Save draft vs. post

When creating new items in D2L, you can save your messages as a draft instead of posting right away or you can simply post.

This feature is available in both the News and Discussions tools.

The save draft button allows you to come back to the message later to edit it before posting.  In order to find a saved draft, look for the draft in the area it was created (news or discussions). 
In Discussions, select the topic where the draft was created and select Drafts from the View drop-down list in the top right corner of the page.
News: From the course home page, select the News tool.  A list of posts will appear with the "status."  Select the desired draft.  
Note: Once you have posted a news item, it cannot be reverted to a draft form.
