    Can I pause form progress and finish filling out later while other submissions are made?

    Asked by mintdentistry on July 26, 2016 at 03:41 PM


    I was wondering if there is a way for someone to fill out a form over a period of time (about 7 days) while someone else makes separate submissions throughout those 7 days?


    Thank you!

    Yes that is possible to achieve. It is possible to save form and continue later. You might consider using one of the following options:

    1. How to Enable Auto fill feature - save form entries to continue later 

    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 browser to access data.

    2. How to save form to continue later (Session method)

    The Session method is saving the data on our servers. With this method you will need to use two forms, one for session generation and second as primary. Then users will be able to access their sessions from any locations.

    Each user will have their own session, which is independent from sessions of other users. So multiple users are able to submit your form at any time. 

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