Cannot Save as Draft on a team site blog in SharePoint Online

If you are reading this blog you must have the same issue I had a few days ago: you might not have the right permission level to use this, you might need to select an object or item, or the control might not work in this context.

Its even more frustrating when you know that you are a site collection administrator.

Lets get this solved once and for all.

Click on the gear icon on top right on your screen and select Site contents.

Click on the Posts app.
Click on List>Library settings on the ribbon and click Version Settings.
Make sure you have following settings on the page.

  • Require content approval for submitted items? Yes
  • Who should see draft items in the list? Only users who can edit items.

Click OK and go back to your blogs home page and try editing the blog again. You should be able to now see Save As Draft in your ribbon and a new Save As Draft button appearing before your Publish button.

Read my previous blog on how to get here.
