    Saving partial filled forms.

    Asked by rkhan786 on August 15, 2016 at 12:44 AM

    HI there,

     

    When i create a multi-step form, so a form which has a next button after each question.
    I've created one "Trader personality quiz", then when someone fills out the form.
    Let's say they only complete the first two questions.
    Then will you save this partial filled quiz as a response?

    Or must all the questions be completed for you to save the quiz?

    I want to save partial filled quiz as well.

    It is possible to save the partially filled quiz even if they only completed the first two questions. To achieve this, you will need to follow the steps on this guide: How to Save Forms and Continue Later.

    That doesn't really achieve what I'm after, because the user will not make
    a conscious decision to come back later, so I need the next button to save
    the form everytime it is clicked
    So of the user closed the browser then I have some information there saved

    Hi,

    In that case, you can enable Auto Fill feature of your form to enable the user to continue later. Please see the steps below.

    1. In the Form Builder, open Preferences.

    2. Click Advanced.

    3. Enable Continue Forms Later

    4. Save changes.

    Please see How to Enable Auto Fill Feature for more details.

    Dear Sir,
    Im not sure this is still giving me what I want
    So just to be clear
    Im getting users to fill out a form, some will not complete the form, and
    never come back to complete it
    What I want to do is save the information they have completed , so if they
    completed 3 of the 10 questions of the quiz, then that information is still
    valuable to me

    Thank you for the clarification. I see that you want to have a record of the incomplete form that a user will never come back to submit. Unfortunately, that is not possible to achieve. The form will have to be submitted by the user so that it will be recorded on your jotform submissions.

    The only workaround I can suggest would be to have one form for each question, that way, the user will have to submit each question. So you will have one form for the first question, then the user will submit it to move on to the next form question, and so on. To achieve this, you will need to add the link of the next form to the Thank You page of the first. Here's a guide that may help: Setting Up the Thank You Page. However, it may prove difficult to do this if you have a lot of questions that need to be answered.

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