Forms Saved by User to Return to Later

  1. Hello,

    Is it possible for a user (who is register as a WP user on site) to Save a Form (multi-page) to return to complete and submit at a later time?

    Thanks,

    Travis

  2. Currently there is no Save/Restore functionality for users filling out forms. It may be possible as a customization using cookies.

    It is a feature we would like to look into implementing in the future, especially with multi-page forms being introduced in 1.5 which is tentatively scheduled to launch on Monday.

  3. I'd love to see this feature in the future as well. Maybe it requires a user registration (which I think is a fair trade and can piggyback GF reg component.) and then saves the information to the User tables in the DB. Using cookies seems like it might be frustrating if the user wants to return on another computer or if they clear their history often. In any regard it's a huge request, just felt like bumping this post. Thanks again for all the hard work.

    This is a must have feature, particularly for lengthy forms spanning several steps and pages. And particularly for post generation.

    I guess this feature is like to be implemented in a later version of GF, and one that will support front-end editing?

    From a post generation perspective, once the user is registered and logged in they will able to partially create a post and come back to it later to say, add photos or whatnot?

    Staying on the post generation perspective, there are some interesting premium themes by CosmoThemes.com which have front-end editing capabilities.

    Community driven WP themes with front-end editing capabilities are the future.
