    How to use "Save and Continue Later" feature and jump to last page?

    Asked by HelpfulHolidays on July 05, 2016 at 08:35 AM


    I would like to use save and continue on a form - Not the browser storage version, with auto fill but the version, where I set a session variable passed in via a $_GET param

    I have disabled auto fill in the form preferences and pass in a unique session var.

    When I reload the page how do i got to the last page I completed?

    I can see you have only one form which is the one that you've shared with us https://form.jotform.com/52293475752967 

    To get the variable that is passed using the GET method you need to have another form, it is the first form where you ask your user for the email address, which is used to save the data, and other info that you need for your second form. 

    Once you have the email address you need to redirect to the second form, this is the main one and the form you shared seems to be this since it has page breaks, the tool that helps to save the data. 

    In the first form set a custom thank you page and redirect to the second form passing the session variable which is the email address so it should look like this: https://www.jotform.com/formID?session=support@jotform.com

    Here is a guide that will provide you with detailed info about this, please take a look and let us know if you have questions: How-to-Save-Forms-and-Continue-Later

    Sorry but i don't know why your talking about a second form!

    I have already said that I can access the form with $_GET vars

    i.e https://form.jotform.com/52293475752967?session=my_unique_identifyier

    There is no need for a second form in this instance.

    My question is how do i get it to go to the last page completed.



    Thank you.

    The feature "Save and Continue Later" using session needs to have two forms I believe. It is actually mentioned in this guide: https://www.jotform.com/help/97-How-to-Save-Forms-and-Continue-Later.

    Now I am not entirely sure how form 1 and form 2 works, but this feature was designed to have two forms for it to work properly. Please also note that this feature uses the "Next" and "Back" button to save the changes/inputs on each page. So I strongly suggest following the suggestion of my colleague and on the guide.

    However, if you would like to just jump to pages on load. Then perhaps you can just append this to your URL: ?jumpToPage=3

    That should allow you to jump to specific pages, just change the page number.

    Here's a sample of it: https://form.jotform.com/52293475752967?jumpToPage=5 

    I hope that helps.
