    I have set up a a "first form" and "main form" with session id so that my users can save their work and continue at a later date.  

    The first form is here https://form.jotform.com/91523770983162

    the main form is here https://form.jotform.com/91495063395162

    The problem I have is that my users are going to need to complete this form multiple times for different business processes.  How can I make it so that they have a unique session for each use of the form.  There is a field on the main form titled Process / Function Name that will be unique.  If I set that up in my 'First Form" to carry over to the "Main Form", will that keep the sessions unique? 


    THank you

    You need to ensure the session URL is unique so that user can use the same email address for multiple submission. Having Process / Function Name in the main form will not solve the issue as the session you are creating in first form when it is submitted.

    You need to add Process / Function Name in the first form and then pass it on to main form. Alternatively, you can add "Unique I" field in first form and add it in the session values. 

    Please take a look at the following cloned form where I have included the "Process / Function Name" in the session URL and see if it works as expected: https://form.jotform.com/91523993581971 

    Feel free to clone this form for a closer look. The following guide should help you in form cloning: https://www.jotform.com/help/42-How-to-Clone-an-Existing-Form-from-a-URL
