[Status: Backburner ⌛️] Request Form - autosave?

Request form – If a person is filling out a form and then they close the browser by accident before hitting submit does the form autosave somewhere?  Also is there a way to save your request forms? I have many marketing managers asking me this because they tend to fill our pieces of the form sporadically.

Hi everyone, thanks for your continued support for this feature!

I've added the "Investigating" status here, which means that our Product team is researching the possibility to implement it. If you'd like to know more about Product Feedback statuses, please check out this post.

I'll get back to you here when I have more info to share 🙌

I too would like to see this feature. We use request forms for client surveys and sometimes we need to save a draft mid way through while we work on getting some additional information together. We've lost in-progress surveys for lack of this feature. Is there any update on it?

A quick update: I've changed the status to Backburner; hopefully the team will be able to prioritize in 2020. I'll let you know when there's an update.

This would be great!  Just giving this some more love as we cross our fingers.  Would take the Request Forms component to the next level.

We are fairly new to Wrike, but this has been a question from the team since launching. They would like to be able to save content entered into fields within a submission form as a draft.  Our project brief submission form is lengthy and team members often find themselves working on it and having to come back to it later to complete. It would be nice to be able to save their progress as a draft to be able to complete and submit at a later time. 

Now they have to dedicate the time to filling out the form in one sitting in case the tab is inadvertently closed or the page refreshed.  

Hopefully this feature is on the list for future development!

+1 from me.

This is a must! Especially for longer request forms - it's far, far, far too easy to lose all the information you input now. We are using this for employee self-assessments and there are many questions which prompt the user for more than just a one word/drop down/radio response. If they make any mistake or close Wrike then it is all gone. Time wasted. We would love to use Request Forms more, but without this feature we will need to look elsewhere, which is unfortunate because we want to use WRIKE for as much as we can!

The ability for users to save forms as they work to complete them would be extremely beneficial, and our organization whole-heartedly supports the call to bring this feature to reality.  One of the most important forms we have established in Wrike is our Project Scoping Form, which requires a considerable amount of detailed information that can rarely be written or input in a single session.  Because users are not able to save their progress in completing such complex forms, they are having to draft the information in applications like Word and Excel and then paste it into Wrike, which is inefficient and is slowing adoption of the Wrike platform.

Calls for this functionality date back to 2017 and seem to have solid support, so come on Wrike Development Team, we are pulling for you!

Hi, this feature should be implemented soon, it is useless to have implemented improvements to be able to create very detailed and complete forms if the person who fills them can not do them calmly and dedicating time. This involves doing them in phases and having to gather prior information in order to be able to answer the questions. Thank you in advance for your effort in improving

It´s a necessary feature, which many of us would be grateful if it could be implemented soon. It would save us a lot of time and make our project startup processes more agile.
