    Save button at the end of each page for submitters to save the data

    Asked by narellebarnes on March 19, 2015 at 12:17 AM

    I am working on a form with multiple pages (20). When I send this out it needs a save button at the end of each page. Is this possible?

    As it is going to be quite large, none of the recipients will complete it all in one go, in fact it could take many attempts until it will be complete. I have read through http://www.jotform.com/help/97-How-to-Save-Forms-to-Continue-Later and it really is a bit fiddly, and not that professional. Is there any other way?

    Hi,

    If you want users to save the data and come back to it at a later date and using a new device and browser, then we recommend the Session URL method (the guide in your post).

    Otherwise, you can use our Autofill feature: https://www.jotform.com/help/227-How-to-Enable-Auto-Fill-Feature. But since you have a long form, saving data using this method will likely cause the user's browser to hang up so when enabling this, I would recommend choosing 10 or 15 seconds:

    Thank you!

    I am also wondering if there is another option other than a submit button at the end that will save the users responses.  With multiple pages, can you add a "save" - submit button to each page?
