Currently, if an instructor types out an assignment comment in the Speedgrader, forgets to click 'submit', and then navigates to the next student, the comment is saved as a draft. It allows the instructor to move on and the alert that the comment was auto-saved as a draft pops up as green on the next page. This alert seems to be overlooked or missed by instructors. I have observed an increase of these draft comments after-the-fact, where it looks like the instructor thought they posted their comment, but it is saved as a draft and/or the student would reply asking for feedback on the assignment because they cannot see the draft. Is there a way to change this process so that it is clear that they did not post their comment yet; for example, not letting them navigate away from the page until they confirm?
