Not quite ready to publish? Guru users can draft content and wait to publish until the time is right. Whether you want to work on a Card intermittently or prep for a big launch, you can now start and stop editing on your time. We’ve made it easy to make edits to new and existing Cards without worrying about losing your content.
Note - this video contains references to an older navigation experience in Guru.
Saving a Card as a draft
1. When creating a new Card or editing an existing Card, Navigate to the bottom left corner of the Card Editor and select Save as draft. You can save a Card as a Draft during the Card Settings step as well.
2. The following page will confirm when this draft has been saved. Draft Cards do not save Collection and Board information. If you resume editing a draft Card and opt to publish, you will have the opportunity to enter Collection, Board, and Tags before publishing the Card.
3. You can continue working on your saved Draft from our Web App under the My Tasks > Drafts menu. Learn how to recover, edit, and save your Card drafts here.

Frequently Asked Questions about Card drafts
Can multiple people work on a draft at the same time?
Not at this time, but check out this article for alternative paths to help you accomplish your goal.
Can I edit Cards that are already published?
Absolutely! You can save improvements to any Cards that you have Author access to as a draft. The rest of your team will view the previous version until you publish your updates.
Will the tags and Verifiers I add to a Card be saved with my draft?
Drafts will only save Card content and the Collection you assign, so when a user creates a draft, Boards, tags and Verifier selections will not be saved to the Card. Any new tags or Boards created will still exist, but they won't be associated with the drafted Card.
Are others able to view my drafts?
No, only the creator of the Card has access to the Cards they’ve authored on the Drafts page.
Can I save a Card as a draft via the extension?
Yes! When creating a Card from the extension you will have the opportunity to save as a draft. To recover the draft, you can either open it in the extension or navigate to the Drafts tab under My Tasks on the Web App.
