    How can I make a form that would allow a user to enter, as an example, their email address as entered on a form in progress (need to edit and update) from another form and have all current data prepopulate?

    Here is what I am trying to do:

    STEP 1- User fills "splash" form out: https://form.jotform.com/truckersally/short-application-form

    STEP 2- user taken to: https://form.jotform.com/truckersally/truckers-ally-driver-application

    to start with application process.

    I want them to be able to return to my website and access their "in progress" application (step 2)from

    https://form.jotform.com/truckersally/edit-application-login

    What is the best way to do that? NOT cookies, I want the actual form with info prepopulated from JF , not from their browser.

    Thanks!

    You may use the following method to save Forms and continue later.

    Save input data in session: User can save the input data in the session that is stored in our server. Please be noted that this feature requires should have the "Page Break" field. The data is saved only on the click of the next button.

    The following guide should help you:  http://www.jotform.com/features/save-and-continue/

    You can allow users to return to edit their submission in an email autoresponder.  Here is our guide on how to do so:

    https://www.jotform.com/help/40-How-to-Let-Users-Update-Their-Form-Submissions-at-a-Later-Date

    The emailed link will allow users to return to their specific submission at any time to update their data.  Once the submission is updated, it will be replaced with the new data, rather than creating a new submission.

    1. Here in your Form 1 setup an Autoresponder email which has the link of Form 2 to continue the Form later.

    The link would look like this:

    https://form.jotform.com/truckersally/truckers-ally-driver-application?session={email}

    2. Then in this Form, you may use a page break to save the data.

    Hope this helps.
