Recovering Card Drafts

Roles: Authors

Ready to publish your content? 🚀

Guru offers the functionality to save your Card as a draft before publishing. This will allow you to wait until the knowledge you are sharing is ready to go before publishing. When you are ready, use the below steps to finish the process of publishing your Card!


If at any time you close out of your browser without saving your Card as a draft, Guru will still save your work! You can find these autosaved drafts in the Drafts tab under My Tasks.

To Recover a Saved Draft

In the Web App

  1. Navigate to My Tasks, then select the Drafts tab. You should see your Card title listed as well as the date the Card was last edited.

  2. Now you can continue working on the Card! If you’d like to save the Card as a draft without publishing again, select Save Draft again.

  3. When you are ready to publish the Card, select Next. There you can add tags to the Card and assign it to the correct Collection and Board.

  4. Once you select Save, you're all set! The Card will be live for whoever has access to it.


You an also archive a drafted Card from this menu! It is important to note that if you archive a draft, that will be permanently deleted from Guru. 📝
