    If you are using the form on the same device browser, you can enable "Allow Browser AutoComplete" to do that. Next time you access the form on the same browser when you click inside a field, the autocomplete options will show up and you will just have to select them to fill the form.

    SETTINGS > FORM SETTINGS>SHOW MORE OPTIONS> Allow Browser AutoComplete>Yes.  

    It will perform like on the clip below.-

    OK, I confirmed this was to yes, but the form failed to retain the Submitted Data.      I then turned it to no, then back to yes, and the form still failed to retain the Submitted Data after being submitted.     Last week the form retained the Submitted Data after submission, but now it doesn't so something was edited from Friday to Monday.       Let me know what else we can try to keep the Submitted Data on the form after submission.

    I just tested a clone of your form, and the autocomplete function worked. The data aren't saved on our server or the form, but your web browser when "Allow Browser AutoComplete" is set to yes. It is therefore browser dependent, and won't work if you cleared your browser caches, fill out the form on incognito mode, etc. 

    Here is how it's supposed to behave. 

    If we failed to understand what you need, kindly get back to us with a more details description of what you would like to achieve, we will be glad to help you.

    ok,   I still have the same issue.    Please press the 'Submit' button, then use the back button and see if you have all the data still on the form.     You are referring to field data when I need the entire form to retain the data after submission.

    The other option is is to generate an auto-fill link and redirect the thank you page to that link that will open reopen the form with the data captured during the submission. Kindly refer to this guide for instructions.- How-to-Pre-Populate-the-Same-Form-with-Data-from-a-Previous-Submission
