    Save and Submit Later

    Asked by mcbrome on January 09, 2012 at 04:47 PM

    I've reviewed some of the forums and help topics.  I can where it can be set up to a user submit a form, and provide a link to come back and update the information/form.  

    While similar, is there a means to have some a user enter information into the fields, and save, but NOT submit.  The user can then come back and submit at a later date.  In that regard, they would need user and pw.


    Second question is whether or not someone can submit an essay or abstract usually limited to 250 words.  Can the text fields support that amount of information? Conversely, can we limit a text field by characters/words?
