Save and complete later

< Back to Resources

This guide is intended to help you enable users filling your forms to click a “Save and Complete Later” button and return to the form at a later date without having to refill the details of a partial completion.

Save and complete later is particularly useful if you have a long form that requires a long time for your users to complete. Allowing them to continue filling in the form later will increase your submission rates and increase the quality of responses you receive.

Enabling save and complete later

1. First you will need to have created a Snapform or create a new one. You can view a guide on how to get started with your first form here.
2. Click on “Edit” for the form you would like to enable save and complete later.

3. In the bottom left of the form editor, in the “Other Optional Settings” there is a checkbox to enable “Save and Complete Later”

4. Once enabled your form will get an additional link below the submit button titled “Save and Complete Later”. When a user that is filling in your form clicks this, they will be provided with a URL that if they return to at a later date will allow them to continue their form submission with any details they had filled in prior to clicking the “Save and Complete Later” button.

Please note that Snapforms does not add the response details to your responses list unless the user finishes the form submission. Partial entries are not a part of your collected responses.

Save and complete later is a valuable tool to help ensure your users are able to continue forms that they may not have time to complete in a single sitting. If you have any questions on this feature you can email us at
