    Thank you for contacting us.

    We have the following 'save and continue later' options available:

    1. An Autofill option that is saving the data locally in a user's browser storage. It means that the form user will need to use the same browser to see their saved data.

    How to Enable Auto Fill Feature

    You can configure the Autofill option to store the data for up to 4 weeks.

    2. A session based save and continue later method. It is saving the data on our servers in a session format, so the session can be accessed from any place. That method requires two forms.

    How to Save Forms to Continue Later

    Sessions older than 3 months might be cleared from our servers.

    3. A form Submission Edit link. The form users can use it in order to edit submitted entries, so this is more like submit and edit later than save and continue later.

    How to Let Users Update Their Form Submissions at a Later Date

    Submission can be edited at any time, unless it is deleted from the system.

    Note, the 1st and the 2nd methods are not compatible between each other. You can use only one of them on a particular form.

    Please feel free to contact us if you need any further assistance.
