    How To Save and Continue Forms Later on an Embedded Website

    Asked by Strivetrips on February 20, 2015 at 12:09 PM

    Hi there,


    I am interested in using the "save and continue" method (outlined here: http://www.jotform.com/help/97-How-to-Save-Forms-to-Continue-Later) for a long application form that my students need to fill out. 


    I've been able to embed the first form (the registration which creates a unique session ID for the main form) into our website, but my question is whether it's possible to embed the actual "main form" into the website as well. 


    Right now, students can register on the embedded form on our website, but then to go to the actual application form, the unique ID takes them to a jotform URL. Is it possible to somehow do all this session ID stuff in an embedded form so that the students never leave our actual website?

    Hi Tyler,

    It's possible to use that method on an embedded form, but you will need to have a landing page where you will need to write PHP function to call it, and a custom like. Basically, we will send a POST Data to your PHP script to identify if it's a session or not. This will require more work in your part.

    I would suggest using the Auto-Fill feature instead, here is the guide on that: http://www.jotform.com/help/227-How-to-Enable-Auto-Fill-Feature. It is another method to save and continue the forms later without any technical setup.

    Do let us know if this works for you.

    Thank you.
