back in the same browser the questions are still filled in, but I am worried that if someone has settings to clear the cache automatically (after exiting a browser, or shutting down for example) that the responses won't be there anymore. Can you tell me if there is an option to save? 

    Thank you!

    Hello,

    As you did, the users can continue the forms at a later time. However, as you said, if the cache is not available, they might lose the data they have entered.

    Another way to record the answers of the form users is to create a session for them. You need to create two forms, one for creating a session, the other is to collect data. Here is a detailed guide on doing this:
