    How can I save the form for return to later to complete?

    Asked by lessman67 on March 06, 2015 at 02:19 PM

    Please tell me that you have done the 'back-end' programming so that all the user (me) doesn't have to do all the steps to set up two forms, and re-direct the URL etc....it is so complicated!!

    I just moved over from adobe forms central and the idea of the 'save' button is essential...really necessary for me..but all the backend workaround seems like there could be a way the coded can be done at your end?  please tell me that you have and will do this very soon!

    its a lot of work,

    I believe you are referring to this guide:


    This is currently the only method to fully allow your users to save their form data and continue at a later time.

    You can allow for your users form data to be saved for a limited amount of time in their browser data:


    However if their browser cache/cookies are clear, their entries will also be cleared.  The first solution is a permanent solution to allow users to update their submissions, the second is temporary.

    If you need any help with either, let us know and we will be happy to assist you with whatever you need.
