    what instructions do they need? The form is still under construction. It will be pretty long and they may not finish in one sitting - how do i allow them to save what they've entered and return later to complete? https://form.jotform.com/62658458612969

    Hello pardop1,

    Yes it is possible to achieve your requirement of saving the input data in form and submit it later. There are multiple options available:

    1. Auto Fill feature:  You can enable the "Auto Fill" feature of your form which will save the input data every few seconds. Please note that since auto fill feature saves the input data in browser cookie, if the user access the form again from other browser, other system or clear the browser cache, the saved data will not be accessible anymore.

    2. Save input data in session: User can save the input data in session that is stored in our server. Please note that this feature requires two forms and the main form should have the "Page Break" field. The data is saved in session only on the click of the next button of form. This feature will allow user to continue last saved form from any computer. The following guide should help you:  http://www.jotform.com/help/97-How-to-Save-Forms-to-Continue-Later
