Have you ever completed a session on Birda but not wanted to post the session until you had time to make some edits, add a few photos and a description? If this has happened to you, then you will probably find saving your sessions as drafts very helpful.
Why safe sessions as drafts?
Saving sessions as drafts gives you time to return to a session and add a few photos and a description before you post the session. That way, you don't have to post a half-baked session before you really want to!
The other benefit of saving a session as a draft is that your session is saved to Birda's servers as soon as it is saved as a draft. So even if you lost your phone for good, you could simply log back into Birda on a new phone, and all of your sightings, session posts and session drafts will be saved under your profile!
How do I save a draft session?

Where can I find draft sessions after I have saved them?
You can find draft sessions in the draft section of your profile. Simply tap on the profile icon on the bottom right of the menu to open your profile screen. When you save a draft session, the session will automatically be saved on Birda's servers and will then pretty much immediately show in your profile as a draft.
