FIRECalc Storing my entries?

I have played around with FIRECalc for years, and only recently discovered all of the tabs that let you fine tune and enter additional data about your plan. Maybe dumb question or I'm missing something obvious, but is there a user login that allows the app to retain my entered data? As with most, my retirement phases will not be simple with a period when my wife still works, then retires we pay healthcare out of pocket, then leap to Medicare, then to SS, etc. I'd hate to enter all of that data only to have it lost when I close the browser....?

TIA

I'm not sure if this is just for firecalc supporters (after you donate, you can logon and get a few extra features)... but when you get your output there is an option to "link to this set of data". I suppose you could save the link of the page that is generated - and therefore save your data.

I wouldn't advise it for someone that isn't willing to spend more time than one should making it work, but I've been successfully using the Excel spreadsheet concatenate function to build link strings to open an appropriate Firecalc session for my various what if's and real world scenarios. Pulling values for income & expenses from various worksheet tabs to fill in the appropriate fields, and then using a ton of functions to massage it into a proper link string.

once you set all values as you wished on the results page click on "Link to this set of data" then select the URL and save it has all you data defined.

I don't know if this is different, but when I enter my data into FC, my earlier entries pop up. i.e.; If I had entered 22,000 for SS, the next time I go to enter it, "22,000" drops down and lets me choose that number if I want. I'm not sure if it is within FC or some cookie that my laptop is holding.
