Do forms autosave?

    Hi!

    I'm looking to switch form management systems for a client. They have a long and fairly involved questionnaire, and would like to have all the questions on a single page (instead of using the card form, which brings you through the questionnaire one field at a time).

    Our current form system does not autosave responses, so if the web page times out or refreshes, all their answers are lost and the client has to refill the entire form all over again.

    Do Jotform forms autosave responses in case someone accidentally leaves the page so they can pick up where they left off? Or will the form reset and erase all responses?

    Hi, thank you for contacting Jotform support.

    Yes, we have a feature that can save session data and continue at a later date. We have two methods:

    1. Auto Fill Feature: http://www.jotform.com/help/227-How-to-Enable-Auto-Fill-Feature. This works on the same computer and browser.

    2. Session URL method: http://www.jotform.com/help/97-How-to-Save-Forms-to-Continue-Later. This is useful for saving data and continue at a later date using another browser and computer.

    I hope this helps. Let us know if you have any further questions.

    Thanks.
