    edit_link with Auto-fill: Session ID being ignored if on the same computer.

    Asked by scopa02 on September 30, 2014 at 11:46 AM

    edit_link data overlap: same form, same computer, 2 different session ID's

    It appears that session ID is being ignored if the form is on the same computer. Started two forms. After partially filling out one (without submit) followed the second edit_link, second form recovered first forms answers.

    Hello scopa02,

    I believe there seems to be some confusion here. You have trying to mix up two features together (auto fill and Save form to continue later). 

    I did check your form and it seems you have enabled the "Auto Fill" settings. Please be noted that auto fill feature saves the input data in the browser's cookies. That is the reason why you see the same input data. 

    Actually, the input data is not being saved in the session at all. The reason why it is not saving the data in session because your form does not have any "Page break" field. If you check this guide, its clearly mentioned that for the "Save form to continue later" feature it requires the page break field to be added. The input data is saved in the session only at the click of next button.

    I would suggest you to disable the auto fill setting and add the "Page Break" field instead and I believe that should solve this problem/

    Hope this helps.

    Do get back to us if you have any questions.

    Thank you!
