    Can a user save their progress filling in the form and then start again at a later date?

    Asked by Andy  on March 20, 2015 at 06:13 AM

    We would like to create a form which will be attached to a website, that will allow users to fill in details, BUT, we need the ability to allow the user to save there progress and come back to it at a later date to continue to fill in the form before submission.

    Can this be done?

    We are currently using adobe forms which allows us to do this, but is becoming retired in June/July.

    Hi Andy,

    Yes, you can do that with our forms.

    There are two ways actually:

    How to Save Forms to Continue Later

    How to Enable Auto Fill Feature

    The first one creates a session for them and it can be accessed over any device as long as they have internet and they would be able to continue where they left off - until they submit.

    The other option is browser specific, but works in a similar manner.

    Both are great at what they do, but the first one requires forms with multiple pages and each page is saved as it is, while the second option gives them the option to stop at any field and move away from it - and then come back.

    We would be happy to help you set any of the two up and since you say that you are coming from Adobe there are few things that I would like to share with you:
