    Yes, we offer this ability.

    There are two methods to achieve this goal, depending on what you are looking for.

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

    This method will allow you co save a partially completed form, and continue later on from any browser or device. For example, you can start filling out the form on your desktop PC in Firefox, and continue later on a mobile phone in Chrome.

    It requires that your form be a multi-page form, and all the partially completed data would be sent to our servers - so that users can continue filling out the rest of the data from any other device.

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

    The auto-fill feature saves the data in the local storage (cookies) of the browser that the user is currently using. This method doesn't require that your form has multiple pages, and it is seamless to the user - they don't need to follow any special links.

    However, this method is tied to a single browser and device. If a user starts filling it out at their work computer, they can only continue the auto-filled form at work, in the same browser. This data is also removed when the user clears their cookies.

    Please let us know if you need further help or assistance with this, or kindly open a new thread for any other questions you may have, we will be happy to assist you.
