Sometimes you just don't have the time to finish a case straight away. You may be interrupted, or need to chase histology or you just run out of time. Now when you create a case it will start off in 'Draft Mode' which means you can take your time making it just right before publishing it (draft mode will be rolled out over the next week). 

When a case is in draft mode only you can see it, and it won't be pushed to the moderation cue until you publish it. You won't be able to add it to playlists or articles or share it until you publish it however. 


Your draft cases will be accessible to you from your user page and from the top of the header. 


To publish a case, just go back into edit mode and click "Save and Publish". 

So that we don't end up with a huge number of unfinished essentially 'private' cases, there will be a limit to the number of draft cases you can have at any one time. Currently this will be set to 25 per user, but we will monitor usage and may adjust this over time. 

We hope this will result in higher quality cases. 

As always please let us know what you think of this new feature and report any bugs you may find. 

Cheers, Frank

    Very functional and practical! So similar to how we made our exams reports in RIS-PACS.
    This new tool will help a lot as allow us to add cases while we are working, just putting the images on the server, and then finishing the case at home.

    Very much welcome this. I believe it will facilitate people in doing more and better cases as can chip away, save and return - in a similar fashion to
