Draft/Publish support for posts

emily_moran 4 years ago in Posts updated by jeff 4 years ago 1

This would be SO helpful! I too often have multiple in-progress posts at a time, so being able to save as a draft (if not have the autosave like gmail) would be very valuable.

Additionally—and please let me know if this should be a separate post?—I'm wondering if there is a way to even mark certain posts by stages that are only accessible by specific team members and/or user level?

For example, I have a "Can You Help Me" forum where I make posts of open tasks and positions for volunteers. For a while I was posting even lose concepts of teams/positions in there with a note in the description that it would be "fleshed out later."

While the forum is open to everyone on my team, I sometimes work on the development of certain position descriptions/task structures with 1-2 team members.

At the moment, I created a separate private team and copy/pasted in those that weren't fully developed. But if there was some form of gradation like Draft/In Review/Published, with the ability to dictate who can see what level (if not by individual than maybe by Guest vs Member vs Admin, it would save a lot of workaround time.

This of course may be totally negated if the ability to move posts arises... Then I suppose having a "in the works" team or something could work... but would still be more functional the alternate way.

Again please let me know if I should make this a separate post (excepting the 1st 2 sentences) ;D

Thank you for the suggestion. We do want to add local draft support for in-progress posts/comments so that you don't lose content if you have a network outage and the view refreshes. However, I see what you are getting at here...you would like to be able to work on posts in the same way one would work on a new post in, say, a Wordpress site.

That's certainly a separate effort from the basic "don't lose my data" draft support, but I can see where that would be useful. We'll likely try to address the basic local draft support first, with this falling a little further down the wish list.
