At that time, the data is submitted through a submit data connection that saves the information in an external data source, such as a Share Point form library. For example, as the form designer, when you save a form, your progress developing the form is saved so that you can continue to work on it later, just like when saving a Word document.
Likewise, when a user is filling out a form, they can save the form in order to save their progress filling out the form in order to be able to return to the form later.
