Losing your work can be, at best, obnoxious, and, at worst, mildly infuriating. I get it. Let's make sure that never happens again.
The save draft option is not always present, so you need to know where and when you can utilize it.
Anytime you are making superficial text commentary in Bb, there will NOT be a save draft option. Remember the last time you turned in a SafeAssign assignment and there was a field called "Comments?" There will NOT be a safe draft option for things like that.
However, anytime you are using the Bb Content Editor (where you enter text in Bb) to share your work with others, or submit an assignment to a professor, you WILL have the option to save drafts.
The key tools that allow you to save drafts are:
- Journal Entries
- Discussion Board Threads
- Wiki Posts
The Save Draft tool is a quick and simple process that just might save you from losing a lot of time!
