    Hello,

    I activated the "Continue Forms Later" option but it seams it does not work,
    when I add the "?session=[name]" it does not fill in the forms I added minutes ago

    http://form.jotformeu.com/form/50743959797375?session=Tiger

    would be cool if you could support me on this

     

    Thank you in advance
    Christian

    I took a look at your jotform Christian, but it seems to be working properly for me.

    You can see this by going to the link above: http://form.jotformeu.com/form/50743959797375?session=Tiger

    You will see "test" being typed for you.

    The way this session works is that it will save all entered data on when page next / previous buttons get clicked on.

    So you will not get the data saved as you add it on the page - only the page data when you switch to a new page, which is why I think you were under the impression that it is not working properly.

    Please note that there is also another feature to save the data as you add it, but unlike the sessions, it is only possible to continue the form on the same browser for a specified amount of time.

    How to Enable Auto Fill Feature

    The one that you have added is however great since it allows you to have the form accessible from any device or browser until the submit is created.
