Is it possible to have a link to send the user for saving the form?

    No, no, and no.

    From a human interface design standpoint, this is just silly. I want an option of simply adding a "Save" link, and when the user clicks that, a popup window asks for their e-mail address and then e-mails them the link to continue.

    It doesn't need to be this complicated.

    Unfortunately that is not possible to achieve. If you want to use save form to continue later (Session method), you will need to use two forms, one for session generation and second as primary.

    Other possible option is to Enable Auto Fill feature on your form. Auto-Fill feature will allow to save entered data without having to apply the Save and Continue Later workaround.

    However Auto fill method is based on browser local storage. It is saving the form data on users browser, so user can open the form later and he/she will see the past data. Note - user will need to use same device and browser to access data.

    Hope this will help. Let us know if you need further assistance.
