Submission Drafts


Brightidea's 'Drafts' feature allows users to save their incomplete submissions as 'drafts' either automatically (as users are entering a submission) or manually. Let's get to the info below. 

Getting Started

  • First, add the "My Drafts" widget to one of your Challenge/WebStorm pages where users can easily find their drafts.  
    • It will show all pending drafts for the user when they save submissions to be drafted - or when the submission is automatically saved.
  • A submission is automatically saved once after five seconds once the user stops typing their  submission description on submission page.
  • If the user manually selects the "Save Draft" button on the submission page, they will see a popup confirmation show up automatically above the title as confirmation their draft was saved:
 
 

Drafts widget:

  • The widget automatically shows the user's saved drafts.
    • The timestamp for when the draft was saved is reflected after the title.
    • The user can select the delete icon to the left of the title to completely remove the draft from their saved list:

 

Member Landing Page:

  • The member landing page (if used on your Brightidea site) will also display users' saved drafts in the "submissions" tab.
    • Selecting the "X" icon will allow the user to delete any saved drafts.
    • Selecting the title or "Edit" will bring the user to the submission page to continue where they left off.

    Is there a way to see how many idea drafts are in a particular Webstorm?

    Hi Damian,

    Unfortunately, there is no reporting or functionality to view saved drafts of other users.

    Thank you,

    Brightidea Support
