Save a Form

   MaestroThe UI design product.  |   Form Builder |   17.10 This feature was updated in 17.10.

Maestro doesn’t automatically save a form while you are working on its content, so you must click Save regularly to persist your changes to the form.

To save a form:

  1. Open a form in the Maestro Editor.
  2. Edit the form as required.
  3. Click Save to save the changes.

    The save button becomes enabled only if there have been changes to a form since it was last saved.

  4. Select one of the following save options:
    • Save this Version - saves the changes to the currently open form version and it works in the same way as clicking the Save button.
    • Save as New Version - saves the changes to a new form version. You must enter a new version number and a description in the Save as New Version window.
  5. Click Close to close the tab with the form.

Maestro comes with the save form notification mechanism.  |  17.10 This feature was introduced in 17.10.

If you have saved a form while other Maestro editor users have the form open or have been working on it, they will see the following warning message:

Should any conflict arise while saving a form, the message displays the user name who has saved the form, so you can reach out to that user to discuss which changes should be saved or rolled back.


When a user saves a form, Manager marks a form as userSavedFlag = TRUE, so this form submissions won't be abandoned.
