Storing drafts and required fields

Storing drafts and required fields

Friday 23 May 2014 1:39:49 pm - 2 replies


When editing, the "Store draft" button lets you store the draft without filling in all required fields, while the "Store draft and exit" button won't let you.

So the question I have is whether this is by design or if it is a bug?

Having the ability to store and exit a draft without filling out all the fields would be preferable.

I'm using 5.2 enterprise with ezautosave extension disabled.

It's by design - this is the same in 4.x series. The point of "Save now" or autosave being that if your computer crashes or browser window closes, you've lost nothing.  "Save draft & exit" is a bit more stringent, as all your field validation kicks in.

Hope that clears things up - if so, please mark as solved by clicking the icon next to your topic heading.

Hi Geoff

Thanks for confirming this is by design.

Although, I think the validation should be identical for both buttons.
