    Hi gouldca,

    The save and continue method is meant to save the session when a user has been filling out a form and has not yet submitted it.

    When the page break is applied, the session is saved for each page that has been completed and the next button has been selected.

    The edit_link option, is for when your user has submitted the form and would like to make edits to the information entered in the form..

    We recommend this option when you have a long form.

    I hope this information has been helpful. Please feel free to contact us if you need further assistance.
