Just a quick note to let you know about a minor improvement, coming this week, that will hopefully save you a little time and make the creation of content easier. We’ve added the ability to preview some content where you previously didn’t have that choice.
You’ve always had the ability to preview a blog post before publishing it. However, doing so took you out of the writing flow. The system would save a draft and open your preview in a new window. It also then forced you to click a link to come back to your draft after previewing to keep writing, which meant another save and load of a new window. This could be a laborious process if you needed to preview a blog multiple times before actually publishing it.
To help streamline this, we’ve changed the way the Preview button works. Now, it immediately opens your blog preview in a new, separate window. Your current blog draft will stay open in its own window, and you can continue working on your draft at any time. While this is not a radical change, it will probably save a lot of time over time.
We’ve added this functionality to forum discussion posts, too. Previously, forum discussions did not have any preview possibilities, forcing you to edit a post after publishing. Now, if you need to make an important announcement but want to see what it will look like before it’s live for everyone, you can. Also, you'll be able to preview in Group forums, too.
Again, this isn’t a massive change, but a simple one that we hope will make life a little easier and save a few moments along the way.
