    There are two ways to achieve this.

    1. Auto-fill method

    2. Session parameter method

    The first and easiest way is to enable the autofill feature, which uses your browser’s local storage to save data for up to 24 hours.

    Go to Settings, then Form Settings, and Show More Options. Scroll down and click the Continue Forms Later option to Enabled. See screencast:

    The second method — session parameter method — is more complicated and uses what is called a Session ID, which is saved as a cookie in your browser.

    Essentially, you’ll need to create two forms and add page breaks to make it work. The first form is where users will fill in the name and email field that will serve as the Session ID. 

    The second form will be your main form where detailed information is collected. Using page breaks, the form is saved each time the Next and Previous buttons are clicked.

    Here’s the complete guide to using the session parameter method.  

    I hope you'll find these useful. Let me know if you need help.
