Begin a list, but finish later?
Is there a way to start a checklist, but leave it unsubmitted for a time? Similar to working on a draft for a blog entry when you may start it, but not get it done until a later time. I hope this makes sense.
I just ran into a strange situation that I had my complete list entered and was about to place links to photos for a couple birds that needed confirmation, when a call from a friend came saying that she believes she was incorrect on the IDs she gave me yesterday. (What timing!) She had suggested yesterday to get a second opinion, which I did, but some markings she saw today changes the ID of the bird. So I am holding off until there is a certainty of the birds' identification.
I did not submit the list. Is there a way to save what I had done of those birds that were positively ID'ed? Then come back later to finish the list after there is no more question to their identity?
If there is not a way now , could there be in the future?
Thank you so much.

I would just remove the species that is in question and submit the checklist. Then when you’re ready to make edits, go to My eBird and then to “Manage My Observations” to open and edit the checklist. There is no direct ‘save’ feature that keeps a checklist in the middle stage, but it’s fine to submit and then edit later.

That's a good idea, I had not thought of it.
