    Generally, the fields are populated to the form using URL parameter method.

    https://www.jotform.com/help/71-Prepopulating-Fields-to-Your-JotForm-via-URL-Parameters

    Each time the URL is opened, the values set in the URL parameter shall be displayed in the respective fields of the form. I personally don't think it is necessary to save the prepopulated data since they are being filled when the form is loaded anyway. 

    If you want to save the data on the form and referring to access the same form again, you may enable the Auto-fill option in the form settings. However, the saved form data shall only be displayed even the form is populated with some URL data. Please note that the feature allows saving the form filled information in the browser storage. So, the data can be accessed only when the form is opened on the same computer and same browser. Also, if the browser storage/cache is cleared, the form data will be lost.

    Thanks!
