Creating draft documents in client mutations

Last updated: Apr 30, 2020

Hi Andre, as far as I know it’s a valid way of getting prefixed, unique IDs — draft IDs in this case. You’d use a similar approach with the mutations API. I guess you’ve confirmed that
gets removed when you publish the relevant document? 🙂
P.S. Thanks Chris for suggesting this approach!

Hi Zane! You’re doing a great job reporting these, although I do wish the Studio would treat you a bit better 😉 Thanks for flagging this one. When you say ‘click from the dashboard’, are you referring to an intent link in a dashboard widget?
