    Wanting way to allow users to complete forms faster by reusing form data they have previously submitted

    Asked by IOH on August 14, 2014 at 11:55 PM

    We have users using a form regularly and part of the information will be the same each time for each user. Is there a way to implement a cookie, login or similar so they can autocomplete these fields with the data they have previously used?

    eg. Name, Company, Address etc.

    Also whether it is possible to have secondary fields in groups to allow for a list of autocomplete options. User would have a drop down of their past entries (able to delete them if incorrect) and then select which one they want if reusing it.

    eg. Sub-Contractor, Address, Phone

    Hello IOH,

    We do have browser auto fill setting which will save the input data in browser but it will be cleared as soon as the form is submitted. The following guide should help you:  http://www.jotform.com/help/227-How-to-Enable-Auto-Fill-Feature 

    You may also like to take a look at the our "Auto Complete" and see if that helps you. It will give you suggestion as you type in to the field. User will be able to select from the list but it will not allow you to delete or save a new one. It will only be possible from the form builder.

    The browser also has a auto fill property but we cannot enforce it to save or disable the saving of input data. Please check the following support thread for google chrome:  https://support.google.com/chrome/answer/142893?hl=en Similarly you have auto fill for all browsers.

    Hope this answers your query.

    Do get back to us if you have any questions.

    Thank you!
