    Hello,

    Is there a feature on JotForms that lets me see and retrieve the answers/data even if the submit button has not been clicked?

    What I mean is the following:

    Suppose my survey is too long, and I am afraid that the users will get tired in the middle of it and stop filling it. In this case, is there a way for me to retrieve the data they have filled so far, even if they did not submit the full survey?

    Your help is very much appreciated,

    Thank you!

    Sorry, but you will only be able to view the answers/responses in your forms, once your users have actually Submitted the form. 

    If you feel that the form is lengthy and users may not fill it in one go, you can enable the Save and Continue Later feature in your form, so that users can fill the form, save and continue filling at a later time or date. But in this case, too, you will be able to view the answers/responses once the users have actually submitted the form.

    You can also enable auto fill in your form, so that when your users don't lose any single data if they accidentally close or reload their browser while filling out the form. Please note that your users need to use the same browser in order for the saved field values to autofill in the form.
