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

Maestro doesn’t automatically save a design, such as a form, template or component, while you are working on its content, so you must do it manually to persist changes to the design.

To save a design:

  1. Open a design in the Maestro editor and edit it as required.
  2. Click Save to save the changes.

  4. Select Save as New Version to save the changes to a new design version.

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

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

Should any conflict arise while saving a design, the message displays the user name who has saved the design, 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 it as userSavedFlag = TRUE, so this form submissions won't be abandoned.
