    how can we easily set up a long form so the user can save their progress if they need to stop half way through? I’d like an option similar to the attachment rather than the complicated steps I saw online. 


    Please advise. Thank you!

    Hello Krista,

    There are two methods on how to achieve this.

    First, is with the use of session on forms. But this will require you to have page breaks on your form and you will need to find a way how to add the session parameter for your user via URL. Example: http://www.jotform.com/form/123456?session=sessionNameHere 

    This guide will give you a clearer view on this method: https://www.jotform.com/help/97-How-to-Save-Forms-and-Continue-Later

    The second method is by enabling Autofill in your form. This one does not require the form to have the ones from the first. This uses the browser's cookies so it may interfere with the performance of the form upon loading on the page. Here is the guide showing how to enable this feature: https://www.jotform.com/help/227-How-to-Enable-Auto-Fill-on-Forms

    If you have additional questions, please let us know.

    So, there isn’t a way to add a ‘save and resume’ button, like in the
    attached image?

    With using the page break buttons (using the first method), you can rename the text to "save and resume" and if you have the session parameters on the URL, it should save the information entered into the fields once the next page button is pressed.

    Here is a sample form that I have created with the session parameter: https://form.jotform.com/80033728707961?session=1
