Can I Save an Assignment as a Draft in Google Classroom and Finish It Later?
One of the best features of Google products is the auto-save feature. Gone are the days where you lose your work if your computer crashes or you log off and forget to press save. Google Classroom also has a nifty auto-save feature with assignments.
One option while working on an assignment, is to click on the drop-down arrow next to where it says ‘Assign’, and select ‘Save as draft’. However, if you are in the middle of creating an assignment and exit out of it for any reason, it will automatically be saved as a draft and you can come back to it later to finish it.
Here is an example of an assignment that has not been finished or posted yet:
Next to the word “Assignment” in the top left corner is an “X”. If you click it, you will be exited out of the assignment and will be brought back to the “Classwork” tab. Here, you will see it was saved as a “Draft”.
You can even log out and come back later, and it will still be there. Click on “Edit Assignment” and you can go back in and finish creating the assignment at your leisure.
You also can click next to where it says “Draft” and the ellipsis (three dots) will appear and give an option to delete. If you want to get rid of the draft, click on delete and it will erase it for you.
