Can a respondent cache a started survey via Forms and continue it later?

 

We have a survey that is quite long and time-consuming, so respondents may want to complete this in multiple sessions. Is there an opiton that a started survey can be cached and continued later?

 

Also, what happens (If the survey was created so that everyone can answer only once) if a user has given wrong entries and would want to correct after submission? Is there a way (with anonymous answers) to give them a second go?

@Susi_1974 no there is no way to cache it or save it and continue later, it has to be completed in one session.

 

If you've set it that each person can respond only once then the form is not anonymous. If it's an anonymouse form via the "anyone with a link can respond" you cannot set it to only 1 response per person because Forms doesn't know who anonymous responders are.
