    Thanks for the quick response.  I was actully talking about from the customer perspective (sorry that I didn't make that more clear).  We use the form to gather a ton of information from our customers and I'm wondering if there is way for them to save the form mid completion to come back to it later on and finsh up entering their content.

    Actually the guide I gave you can be helpful for your needs. You just need to Enable the feature and all the settings must look this way:

    Then they Just need to save the link of the form, and continue filling it out in the time frame of 4 weeks as limit.
    However, note that autofill feature will only work on the same machine and browser. Let says if the user uses his PC with Firefox browser while filling in the form then closes the browser and decided to continue it later, he needs to open it on the same computer and the same browser in order to autofill his saved data to the form.
