    Hello KidsAquatic,

    Yes it is possible to achieve your requirement. There are multiple options available to save form input data and continue later:

    1. Auto fill:  You can enable auto fill setting of your form which will save the form input data every few seconds. Please be noted that this feature saves the data in browser cookie. If the browser cache is cleared or another browser is used to access your form, it will not populate the form field. The following guide should help you:  http://www.jotform.com/help/227-How-to-Enable-Auto-Fill-Feature 

    2. You can also save the input data in session on server. This feature will ensure that the saved data is accessible in any browser or system. The following guide should help you:  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!
