    Submitting data once internet connection is established again

    Asked by davidyouhas on November 25, 2014 at 08:42 AM
    Sometimes we are in locations with our iPads and no internet. Is there a
    way to have the forms offline, that can be sent when wifi is available?

    Hello davidyouhas,

    Yes it is possible to achieve your requirement if your form is opened in the browser.

    You should take a look at our "Auto Fill" feature. This will save the input data in browser cookie every few seconds. Once you have the internet connectivity, you can load the form again and then click on the submit button of your form. The following guide should help you:  http://www.jotform.com/help/227-How-to-Enable-Auto-Fill-Feature 

    Please be noted that since auto fill saves the data in browser, if the cache/cookies is cleared of your browser the saved input data will also be cleared.

    Hope this helps.

    Do get back to us if you have any questions.

    Thank you!

    Thanks for the reply.
    Maybe I need another solution. Sometimes, we need to work offline with several elevators. Internet may not return. I see that I can create a pdf but how do I make an edible image/pdf form? That would work. Thanks.
