    Hi,

    Unfortunately this is not possible.  There is no way to retrieve a specific users form data and use that to prepopulate some of the information on your jotform.  Since  we have no way of identifying the user currently using the form beyond session data, there is no way to apply saved data to the form.

    You allow for users to save a form and continue filling it out or editing it later:

    But that is about the limits of prepopulation for return users.

    Let us know if you have any further questions and we will be happy to help.
