How can we implement auto-save for draft orders?

2 0 3

Hi.. This is not a Question but actually a feedback and a sugession.
I feel that there should be an option of auto saving a draft order along with that button in the corner saying "Update Draft Order".
If not, then the website should not be dumb enough to close directly without prompting a dialog or warning when someone accidentally hits the close button while he created 90% of his draft order. There should be a dialog or a warning atleast. Thankyou

Thanks for reaching out in our Community forums and for sharing your concern, I’d be happy to submit your feedback to our developers for future consideration.


I understand how important time is and how frustrating losing progress can be and I will communicate your auto-save feature to the appropriate team. I also did want to confirm that when a merchant attempts to leave a page while working on a draft, we currently have an automatic pop up warning for unsaved work. It should look like this:

Kindly let me know if this is the case for you, If not, feel free to provide some more details around the current device, and browser you are using. Please ensure that the browser is up to date and I'd suggest trying this feature on an incognito tab to ensure it is not a local issue.
