    Is it possible for Applicants to fill out part of form and complete it later?

    Asked by leemaize on October 27, 2014 at 02:32 PM

    If I put an Application online, is it possible for Applicants to fill out part of it leave/sign - out and then come back later, maybe multiple times?

    Just need to know if people can come back multiple times to complete a form?

    continue later complete later

    Yes, this is possible to save the form data in order to continue later, there are three options:

    1. An Autofill option that is saving the data locally in a user's browser storage. It means that the form user will need to use the same browser to see their saved data.

    2. A session based save and continue later method. It is saving the data on our servers in a session format, so that the session can be accessed from any place with a special session link. That method requires two forms.

    3. A form Submission Edit link. The form users can use it in order to edit submitted entries, so this is more like submit and edit later than save and continue later.

    Note, the 1st and the 2nd methods are not compatible between each other, so you can use only one of them on a particular form.
