    Also, is there a way to fill out a form partially and then come back to it later even after you have closed out of Jotform? 


    For example: I'm doing an employee review form and have it half way done and decide I want finish filling it out later, so I log back in and complete the form. Another example would be, I complete the form and sign and then save, when I do the review with the employee, I reopen the form and then have them sign the form to complete the review process.

    That can be achieved by any of the following feature. Which ever you prefer.

    1. Save data through Session Parameter. This will save the data on the Jotform server so it is accessible anywhere, using different browsers or machine as long as the session parameter is on the form URL. 

    2. Save data through Browser Local Storage (Autofill). This will save the data on the local browser storage which means that the data is only accessible when you use the same browser/computer where you have left of your form before you can continue filling out the form. This requires less configuration though unlike the session parameter.

    Hope this helps!
