    When a user is working on filling out a form to send in and they need to save and go back later is there a button to put on the form that would allow them to "save"

    You can use autosave using the page break method. Every time to click next, it saves the previously filled data. This method is also known as a session parameter method. Please refer to the link below for the user guide:

    Another way is that you can also enable autofill feature. Please follow below steps to enable autosave. Scroll down and enable the field Continue Forms Later.

    I did this, however, it does not provide a button to show the user that
    they have saved information.

    Please note that there are two form layouts, and the ability to save forms and continue later is different:

    For both layouts, if you want to allow the user to save data in the browser's local storage, simply follow this guide: https://www.jotform.com/help/227-How-to-Enable-Auto-Fill-on-Forms 

    However, if you want to allow the user to continue later from any browser, and device, from everywhere, you need to follow one of these guides:

    For Classic layout: https://www.jotform.com/help/97-How-to-Save-Forms-and-Continue-Later

    For Cards layout: https://www.jotform.com/help/495-Setting-up-the-Continue-Forms-Later-Feature-in-Card-Forms 

    Let us know if you need more help.
