    Yes, that's possible with Jotform. You can either use the following methods:

    1. Using our built in feature: How to Enable Auto Fill Feature. Note that this method only works with the same computer someone has used to fill out the form. They cannot continue using another computer. The data will be stored to the user's browser. Also, you should advice users not to clear the browsers data (cache and cookies), otherwise, the data will be lost. 

    2. Using our workaround, session URL: How to Save Forms to Continue Later. Opposite function, you can use this anywhere you want. For as long as you have the parameters on the access URL, you can retrieve the data and continue.

    Important: Both of the above solutions would only work if you will not submit the form.

    If you'd like someone to submit the form and complete it later on, you can use the Edit Function:

    Create an autoresponder email and add this to the email body: Setting Up Form Autoresponder.
