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. Find instructions and tips below on how you can create a draft and edit it to be finished later.
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 take or insert a picture if you wish.
- When you are ready with writing your message, you can move on and click the "Next" -button in the right bottom corner of the New post view. Select "Save as a draft" from the list.
- 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 blue Drafts link on the top right. Note, that the Drafts link is only visible when you have drafted posts.
- 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.
