    Can I create forms that can be saved by users?

    Asked by jonbard on November 17, 2016 at 08:35 PM

    Hi,

     

    I sell online courses at Teachable.com.  We have embedded PDF  forms as part of our classes, and I'd like the ability for students to work on these forms and then save their work (perhaps by saving the PDF to their computer so they can access their answers later).

     

    Is this possible with Jot Form?  Also, is it possible to change the "Submit" button to either "save" or "print"

     

    Thanks!

    You can convert your online JotForm form to Fillable PDF form. Fillable PDF form that can be filled and submitted in Adobe Acrobat. You will also be able to save entered data and continue later. 

    How to Create a PDF Form

    More about Fillable PDF forms you can find inside of this guide:

    With our online forms it is also possible to save form and continue later. You might consider using one of the following options:

    1. How to Enable Auto fill feature - save form entries to continue later 

    Auto fill method is based on browser local storage. 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 same browser to access data.

    2. How to save form to continue later (Session method)

    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 second as primary. Then users will be able to access their sessions from any locations.

    You can change text of Submit button inside of Form Builder. 

    You can also add print button to your forms.
