2.3. Building and Editing a Card

Any time you create a new card or start to update/edit a card the system creates a Draft Card, this allows you to make modifications or build cards without impacting the live cards that might be used for an actual call during that time. (Refer to FAQ 05 for the entire flow).

Both building and starting to update/edit existing Box Cards start in the same place (to continue editing, building or updating you would use the "Edit a Draft Card" link):

1. Click on Box Cards from the top menu and select "Build or Update a Card":
