Manage legacy drafts

  

The legacy drafts system will eventually be replaced by our new personal and collaborative drafts. Try crafting your next post in the new Composer and save your future drafts from there.

Legacy drafts are private, single-use messages that can be found and edited in the Legacy Drafts folder. These cannot be shared with others. Drafts can include images, videos, links, geo-tags or locations, targeting, privacy options, and can be scheduled.

Note that drafts are single-use, meaning they will disappear from Drafts when sent or scheduled. However, Free, Professional, and Team users have the option to check the Retain copy of draft message box on each draft to keep it in the Drafts folder. Enterprise users should save drafts they want to retain in their content library.

Tip: Any message in the compose message box is auto-saved until cleared. Clear the compose message box by clicking Clear.
