"Save as Draft" for posts Merged

I would love an option to save a post as a draft if I haven't quite finished crafting my description or need to do a little more research on the hashtags I'm using.

You could add a "Save as draft" button next to the save button, it still places it in the calendar as normal, so you still need a timestamp, it's just that it won't publish unless it's been promoted to 'Schedule'. 

On the calendar page, simply highlight draft items in red.

Backend: Add a flag for draft mode
Frontend: Add button for 'save as draft' - Add red border for items that are in draft mode.

The alternative workaround is scheduling for a later date and coming back to it but there is a risk that I'll forget it and it will post with an unfinished description.

    We are currently working on a Notes feature that allows folks to input notes into the weekly calendar. It'll be visible for all profiles and team members. This should hopefully address the comments mentioned for this idea.

    Yes, drafts would help greatly with collaboration. We are a 100% volunteer run non-profit and the more people we can have helping write descriptions, the better. That said, right now there's not a good way to publish content out and have the team review and approve it...

    Implementing this would be a great way to encourage collaboration among teams, especially in lieu of any approval process. At least with a Drafts option we could have lower level staff create drafts that our SMM could approve and schedule or make changes. This is definitely one of the features pulling in the direction of keeping Iconosquare and dropping Later for our social media management.

    I would love this feature. Sometimes my posts go auto published because I haven’t finished the caption and that’s the only place I have to plan the actuall post
