Form Abandonment Recovery allows you to keep track of each new submission as the form is being filled out. 

The first thing you need to do is login to your MightyForms app.

1. Select Form

Once there, you can either create a new form or select an existing form from your dashboard

2. Go to Settings

With the selected form open, click on 'Settings'.

3. Navigate to Advanced Settings

4. Enable Continuous Capture

Right now on the app, the Form Abandonment Recovery Feature is named Recover Abandoned Forms, select 'On' to enable the feature.

5. Save changes

Click 'Save changes' to update the settings.

You'll see a 'Success' message pop-up to confirm that the changes have been successful.

6. Track on your Form's dashboard

And that's all you need to do! Now whenever a new user interacts and starts answering your form, you'll see the data on your form's dashboard. The 'Status' column indicates whether the form was submitted, is in the process of being filled, or has been abandoned entirely. 


Note: The Form Abandonment Recovery feature was formerly known as Real-time Data Capture.
