Consider this scenario:
a) Your site uses multipage Gravity Forms.
b) Your user logs in to the site and starts filling up a 5-step form.
c) During the 3rd step, the user leaves without completely finishing the form.
d) Some days later, the user comes back and logs in to see that his inputs are all gone!
This happens because Gravity Forms by default does not save partially submitted forms.
Our plugin resolves this issue. Simple!
- Data can be saved automatically every 10 seconds via AJAXs.
- Disable persistence on a per field bases. Good for sensitive information you don’t want saved.
- Can now persist data for guest users based on a cookie ID.
- Only 1 persistent form can be on a page.
- Upload extracted folder to the
- Activate the plugin through the ‹Plugins› menu in WordPress
- Choose the required persistent settings on the individual form settings page.
- Do I need to pay for this plugin as we do for Gravity Forms?
No, this is an absolutely free add-on.
- Do you have any client support?
We don’t provide a dedicated support, but we will try our best to reply you back.
