    Do you have a feature that allows people to Save the form as they go?

    Hello, The idea would be that someone might fill in a form over several days and need to log-in and save periodically.Thanks!

    Hi Christine,

    Yes, we do have a feature that makes this possible. This can be done by saving form session when the user clicks the Next button (as in a page break).

    For more detailed information as to how this can be achieved, please visit the link below:

    How to Save Forms to Continue Later

    We hope you find that solution useful. Should you have other questions about that guide, kindly let us know.

    Thank you very much for taking interest in our service!

    Ummm... I took a look at the Page Break function, but all I see is Next and Back? There doesn't appear to be a Save and go to Next Page option. I was looking at the article "How to Save forms to continue later", and while I see the Save and go to Next Page button in the article, I don't see how to access that in the app? Am I missing something?

     

    Thanks again!

    P.S. Loving this service & the support!

    Hi trinityavatar,

    It is correct that when you normally look at the page break function it has the back and next buttons. But on the article How to Save Forms to Continue Later the buttons' names are changed to show the user who fills out the form that the buttons function is to save that form. So it is just a visual thing. The tricks lies in applying the steps on the article above.

    To change the names of the buttons, select the page break form, and on the top toolbar change the text of the back or next buttons.

    Hope this was helpful and if you have any other questions that troubles your mind please ask :)

    OK... this is pretty cool... I've got it working pretty well! I'm able to Save and go on to the next page.

    Only thing that's not clear to me is this: the link that gets sent to my email (as described in step 10 of the above mentioned article) only appears to take me back to a blank form on your site. Here's the tricky bit, I'm running this form from an iFrame on my site, but the link goes back to your site... additionally, it's not kept what I've filled in, only returned me to a blank form... any thoughts?

     

    Thanks a bunch!

    We have switched to cloudflare to prevent another DDoS attack. Maybe that caused the troubles in your form. I recommend you to start over and create a new form just in case to get a fresh & stable working form because of the server change. I know it is frustrating to do the steps over again but that looks like the best solution for now. After you try the new form on your site could you please notify us?

    Thank You
