Progress Bar widget not working properly with Sessions

    Hi, I've noticed a minor issue with this. On the demo of this, the percent complete progress bar doesn't show an accurate reading when you go back in using the edit url link that you are redirected to upon submission. It just says 0% complete at the top of every page. Any chance this can be fixed?

    You are right, it appears that the Progress Bar widget is not currently working properly with the session based links.

    We have added a bug report ticket about this issue to our system. This thread will be updated once the issue is fixed.

    Thank you.

    Do you have any estimate on when it might be fixed? I'm contemplating using Jotform for a time-sensitive project at work that needs users to be able to pick up where they left off if the form is not completed in one sitting.

    P.S. I'm the same person as the person who initially asked the question. I have multiple accounts for different websites I service, and logged in as DecadeOfDifference before posting the above answer, but for some reason it listed the post as coming from HCOE, which is weird.

    Unfortunately, there is no ETA, but the bug report ticket has been already assigned to one of our developers and marked as important.

    At this time the progress bar widget is being triggered upon changes, so the form user will need to edit/enter any data on form.

    The progress bar will now work as expected with session based forms, 

    For example:

    The progress bar will read which fields have been previously filled out - and it will provide feedback on the pending progress. 

    Kindly check and provide feedback
