The "Draft for Calculated Fields Form" plugin allows you to insert a button on the form for users to save drafts of the form data and continue editing it in the future.

Some projects require building complex forms, with many fields, which users do not usually fill out in one go. And it is essential to have an alternative so that users can save the form data and continue editing it later. The "Draft Form to Calculated Fields" plugin is the tool that solves these situations, improving the user experience when completing complex forms.

A user who is filling in a form can press the "Save draft" button and close his browser. The next time the user visits the page containing the form its fields will be filled in with the draft values. This process is similar to press the save button in a Word document.

Once the form is submitted, the draft data should be automatically deleted.
