    How to allow applicants to save information of incomplete application?

    Asked by Doreen on February 11, 2016 at 01:10 PM

    We have an application form and wanted to know how to set up so if people cannot complete it in one sitting.. that they

    can save and get an email of incomplete application

    be able to click on a link that is available later by expiration date to complete.


    We need the applicants to be able to go back in the same application to complete and then get an email stating the application submission was successful

    I think you are looking for Auto-Fill feature to enable on your JotForm. This feature enables to save the information filled on the form to the browser storage so that the user can continue it later. Please be noted that this feature works only when the form is re-opened on the same browser using the same device. 

    You may set the expiration date to the form from the Form Preferences. 

    Please refer to the guide below that can help you in setting the expiration date to the form.


    Hope this information helps! Please get back to us if you need any further assistance. We will be happy to help.
