    Hello I found this help page on creating forms that can be saved in the middle of signing:  https://www.jotform.com/help/97-How-to-Save-Forms-and-Continue-Later

    I would like more clarification on this warning box:  

    NOTE: This method requires two forms and a PAGE BREAK in order for it to work, and as a matter of fact our session system will not be able to handle a large amount of records in drop down menus. So please be aware of it, before you implement this method.


    Needing the two forms, I understand. With the "page break" requirement, does that mean they have to fill out the entire (single) page before it will save? 

    Also, I think you meant to explain that your sessions will not be able to handle a large amount of "choices" when creating drop-down menu fields on the form? For example, there are "50" states, which could be a drop-down menu. I really am not sure what you are trying to convey with that sentence?

    My client is having me test out your system - thanks for your time,

    Gina

    That is correct, clicking "Next" will save the current page that the user is on. So they have to fill the whole page.

    Regarding the drop-down field. If you meant to use the dropdown with 50 states in it, it will work fine. I run a couple of tests to double check and the states were showing properly.

    If you have any further questions please let us know.

    Thank you!
