    The answer to that is both yes and no. We support two main methods for storing your partially completed form, so that you or your users can finish filling it out later.

    1. You can Save forms to continue later, which may be slightly harder to set up then the second method. This method requires 2 forms, one form where your users will be given their session link for the second form, and the second form which would be the main form.

    The main form needs to be a multi-page form with Page Breaks. The benefit of this method is that partially completed data is stored on our servers, which means that you can start filling out your form in one browser on one machine, and continue filling it in another browser on another device.

    2. You can also Enable Auto Fill Feature, which is very easy to set up and has no special requirements. The drawback of this method is that all partially completed data is stored in your user's local browser storage (cookies), which makes it exceptionally fast and easy to set up. Unfortunately, this means that partially completed data can be auto filled only on the same browser, on the same machine, if your users haven't erased browser cookies in the mean time.

    Auto Fill is very useful on long forms, where you want to be sure that your users can continue filling out their form even if they have accidentally closed their browser tab.

    I hope this helps. Please let us know if you need any clarifications regarding this, and please take a look at the guides linked for both of these methods. Thank you.
