    Can the form responses be saved offline?

    Asked by stephoutpost on September 06, 2016 at 04:12 PM

    Hello good day,

     

    We have been using Jotforms at my company and it is a remarkable means to collect information. We would like to know if there is a way to automatically save the responses entered in the form in case the internet connection is gone, as we have persons using the form via tablets to walk around and record responses however the internet coverage is not always stable.

     

     

    Please advise

    Thank you

    It is possible to auto save the form filled information in the browser storage by enabling Auto-fill option in the Form preferences.

    Please be noted that the information can be retrieved only when the form is accessed in the same device using the same browser. If you want to access the saved information on different devices, you may consider using Session parameter method by following the guide below:
