A long-requested feature, Design Drafts give you the ability to alter your website’s design without impacting the site's appearance in real time, and without having to go into Maintenance Mode.
To get started on a new draft, head to the SNO Design Options page and select the Design Drafts tab. Click on “Create New Draft” in the middle of the page and you’ll be on your way to a new site design.
It can be helpful to think of working on Design Drafts in a similar way to checking out books at a library. Only one person can “Check Out” and work on a draft at a time, and when they’re finished, that individual needs to return to the Design Draft tab and click “Check In.”
Drafts can also be reset, made private, or viewed by additional staff members while they are checked out by someone else by using the draft-specific buttons within the Design Drafts tab.
Finally, when you’re ready to push out a Design Draft to your website, simply click “Push Live” and watch your site update seconds later, at which point the draft will automatically disappear from the Design Drafts tab to make room for future drafts.
There are two other notes to keep in mind when utilizing the Design Drafts tool. First, there is a hard limit of 5 drafts that can exist on your website at any given time. If you have maxed this limit out and you want to create another, you’ll need to delete one. Second, drafts store only design data. Whether you’re viewing your website live or in draft mode, the most recently added content will always appear.
