    We are looking into subscribing to your service, but what we need is to have the opportunity for a user to start filling out a form and then stop and come back to it a few days later. Is that possible? If so, how?

    Hi,

    Yes, that is possible, we have 2 methods that you can use:

    Using the Auto Fill Feature:

    Using the Sessions which will depend on the email of your user:

    You just need to choose one of them. The difference is that, if you are using the Auto Fill Feature and your users are using the same computer, IP or in the local network, this might cause some problem. I would recommend the 2nd one personally.

    I hope this helps.

    Thank you.

    Be careful with the Auto Fill.  It will not save data if you use some of the widgets.
