    I want to build a case submission form, in which the user fills some information. I want to give the users the flexibility to keep multiple cases open as drafts without submitting them. So I need an option to save the form data and populate the form using that data programmatically. Is this possible in Jotform?

    Hi,

    You can use the save and continue later option but it doesn't allow multiple sessions of the same form for a logged-in user.

    You may consider having an initial form to open a case and prefilling other forms from that form using our prefill option.

    Please let us know if you require any further assistance.

    Hi, can I capture the form data locally using JavaScript, on every answer user submits and use this data to prefill the form programmatically when the user visits the form again?

    Hello,

    Due to security purposes, it is not possible to add JavaScript to your form. However, you can consider retrieving your form Source Code, embedding it to your website, and adding your custom JavaScript instead.
