    is there a "save and continue later" feature that would allow a user to return to a lengthy form and complete it later?

    There are 2 ways on how you can do this:

    Method 1: You can easily enable the Auto Fill feature of the form by following this guide: http://www.jotform.com/help/227-How-to-Enable-Auto-Fill-Feature. The data is saved in your local browser, this means if multiple users are using the same computer and browser, the previous session might automatically prepopulate the form fields of the current session.

    Method 2: You can use session IDs to save the current progress on the form, but you need to make the form multipage. You can follow this guide: http://www.jotform.com/help/97-How-to-Save-Forms-to-Continue-Later?. The good thing about using session IDs is that your users can easily continue filling out the form on any computer, anywhere as long as they have the session link. 

     

    I personally prefer method 2 in your case. Let us know if that helps.
