Saving without closing a form
For a large form clients want a way to "save along the way". For a large form right now saving on a large form means that after a save the form will close and they will have to reopen it to continue working on it. This is too limiting. They want to be able to save and the form stays open.
I am pleased to announce we have just released the latest version of Nintex Forms for SharePoint 2013 and 2016 that includes a new button action called ‘Save and continue’.
Is this feature coming anytime soon for Task Forms within the workflow?

When is it coming to 2010?

Product version: 184.108.40.206
Release date: 8th March 2017
we do not have this new version, has anyone been successful in creating there own save and not close button?
Mark King commented
Is there a particular build of Nintex Forms for SharePoint 2013 that has this new feature?
Peter Bohn commented
Our customer wants to save the form without the mandatory field should warn and still have the form open. Only when submit the mandatory field should warn. To close a saved form, the cross in the upper right corner will do just fine. Similar to the question started this thread. Is that possible without have to write rules on every fields and save each field one by one?

While this is a great feature, it seems to actually just submit the form and then reload right away. The problem with that is that my workflows are kicking off without the form being completed. I can build workarounds for this, but it would be great if the workflows would recognize automatically that the form is not actually being submitted.

Yay!!! Great news and great job Euan and team :)
Euan, will the March 2017 release for this feature include Office 365 forms too?
Iain Carlin commented
The latest Admin comment on this indicates it will be in SharePoint 2013 and 2016 - will it also be included in a future release for 2010?

I really like the earlier mentioned: "Detecting multiple users editing the same form and updating open forms with changes in real time." - It would make a really great improvement to Nintex Forms. It would also solve issue: https://nintex.uservoice.com/forums/229406-2-nintex-forms-for-sharepoint/suggestions/13924656-save-concurrent-edits-on-a-sharepoint-list-item-us
This function would be extremely important for us....
You should be able to save the form without closing it. In the background, a workflow creates a folder and sets a link. This should be displayed directly when updating the form (without closing the form).
This is an important feature for us. Many end users are continually interrupted and need to be able to save data entered as they work, then submit the form when complete. Not having this causes frustration since they lose data entered if the form is not fully completed before closed.

1) have the ability to rename the display text of the button as any regular button.
2) if its possible to reflect the list column new values to Nintex forms after clicking save without closing, why?
if you have an SQL control or Web Service control that returns XML data that is connected to a multiline list column, and you already configured a repeating section that is connected to the same list column, you wont be able to reflect the xml data returned from the sql or web service control to the repeating section at the same time, unless you reopen the form.
How does Microsoft currently save Office Online documents? Ideally we would want to emulate that behaviour so it is a consistent experience across SharePoint and Office 365.
