AoC Packages - Packages Draft for Pending Packages

Feature request: Allow users to save drafts of deliveries ahead of actually connecting and sending. I’ve had the site reset a couple of times while I was loading up a request to lose a LOT of work. When you go back, it’s ALL gone. Option to save partially completed package creations to Drafts. Automatic save of a draft if the send files window reaches a times out. Maybe the Pending feature from Faspex could also be incorporated allowing customers to complete and entire package but not actually send it until a specified date.

    This would also be helpful as often a request for assets will come in but not all the files are readily accessible or in the process of adding there might be a question about a specific asset which needs to be answered. A draft mode would save a lot of time re-creating packages while waiting for clarity or finding files in archived locations.

    Hi - I feel your pain. We're going to review this request closely and determine how we can improve the experience.

    This would solve the issue of having only 10 minutes to load your delivery before a timeout occurs. I run into this often since the migration to the Cloud version of Aspera. To be able to pre-populate a delivery & not worry about how much time you have, or not having to create smaller delivery packages due to the time limit would be great.
