Hello there,
Is there a possibility to offer for the user an automatic fill in for the form, based on a locally stored cookie?
When the user fills in the form for the first time, then he can choose to save this entries also for next time. These will not be stored in a db, but a small txt-file is automatically generated and stored on the device itself.
So next time, the form can recall these data and fill all fields automatically.

Is this possible?
Thanx and kind regards

Hi,

please enable "submission editable by user" in the BF menu item or module item settings (depending if call the form using a menu item or a module).
For this the users need to be logged in. That's all they they need to do.
Once they re-open the form again after the first submission, their old entries should appear, and user can continue filling out the form.

Is this ok for you?

Regards,
Tihana

Thanx Tihana,
for my case the users won´t be logged in. I am thinking of a button (radio, check,...) for "..save your entries for reuse the next time" and then a cookie should be produced to be located locally.
Then the rest should be like this, what you described above.
Any ideas?

Regards
Andreas

Hi,

I am not sure that this is possible with BF, because we are using this from my message above, but please give me some time, I need to test and investigate it

Hi,

in Breezingforms you can create a txt file on server with form data

Like this:
crosstec.org/en/forums/15-usage/129120-c....html?start=0#252394

But unfortunately this txt file, you can't use it again to auto populate same form on call
