Is there a way of keeping a user's selections on the form selected if they leave the page, so that if they return to the form they return to their part-filled in form. I think I've seen it done before, is it something to do with cookies in a session in the js?
It's just in case a user decides to browse the site further whilst having already filled in part of their form - would be a bit annoying if they had to do it all again on their return.
Any help on this would be most appreciated.

We have a solution in place for this - http://www.jotform.com/help/97-How-to-Save-Forms-to-Continue-Later
However, it only works for forms with page breaks. The page break buttons trigger the saving of the partially entered information to a "session".
Also, I personally have not tested if it would work in a form embedded using full source code. You are free to test it for yourself. We'd love to hear how it works for you.

The solution is great for another form I have, but I was hoping for something far more simple than that. I found something called jstorage which is the kind of thing I'm after, but I have no idea how to implement it. Have you heard of it, and if so any ideas how I could use it?

Sadly, I have no idea how it works or how to use it.
