    Hello! I understand what you're trying to achieve with having an option for visitors to exit out of the form then return to your website (or the previous page). Although we don't have that kind of innate option/feature, this is something doable by using either the Feedback or Lightbox embed methods.

    1. Feedback Button https://www.jotform.com/help/93-Creating-a-Feedback-Button 

    2. Lightbox Method https://www.jotform.com/help/220-How-to-create-a-lightbox-form 

    Both these methods will show your form in a modal dialog. This means that the form will be shown on top of your website (upon clicking a link/button) and if a user decides or wants to exit out of the form, all they have to do is close the modal popup and they will be back to that same page where they launched it.

    Please give it a try and let us know if this fits your requirements.
