    Can someone filling out a jotform save their progress and return to it later?

    Asked by Laurel  on February 17, 2015 at 03:43 PM

    We are looking for an online form site to create registration forms for our afternoon classes. The forms are rather lengthy, and require the user to look up information they probably don't know off the top of their heads. They are likely to be interrupted before they finish and will not be happy if they have to start all over again if that happens.

    With JotForm Builder Laurel, almost everything is possible :)

    We had people design entire website in our form builder, but that is another story.

    We actually have 2 different features that will help you do this each having its own purpose.

    1st option is to have data stored on our server until the submission is finally made. This is based on having 2 jotforms (so 2 submissions are needed for this to work), but the data lasts for a very long time and can be accessed from any device using the special (and simple) URL.

    2nd option is to have data stored on users browser, which does not requite pages on your jotform nor anything other than a simple setup on your jotform how often the data would need to be saved.

    The only downside of this approach is that for very long forms this can be a tad slower (depending on the users machine) and can only be continued over the same browser.

    Do let us know which option you go for especially if you have any difficulties setting it up, but also feel free to ask us any questions that you might have before or while setting up your jotform. :)
