    Yes Brenda, they can.

    There are actually 2 ways to do this:

    1st - by using Auto-Fill feature

    How to Enable Auto Fill Feature

    2nd - by using email sessions

    How to Save Forms to Continue Later

    Each has its pros and cons, so I will try to go over them in a short manner so you can see the overall of both:

    Pros:

    * Auto-fill feature *

      - Easy to set up

      - good for small and medium forms

      - continues on the last field an entry was made

    * Email Session *

       - saved on our server so it is possible to continue from any device

       - great for long forms

       - does not slow down form

    Cons:

    * Auto-fill feature *

      - Bad on long forms

      - can only be continued from the same browser

      - if user clears form data and cache of his browser, the form can not be continued

    * Email Session *

       - requires 2 submissions to work (in place of one submission)

       - can only be used when multiple pages are present on the form

       - saves data per page (not per field)

    The guides above will give you a bit more details in regards to this, but we are also here to answer any questions that you might have, so do let us know if any :)
