What are Resume Session URL and Session ID?
A Resume Session URL consists of the published module URL and the unique session ID. Every time you end-users start using a published module, a unique session ID is automatically created. Combined with the fixed (Test or Live) URL of a published module, a Session ID is used to offer a Resume Session URL which allows end-users to pick up where they left off in a session.
Why would you use Resume Session URL and Session ID?
The "Resume Session"-Link is a way for users to return back to a session at a later point to finish the session. It is the link that is visible in the save and continue later modal of the Wizard which can now be used as a variable.
The variable will only contain a value when the module is published on either TEST or LIVE environment and when data is "saved for statistics".
If these built-in features are activated on your tenant, authors can @-reference the resume session URL or the session ID in any content field. Session IDs could be used as unique identifiers for documents or if data gathered in the module is gathered, for example, in an external data base
Example use cases
If you want to provide a user with an alternative to Come back later and restart this page which requires them to save the link manually, you can simply send an email to the user containing the Resume Session URL.
In very long modules that require a lot of information to be entered or suffer from high drop-off rates, consider sending the resume session URL right at the start of the module via email. This could even be automated for logged-in users, by sending an email to the current end-user's email address which can be accessed from the built-in values drop-down field.
