Presenting a new auto-save system that’ll help prevent data loss.
This new feature, called “Transparent Draft,” will save members the frustration of losing their work if they accidentally close their browser window prior to saving a draft of the article. Instead, the article will be automatically restored the next time they log in.
To better understand this feature, imagine you’re writing an article …
- Partway through entering your article into the submit form you decide you want to see what you’ve written thus far, so you hit the Preview button.
- The Preview shows your partially completed article in a pop-up window.
- Then, you accidentally close the browser window instead of clicking the Close Preview button.
- Fortunately, your article progress isn’t lost. You simply go back to http://members.ezinearticles.com/ and click Submit A New Article under the Article Manager dropdown.
- An Unsaved Draft Restored message (like the one below) appears at the top of the submit form showing that the data wasn’t lost:
- From this point, you can continue working on the restored draft on that page. Otherwise, you can click “save” in the alert to save a new draft or reset the form to a completely new article by clicking “delete this auto-save.”
Keep in mind that this is independent of the “Draft” system. Think of it as similar to Microsoft Word’s document recovery, where a crash of the software allows you to restore your work.
Note: The auto-save will only recall the most recent article you were working on.
