I am in the process of creating a form that will be filled out by several users who will need to get information from other sources, i.e: information like insurance limits.
Are they able to save the information they have already filled out in the form while waiting on the information from the other sources?
You cannot currently save the form across browser sessions. If you close the browser before submitting, the data will be lost. This is something we would like to support at some point but I can't say when.
Sorry for any inconvenience this may cause you.

As a FormsCentral Plus subscriber, I'd like to also request form saving functionality! Specifically, the ability for users to begin work in a form, save it, and be able to return back to the form at some point (perhaps via unique URL) to either complete the form or enter in more data for saving.
Thanks for the feedback. Could you provide a little more detail on your use case? What type of form is it? There are several ways for us to technically implement this feature so I wanted to understand your use case in more detail.
Thanks for the quick response, Randy!
What I'm creating is a building site survey with a series of complex questions requiring the user to review separate documentation and/or physical building elements. In practice, the user would begin filling out the survey, filling in what they already know, and then have to come back to the same survey at a later time once they've reviewed the necessary documentation and/or building elements. It's a situation where we need all of the responses to the entire survey on one response form (ideally), but the end users will be filling out the varying survey questions at different dates and times. Only upon final submission of the completed survey would we need their responses.
I'm trying to figure out a workaround in the meantime, possibly using multiple surveys and redirects, but so far I'm still seeing problems with the collection of responses and in managing/communicating the multiple links required for such a workaround.
We just added the ability to distribute your form as a fillable PDF form and have all of the data submitted back to FormsCentral. Your respondents can save the PDF form locally, fill it out, save, come back later to finish and then submit the data. I wrote up a forum post that explains it in more detail: http://forums.adobe.com/thread/994199
Please give it a try and send us your feedback on it.
