Saving an idea draft

If you'd like to save your idea as a draft, click on the Save to drafts button at the bottom of the idea submission form. You will need to have added a title for your draft idea, but that's it!

When you click Save to drafts, the idea submission window will close and you will see an idea page showing your draft:

If you want to Edit or Publish your idea, click on the Edit/Publish option in the Author tools menu. Clicking on this will re-open the Idea submission form so that you can edit any information in your idea and publish it when you're ready.

Finding and editing your drafts

If you'd like to edit or publish a draft, you can access your drafts in two ways.

From the post a new idea button:

When you click on the 'Post an Idea' button in the navigation bar, you can select one of your drafts to continue editing.

From "My Profile":
