    How to Save partial responses in JotForm

    Asked by lessman67 on April 07, 2015 at 08:40 PM



    I am new to jot form and came from adobe forms central.  

    every few months I need to collect responses from some very long forms - 360 evaluations from 25 people up 4 respondents - around 100 responses. 


    I very much need for the respondents to be able to save partial responses and come back to their work.  Sadly I have invested hours into trying to get this to work but haven't had any luck!  


    What I really really really would love to have is not a work around but a 'save button' please? 

    I was a paid subscriber with adobe forms and noticed I don't qualify for the needs for a paid account, please add a save button. or please help me - how can I make this work around work?  what am I doing wrong?  here are both form URL's

    http://www.jotform.com//?formID=50648981344261  first form 


    http://www.jotform.com//?formID=50647786054261 main form

    You can achieve this by 2 methods. Here are the user guides

    1. -How-to-Enable-Auto-Fill-Feature

    You can enable the feature on the form 



    2. -How-to-Save-Forms-to-Continue-Later

    the 2nd option is the older method that some users still preferred using

    It uses a session email link that allows the saving of data on the browser. The end-user will be able to continue using the form on any computer as long as they uses the original email session link


    Hope this help. Let us know if you need more assistance.
