I suggest you ...

Allow form respondents to save and continue to fill the form later

Allow students to save results without submitting test for students with accommodations to finish later. Students with extended time sometimes have to finish at a later time and the way it is set up now they have to restart the test each time.

    This is obviously a very demanded feature all over as is apparent from this post and it has been more than 2 years since this was suggested. I hope they're implementing it already.

    Meanwhile, is there an alternative to this? Can we somehow save the incomplete form in Sharepoint list and load the data from the Sharepoint-list row the next time that user logs in? (Just a suggestion)

    Yes! Please add a save option. I use forms in my workflow at my company, and my forms submitters routinely ask for a save and continue later option. Please prioritize this important work.

    Need this like yesterday. Should be at or near the top of the list.

    This would be useful for other types of forms.
    Possibly with the option of including reminded if the person has not gone back to the form for some time, and may have forgotten.

    We need this functionality for client on boarding where some information may need to be gathered to complete the form and then entered at a later date.

  • Anonym commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    Yes, please do! It will make it so much more applicaple for many purposes.

    Absolutely add this please. This functionality will make Forms truly powerful.

    I agree. We are currently using forms for DPIA screening questions and would like to use it for full DPIA,however the lack of option to save the form and come back at later date and lack of an option to add attachements, discourages and prevents us from using forms for DPIA. Please update the forms with new features as this can have a huge prospect of heloing organisations with their GDPR documentation requirements,

    Last week I asked my students to finish a quiz they had been working on. To my surprise they were able to continue where they had stopped the previous time!
    Can anyone else confirm this?
