Save and edit drafts before entry goes live?

I'm looking for a quick clarification around BWF's capabilities.

The blurb states: With Better Workflow, you will be able to work on a ‘draft copy’ of a live entry, preview your changes and then ‘submit for approval’.

Does this mean BWF only works on an entry that has already been published and is live? Or is it possible to save an entry as a draft, preview, etc. before it is ever published? I assume so, but wanted to check first as the workflow I'm after is as a pre-publishing editorial system for drafts.

    Hi Tom,

    Yes, all the features behave the same with an entry before it is published. The key difference is that when you edit an entry AFTER it has been published you are in fact working on a different record, so the current published entry is unaffected.

    Let me know if you have any other questions.
