This chapter describes how the AIM Drafts folder works. AIM automatically saves every 30 seconds when you create or modify certain objects. This action allows you to navigate away from an object to do another AIM operation, then come back to that object later in the Drafts folder to finish.
Autosave occurs when you create:
When you create any of the objects listed above, AIM automatically saves a draft after the first 30 seconds. Then AIM saves again each 30 seconds after that.
The Drafts folder in the AIM navigation area displays, in parentheses, the number of objects that are waiting for you to finish. Each object is active in AIM (and removed from the Drafts folder) immediately after it is finished.
Autosave also occurs while you modify a filed on the following pages:
When you navigate to modify a field on these pages, the Save Changes button is disabled. After you modify a field, the Save Changes button is enabled. If after 30 seconds you have not saved a modified field, autosave occurs and the Save Changes button is disabled.
