    Can I save my form and fill it later?

    Asked by sophiearcand on November 19, 2015 at 11:58 AM


    Can we save the jotform ? Do we absolutely need to fill it online? We are using the form for a contest and some questions need time to be answered.

     The problem we have right now is that the people need to fill the form online. People would like to have the possibility to take their time to fill it and answer the questions and save the pdf. 

    Thanks for your answers.

    To do that Sophie, you should enable the Auto-Fill option in your form. This would allow you to save the data entered even if you go away from the form, so that you can submit it later on.

    You can see more about this here: How to Enable Auto Fill Feature

    However I am not quite sure what you mean in regards to "save the PDF"?

    I presume that you mean that you would like to download the PDF version of your form and then have it filled out and continued later?

    If that is true, then this would depend on the application that opens the PDF - to be able to offer you such feature. This is only possible through the online form.

    Once submitted however they could get the PDF or link to it so that they can save the same on their end - if that is what you meant?
