    How can enable multiple submissions so data does not have to be re-entered?

    Asked by mklausner on March 31, 2014 at 10:45 AM

    Our form: http://www.jotform.com//?formID=40225849949164 enables one submission for a donation at a time. Is there a way to allow someone who wants to do multiple submissions but does not want to re-entering similar data, i.e. name, address, email, etc. to have an option like "Donate Again" and then go to another form where most of the required data is already pre-filled? Also, if it is possible to do this, how do we ensure that the initial data is submitted? Where's the best place to initiate a new submission, at the end of the form, or after the first submission has been made by making a link to a new form?

    Hi,

    Our autofill feature can do that. Check this guide: How to Enable Auto Fill Feature. Make sure that you choose an option for the "Time To Live" from the settings:

     

    With this option, you can submit to the form and get back to it without the need to re-enter the data that has been submitted.

     

    Kind check and let us know if you have any questions.

    Thanks

    By the way, if that won't work for you, you can use our workaround such as prepopulating your form. Reference guide here: Prepopulating Form Fields via URL Parameters

    We can explain this if you want this method.

    Thanks
