    is there a way that the form could be opened and closed say over a week and then submitted,

    this form will be used for date collection and it would be handy if the form could be filled out say on day one then saved and closed opened again on day 2 closed and so on. By doing this it would save time transfering data from a hard copy to the form.  basically we would be filling out the form throughout a week.

    It is possible to achieve this, the catch however is that the form data is saved on your browser by using cookies and stored sessions.

    So next time you want to resume you will have to use that exact browser on that machine, also you can lose you data if you clear the browser data  and using data clearing tools such as Ccleaner.

    To set the form resume capability

    Goto Setup&Embed -> Preferences > Advanced Settings [Continue Forms Later]

    Click on the 'Edit Auto Fill Settings' a new dialog will open where you can define your preferences.
