Feature Request - Auto-saving option for 1 or 2 minutes

    Hello all,

    Due to the size and complexity of my form, I have noticed serious lag on certain devices when I am using the 'auto-save' option.

    This affects lower-powered devices (Galaxy S3) more so than other devices (iPad).

    I currently have my form set to auto-save at the lowest (or highest) possible frequency, but this is 30 seconds - this means that for phone users every 30 seconds the form will freeze for ~10 seconds which is obviously frustrating.

    Is it possible to improve performance by only auto-saving every minute or two? I only have options ranging up to every 30 seconds.


    Saving upon completion of each field is even worse sadly!

    Unfortunately, as of right now those are the only options we currently offer for the saving feature.

    I believe our developers felt strongly that the options you see were a good margin to prevent errors in the auto-save feature. Anything outside that window such as a longer timeframe would be a risk of not being saved which is why it is set up to save data so often.

    However, contrary to that fact I have sent this as a request on your behalf to our developers. If it is deemed feasible then we'll implement it and update you later on.
