    Hi,

    I was wondering if the forms have a "save for later" type feature.  Some of our forms are long and can take our customers a couple of sittings to complete so it would be necessary for their already entered data to be saved for when the get back to it.


    Thanks!

    Hi Casey,

    We actually have that feature. There are two options of applying this feature:

    1. https://www.jotform.com/help/97-How-to-Save-Forms-and-Continue-Later

    2. https://www.jotform.com/help/227-How-to-Enable-Auto-Fill-Feature-Save-Form-Entries-to-Continue-Later

    The first option saves the input data in the session. The Session method is saving the data on our servers. With this method you will need to use two forms, one for session generation and the second form as primary. Then, users will be able to access their sessions from any locations.

    The second one, the Auto Fill method, is based on browser local storage. In other words, it is saving the form data on users browser, so user can open the form later and he/she will see the past data. Note, user will need to use the same browser to access the data.

    If you need any further assistance please contact us.
