    I seem to be having similar issue to below comments but I can't quite find the right answer. I have the two forms and seem to be functioning fine but after I completed a test form, I clicked on the received link from Form 1 on a different device and the Form 2 information was blank. I have the AUTOFILL enabled so I don't know if that's the only reason why it works with the same browser/device. Also, the comment below worries me that once one person enters the information, everyone can see it? Is that true? Like others, I'm trying to develop a system whereby individuals can go back and edit their responses and would only want the individual user to see his/her individual information. Thank you.

    Using autofill will affect only the one browser on one device. However, I see you are implementing the save forms and continue later feature. If you want to implement that feature you need to follow the instructions here:

    Yes kind of. This depends on the session id. Usually this is simply just an email address. So if they knew your form URL and a session id they could potentially access the form and modify its values.

    The save forms and continue later feature and the autofill feature will remember information before you submit it. If you only want your user to be able to edit a submission they made a much simpler approach is to use an edit link. Instructions are here:
