Save Your Chatter Posts as Drafts

Have you ever lost your work in the middle of writing an important Chatter post? We know how frustrating that is. Introducing Draft Posts, a new option to automatically save all your unpublished feed items.

Where: This feature is available in Lightning Experience in Contact Manager, Group, Essentials, Professional, Enterprise, Performance, Unlimited, and Developer editions.

Why: As you type a new post, Chatter saves your work to the My Drafts tab. Add files, links, images, mentions, hashtags, and any other rich text, because we save it all.

When you save a post with a hashtag, the corresponding topic is not created until the post is published.

How: To turn on Draft Posts in your org, navigate to the Chatter setup menu. Under the Draft Posts section, select Allow draft posts.

Chatter REST API and Chatter in Apex support draft posts.
