    How can my staff save filled forms at their end & allow for editing or completion at a later time?

    Asked by stacipaul on August 02, 2016 at 05:35 PM

    When my staff save the form (by right clicking & choosing "save as" option), when they go back to make changes to the form on opening the document it is blank?  Please how can we save for editing at a later time.

     

    Many thanks!

    Thank you for contacting us.

    We have the following 'save and continue later' options available:

    1. An Autofill option that saves the data locally in user's browser storage. It means that the form user will need to use the same browser to see their saved data.

    2. A session based save and continue later method. It saves the data on our servers in a session format, so the session can be accessed from any place. This method requires two forms.

    3. A form Submission Edit link. The form users can use it in order to edit submitted entries, so this is more like submit and edit later than save and continue later.

    How to Let Users Update Their Form Submissions at a Later Date

    Note, the 1st and the 2nd methods are not compatible between each other. You can use only one of them on a particular form.

    If you need any further assistance, please let us know.
