Do forms auto-save answers as the user fills the form?

    I currently use Active Campaign for my project questionnaire form, but the form doesn't auto-save and it typically takes 2-3 hours to complete. This is an issue because the form times out, and then the user can't 'submit' form - which leads to angry clients.

    Does JotForm have this functionality?

    With JotForm it is possible to save the form and continue later. We have two options:

    1. How to Enable Auto Fill feature

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

    2. How to Save Forms and 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. The users will be able to access their sessions from any locations.
