Save & Resume | Setup Save & Resume - Zoho Forms

Setting up Save & Resume


When you share a form that has numerous questions, it might take a long time for your respondents to fill it out at one stretch. Sometimes, your respondents may not have all the details to complete a form in one go. In the worst case, your respondents fill out a long form, and before they could submit, they might lose their data due to network issues or other external factors. To avoid such scenarios , you can use the Save & Resume option in Zoho Forms.

To enable this option,
  1. In your form builder, navigate to the Settings tab.

  2. Click Save & Resume from the left menu and enable the option.

  3. Once enabled, a Save button will be available in the footer of each page in your form. You can change the Save Button Label according to your preference. For example, Continue Later .  
    When respondents save their form, they will see a popup with a link to their partially saved form as shown.
