When you create an entry, you can select either Post Entry or Save Entry as Draft. By saving an entry, you can return to it later to make changes before the entry is made available to all course users. Both faculty and students have this option.

Saving a Draft of an Entry

  • Navigate to the Journals page
  • Select the name of a Journal to enter
  • Select Create Journal Entry
  • When finished composing your Entry Message, select the Save Entry as Draft button
  • Your entry will be saved as a Draft

Important Note: When an entry is saved only the author of the entry will be able to see it. The entry will NOT be visible to anyone else viewing the Blog. For this reason, you must remember to open a Draft entry and then select Post Entry so everyone can see it!
