When you fill out a Google Form in your Google account, your progress is automatically saved as a draft for 30 days. This means if you can't complete a form or need to switch devices, you don’t have to start over the next time you open the form.
Important: If you’re offline, autosave doesn’t work.
When you save a draft, Draft saved appears at the top of the form.
If you sign in to a Google Account and Saving disabled is at the top of the form, the creator may have disabled draft response autosaving on their form. If you want to turn on autosaving, contact the form owner.
Factors that may impact saved responses:
- If you lose access to a form, you also lose access to your draft.
- If the form owner:
- Deletes a question, your answer to that question is deleted.
- Makes a change to a question option you’ve selected, it's no longer selected in your draft.
- Makes changes to branching logic in a form, you may lose access to certain pages of a form.
- Since your draft responses are temporary data, you won't be able to download your responses. Instead, you can get a copy of your responses by copying and pasting them into another document.
- If the form owner changes the question stem or other answer options, your answer won’t be affected.
