Too Bad, So Sad...
By , for WP 3.9.2

Was hoping this plugin worked with GF 1.8.9 but sadly... no. Too bad.

ata Persistence overrites pre-populated data
By ,

I have a form where i want to pre populate some field value using "allow field to be populated dynamically" but when I use Data Persistence the data is erased.Is there any solution for it?

Currently working
By , for WP 3.9.1

Plugin is currently working with WordPress 3.9.1 and Gravity Forms 1.8.4.

You will need to ammend the plugin using the steps below.

What you also need to know is:
* data is saved as the user goes from one page to another in an multi-page form.
* the user can log off, go to another browser, come back at another point in time and access their incomplete form by logging in and returning to the form.
* the submitted data does not appear in the backend until the user has completed the form.

Necessary changes
Open the plugin file and look in line 134 for:
add_action("gform_editor_js", "editor_script_persistency");

Change to
add_action("gform_advanced_settings", "editor_script_persistency");

Currently not working
By , for WP 3.9

I tested this plugin and it was working perfectly until recent WP updates. I now have 3.9 installed.
I also use the following plugins for gravity forms:

I also have the latest of these Gravity Forms Add-Ons running:
- Gravity Forms Coupons Add-On
- Gravity Forms User Registration Add-On

No Support

Ok, I think I figured the thing out after a week of it keeping me up day and night. The only way a Gravity Form can save data is as a multi-page form. I haven't completely figured out the behavior yet but at least I finally have data that stays in my fields when I navigate away. If the developer would only communicate this simple stuff (step-by-step please for those of us not intuitively aware of developer's logic), he could save so many headaches! Play around with the page break element in the form options. See whether that works. Whoever develops these plugins needs a technical writer (shameful communication...and I paid for the plugin...come on)!!!

Doesn't work, even with fix
By ,

Thanks to the developer for their time creating this plugin and offering it for free.

Unfortunately this plugin doesn't work anymore, even with the fix that was suggested in these comments.

I am running the latest version of everything as of today (Jan 31, 2014):
- WordPress 3.8.1
- Gravity Forms 1.8.3

I also have the latest of these Gravity Forms Add-Ons running:
- Gravity Forms Coupons Add-On
- Gravity Forms Logging Add-On
- Gravity Forms MailChimp Add-On
- Gravity Forms PayPal Add-On
- Gravity Forms PayPal Pro Add-On

If anyone has any suggestions, please share.

Thanks very much.

Needs a tweak but seems to work
By ,

Firstly its crazy that Gravity forms don't offer this as standard

Secondly, this plugin failed when attempting to install to WP3.6

It can be fixed however - http://wordpress.org/support/topic/checkbox-to-turn-on-enable-form-persistence-not-staying-checked

Open the plugin file and look in line 134 for:
add_action("gform_editor_js", "editor_script_persistency");

Change to
add_action("gform_advanced_settings", "editor_script_persistency");

Normal caveats apply - back up your data before diving in etc

Good luck!

Great Plugin
By , for WP 3.5.1

The plugin does what I need! Great plugin! One action hook needed to be updated though to work in current version of GF.

Does exactly what is needed
By , for WP 3.5.1

Can't say much more than that. I was having an issue with meta fields that weren't filled out when the form was initially submitted - GF on it's own doesn't save meta fields that aren't created at the first shot. This solved the problem. Thank you.
