    Based on the information in this link: https://www.jotform.com/help/97-How-to-Save-Forms-and-Continue-Later - it appears you can build forms that can be saved as incomplete. The how-to indicates an email should be used as the unique user ID for this process to work. We use forms to gather similar information from the same users over and over. If I build the form to "save as incomplete" with the email address as the user ID, will the system be able to capture the new, different, information upon each submission?

    Once the form is submitted, the session for that email address will be cleared. This means all the data that was saved will be cleared after the form is submitted. Your users will be able to make new entries to your form using the same email address after they submit the previous data. 

    If you need further assistance, feel free to let us know.

    Thanks! I decided it would be better for our users to have a unique ID as they will not be able to have more than one incomplete form with their email address.
