    Can a user of the form "save" and continue later?

    Asked by happycamper777 on January 27, 2016 at 12:28 PM

    We have a rather lengthy staff application.  Could the user "save" at a point and continue filling it out later?

    Yes, it is possible for your users to save and continue forms at a later time.

    First: How-to-Enable-Auto-Fill-Feature

    The Auto-Fill method is based on browser's local storage. The data is stored in your user's browser storage. The user would still be able to view the data he/she entered on the form even after closing the browser as long as he/she uses the same browser and didn't clear any data from the browser. This is often useful when users accidentally close the form.

    Second: How-to-Save-Forms-and-Continue-Later

    Or also known as The Session Method. With this method, you will need to use two forms: One form will be used to generate/create a session and the second form is the Main(Primary) form. The user will still be able to access previously entered data on the Main form on any browser as long as he/she uses the same link provided to him/her.
