    Saving once a survey is started?

    Asked by mewersmann on February 07, 2014 at 11:59 AM

    To whom it concerns,


    Is it possible to save a survey once it has been started but not completed? We have a lengthy form and not all of the answers can be filled out at once. So, we were hoping to start the survey, save the questions that have been completed, then complete the rest of the survey at a later date. Thanks for any thoughts or help that you can offer.

    Hello Mark,

    There are two ways of which this can be achieved.

    1.  Using sessions to save the partially filled form and accessing it from any device or browser. This workaround will require a pseudo-registration proces. Your form must also have page breaks to act as the save buttons.

    Check out this article for more information:

    2.  Setting your form to auto-save data as it is being filled. Although this method is simpler, its main disadvantage is that saving is browser-based, which means the saved data cannot be accessed from any other browser or device.

    Enabling the auto-fill feature

    Hope you find these useful. Please do inform us should you need further assistance. Cheers!
