    Hello Juan,

    You would make edits on JotForm, not in WordPress, and they'll automatically show up on your form page in WordPress.

    Does this answer your question? If not, please clarify so I can help.

    The form builder now has a better support for this feature. Go to the preferences section of the builder and select advanced setting and then set the save for later feature (or whatever it is called) to 1 second delay. This will eliminate the need of JavaScript if it is instantaneous it will use the a js event.

    My iPad is acting up so I can't give you set by step but try to figure it out.

    You can now Save the form and continue later using the advance feature in the form builder. Just enable this and then re-embed the form using the Wordpress embed script or plugin.

    Use the visual guide below to enable it.

    Hope this help. Inform us in you need further assistance.

    One more thing is it possible to continue later on a different computer or iDevice??? in this case the customer will use the same "user" and "password" from WordPress to continue filling ther form.

    Unfortunately, upload field isn't yet supported. It is also not possible to continue it on other devices and browsers from where you've started filling the form. You should use the same device and browser to be able to get the previously saved field data on the form.

    However, "How to Save Forms to Continue Later" does since data is temporarily saved on the server. Kindly review the guide to get it working. Note that you have to use two different forms to achieved that. The first form should be embedded on your wordpress while the 2nd (main) form should not be embedded since you have to used your main form's URL as your 1st form's thank you page. That's explained on that guide. 

    Feel free to let us know if you still have any difficulties with the guide. Thank you!

    That is by session URL submitted from your First form - the email from the first form does the flow.

    Please kindly review the guide - it is explain there :)
