    Asked by formazioneasllecce on May 02, 2013 at 10:18 AM

    I have to create a form that allows:
    1) enrollment in a course
    2) then go back on the same form to enter the payment details
    3) close the form in a definitive manner, not allowing anyone to edit.

    I have already consulted the forum, but I did not understand the procedure to be used.
    You can help me.

    Thank you.

    Hi Paul,

    Good day! We have a guide to Save Form to Continue Later.

    This one: How to Enable Auto Fill Feature | Save Form Entries to Continue Later - Built-in function that works on the same computer.

    Another one: http://www.jotform.com/help/97-How-to-Save-Forms-to-Continue-Later - Uses a custom workaround but works when you are on a different computer.

    Basically, both of this works if you only decided to continue later. This will not work if you have just submit the data on it or click "submit" button.

    You are welcome.

    Yes, you have to create two (2) forms. One to capture the email address of the submitter. Two is to capture and save the whole data entered to the form so they can continue later.


    What do you mean by the ID field? Do you mean the Email Address field tag? Example: {email} - like this?

    You can have this one to your Form Notification Settings;

    1. Setup and Embed

    2. Email Alerts

    3. Click the notification after you click "Email Alerts" button

    4. Find the Tag for the Email:

    Note that Email Tag is completely different so please make sure to check that you have the right tag.

    I try to be clearer. (Machine translation)

    In place of the email I can use another field, ex. Submission ID.?

    The same person, with the same email, it could in fact fill out the same form multiple times.

    I am not sure if I get what you meant but do you mean instead on adding {email} inline with E-mail you want to have {submissionid} instead? if that is what you meant the yes, it is possible. You just have to select the field you want to input by selecting the field under Form Fields.

    Hope this helps.

    Thank you.
