    Is there a way to create the form so it can be saved for later submission?

    Asked by njrusso on November 10, 2016 at 05:33 PM

    We have created a registration form that is pretty involved. It will require the user to complete information for 25 ppl, such as flight info/arrival times and departures. Is there a way that they can save the form if they do not know all the information at that particular time where they can come back to the form afterwards??


    From what I can tell on my test form, it looks like there is no way to "save for later" feature.


    Thank you!

    There are 2 ways to achieve this:

    1. Simpler way: Enable the Autofill feature of your form.

    Related guide: How-to-Enable-Auto-Fill-on-Forms 

    2. Complicated way, but helpful on multipage forms: Use session parameter method.

    Now deciding which one to use depends on how you want it to work. #1 above is browser-specific (meaning their form data will be saved ONLY on the browser where they left off). #2 on the other hand works on any browser but would require you to have 2 separate forms setup.

    Just drop by on those 2 pages I linked above and see what fits your needs and don't hesitate to let us know if you'd need more help.
