When posting to a discussion board in Blackboard, you will see that you have a "save draft" button located next to your "submit" button. 

Save draft button in Blackboard discussion board post

If you begin to create your post and need to step away, you can click to "save draft" and Blackboard will save what you have entered for you to go back to later and finish.

**Keep in mind that your response will not post until you click the Submit button. 

Once you save your draft, you can get back to it by clicking in to the specific discussion board forum/topic you were working in and choosing Drafts Only from the Display drop-down function (located on the top right side of the page directly above the listing of other published posts).
