You can save your thread as a draft instead of publishing it right away. This lets you return to the thread later to edit it before publishing it to the topic.
To save a draft thread, click Save as Draft instead of Post.
To find a saved draft, navigate to the topic where you created the draft and select Drafts from the Filter by tool navigation.
Note Depending on your system configuration, you may not have this option enabled. If you would like the option to save threads as drafts, contact your site administrator or your Desire2Learn Account Manager.
