Setting up the Continue Forms Later Feature in Card Forms

April 2, 2021

Letting respondents save the progress of their form to continue later required to set up two forms using Page Break elements. Jotform long time users are familiar with this configuration and have been using this alternative ever since.

Newcomers should not worry anymore. The new Jotform Cards layout comes with this functionality as a built-in feature. Now, you only need to have a single form to set it up in just a few clicks.

Go to SETTINGS at the top > FORM SETTINGS on the left > click the SHOW MORE OPTIONS button > then scroll down and look for the CONTINUE FORMS LATER section.

Choose among the options:

Note the following aspects when using the CONTINUE FORMS LATER feature:

🔘 The option ENABLE WHEN FORM HAS 10+ QUESTIONS becomes enabled by default.

🔘 This feature doesn’t work on forms with less than 4 fields.

🔘 The PROGRESS BAR at the bottom of your form will allow your respondents to SAVE & CONTINUE LATER.

🔘 The PROGRESS BAR will only show up once the user fills out the first field on your form.

🔘Respondents need to click the SAVE & CONTINUE LATER button to save their progress. This feature will never save their progress automatically.t.

🔘  Your respondents can either click the GET SHAREABLE LINK to get their SESSION URL

or click the SEND THE LINK button if they want to send it to their email address for later usage.

🔘 If they decided to send it to their email, here’s what they’ll receive:

NOTE: For those who want to use their own SENDER EMAIL, it’s not possible yet. The verification emails are sent from our email servers (

IMPORTANT: Submissions that have been pending more than 3 months will be automatically deleted.
