    If you are asking about ability to continue filling out a form that was partially filled out before, we have two main ways to achieve that:

    1. https://www.jotform.com/help/227-How-to-Enable-Auto-Fill-Feature

    Method linked above is easy to set up, and will automatically store a cookie with all the partially entered data into the user's browser, so that the user can continue filling out the form at a later date as long as they are still using the same browser and did not clear those cookies.

    The above method is seamless and simple to set up, but it depends on the user using the exact same browser in order to continue filling out their information.

    2. https://www.jotform.com/help/97-how-to-save-forms-to-continue-later

    Second method works across browsers and devices, because partially entered data is saved directly on our servers, so your users can come back to fill out the form from any other device or browser they want.

    The downside of the second method is that you will need to use two forms. First form will be where you will collect the email address of the user in order to create their session on the second form (so that they can come back and continue their form filling session). Second form will be your actual form that they will be able to continue filling out at a later date.

    Please take a look at the guides linked above, and let us know if you need any further clarifications or assistance, we will be happy to help.
