    Hello Lilli,

    If I understand your requirement correctly you want to allow your user to save the data before they can submit the form. Is that correct?

    Yes it is possible to achieve your requirement. There are two possible way to achieve this:

    1. Auto fill:  You can take advantage of our auto fill features which will save input data in a regular interval. Please be noted that it uses your browser cookies to store the data so you need to ensure that the cookies are not cleared and user uses the same browser. The following guide should help you :  http://www.jotform.com/help/227-How-to-Enable-Auto-Fill-Feature

    2. The another option is to save the user input in session. The following guide should help you achieve your requirement:  http://www.jotform.com/help/97-How-to-Save-Forms-to-Continue-Later

    Hope this helps.

    Do get back to us if you have any questions.

    Thank you!
