The draft feature was discussed a lot here and in other posts, but I didn't see much talk about the OP's mention of being able to have multiple.

Optionally, allow multiple draft questions and a page to edit/delete them.

I think the draft feature where it autosaves and stores it server-side is great, but in most things where they have a draft feature (like email clients), they allow you to have multiple drafts (also stored server-side). The expiration can even work the same as it does for the single draft system right now.

You wouldn't even need full page to store them, I think the user profile page could have a tab for it like it currently has for answers, questions, and everything else.

It could look very similar to how questions look, with it's title and tags listed there.

    This is not a duplicate. The other one asks for a list of existing drafts, this one here asks to have more than a single draft per site. Reopened. – Shadow Wizard Aug 15 '16 at 6:55

    As I mentioned in chat, while this isn't a critical feature, it would be a nice 'quality of life' improvement. – Steven M. Vascellaro Jun 7 '17 at 19:29

While this isn't a critical feature, it would be a nice 'quality of life' improvement.

Strangely enough, the Stack Exchange mobile app does allow users to store multiple drafts at once. You can even view all your drafts from each SE site simultaneously.

Viewing multiple drafts on iOS

It seems bizarre that my iPhone has a perfectly good system for drafting, saving, and managing multiple questions and answers, yet I can only save a single question per-site using my desktop.

Few things are more annoying than accidentally overwriting a lengthy, detailed post, because you forgot to save the question to an external site.

    that could be an app local feature. The website stores drafts server side. – rene Jun 7 '17 at 19:15
