Creating a draft is a practical way of saving content to be finished later, for example, if you don't have time enough to finish the post right away.
Create a draft
Creating a draft starts the same way that you start creating a new post by clicking blue "+" button or any date in the calendar. Write your message, and insert a picture(s) or video if you wish.
When you are ready click the "Next" in the bottom right. Select Save as a draft from the menu. Your message is now saved as a draft under the Drafts in the Planner.
Edit drafted post(s)
You can easily access recently drafted posts right on your dashboard for editing. Just open the post and click the "Blue pen" edit button. Note, that the Drafts stream is only visible in the dashboard when you have at least 1 drafted post.
Another handy way to access your drafted posts is right in the new post view, the Drafts (envelope icon) on the bottom row of the view. The Drafts is only visible when you have drafted posts, and you haven't started creating content yet.
All drafts can be found in the Planner under the Drafts tab. Drafts will automatically appear on your Dashboard once there is at least one drafted post created.
You can also schedule drafts in your calendar. This is a handy way to plan all your posts without fearing they go live unintentionally. After the draft is ready, simply change it to a scheduled post to be published at the selected time or publish right away if you wish.
Scheduling drafts is also a great way to teamwork with colleagues or clients.
