Save As Draft without navigating

Saving a draft without navigating and just update the current action instance. Will that be possible.

Lot of our users work on a draft and save it many times which creates 10’s of action items and they pile up in followupform .Is there a way to limit those entries and just save the draft without navigation and just update the current action instance.


I don’t recommend you doing this since you will loose the history on which user did which change.
There is no built-in solution for this task. But you can implement a custom solution like the following:

You will need the “Save As draft” for the first action in order to save the data.
Then you can implement another button to update the data; simply retrieve the file paths for the current request/previous action from the database [table WFPROCESS_INST_RELDATA] and then update the desired data. You will need to modify XML and HTML files that correspond to the form data and form archive.

Hi Eddy,

Can you please provide me a small sample code on how to update [table WFPROCESS_INST_RELDATA] and the form data ,form archive without navigating away in visual studio web form.
