Search to Filter Drafts

Applies to:

An enhanced version of Draft Manager lists all drafts on your site with details about publish state, date created, last edited date, and last author.

An optional alternative Draft Manager interface enables content contributors and managers to filter by keyword search and advanced search operators, in addition to the content hierarchy filter. You can also download the drafts table to CSV format.

Search to filter and download to CSV are enabled through an optional site configuration. To have this enabled on your site, contact the Expert Support Team.

Access Draft Manager

From the Expert toolbar, navigate to Site tools > Dashboard > Content Tools > Draft Manager. The legacy version of Draft Manager does not include search or the CSV download. To verify you're using the updated version, the relative path in the URL should be Special:Dashboard/ContentTools/DraftManagerV2.

Use Draft Manager

The updated Draft Manager includes the following sections:

  1. Filter results by hierarchy path: Surface only the content in progress within a specific category or guide
  2. Filter results by search query: Reduce the number of listings displayed by keywords
    • Exclude archived content via hierarchy path or tag
    • Filter by date created or edited
    • Filter by author
  3. Draft listing table: Listing of all drafts that can be ordered by title, last author, and last edit. Listings also displays page location.
    • Sort by last author to track content you are updating and active assignments by contributors.
    • Sort by edited date to track recent edits and validate progress as release dates approach, and review old content that has not moved through to publication.
  4. Draft history: Monthly download of all draft activities.
