Advanced form steps - getting saved without submitting

I am facing a weird issue where I have configured a form to appear in steps (1st step being an "Insert" form and rest being "Edit" form getting result from previous step). As soon as details are entered in the 1st step and clicked on Next, a data is getting saved in the background irrespective of whether the form gets submitted. Is this expected behavior and if so, how do we manage complete and incomplete submissions?

on each "next step", the portals will send a post to your dataverse and update the data.


To deal with submissions, what I normally do is have a Status/Stage in my "Application" table, and set it to Draft by default, and then set to Submitted/Completed after the last step. Also I usually set a submit date normally.


You can set those via Form Metadata using the "Set Value on Save:
