Save As Draft without navigating


#1

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.

Hi,

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.

Best Regards,
