    Hi @charidy,

    There are a few things you can do to be able to save the data that has already been filled without the form being submitted.

    1. Enable AutoFill on your Forms.

    Enabling the AUTOFILL feature will automatically save the form's field values locally (browser local storage) for up to 24 hours. The saved local data is cleared when the form is submitted, or after the 24 hours from the form access time. This way, 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.

    2. The other is to set up your Form to  Save Forms and Continue later method is a more permanent option and will require additional steps when setting it up. This method requires two forms and a PAGE BREAK in order for it to work.
