I have a question about automatically saved forms. We are developing a complex system where user has to fill the form which includes multiple pages. After clicking the button "next page" the system saves the received data to the database and has to make many queries and calculations. We are convinced that its unnecessary to use automatically saved form fields in this kind of situation but our client still thinks that it is drastic loss of data if Internet connection/or other problem occors durning the form filling process.
Are we underestimating the client problem? Which kind of programs should use automatic form field saving?
