It doesn’t take long for your TikTok draughts folder to fill up with failed attempts, outtakes, and other videos you’d rather not share. Over time, that can cause problems with your phone’s storage capacity, so you may want to clear out your TikTok draughts every so often. All it takes is a few taps on your iPhone or Android device.
Tutorial on making a rough cut for TikTok
- Roll out TikTok.
- To access the camera menu, press the plus button.
- Use the pink record button to shoot video, or choose an existing clip from your library to upload.
- Click the pink checkbox, then click “next.”
- Then, save it as a draught by tapping the “Drafts” button, located in the bottom left of the screen.
- After you’ve finished editing your video, it’ll be stored in a separate tab at the very top of your profile page.

Gains from archiving in-progress videos on TikTok
Saving TikTok draughts has several advantages for businesses, organisations, and individuals:
Create a post-approval workflow inside the app. Instead of scheduling or publishing content immediately, save draughts when managing a client’s TikTok account. In this way, your client can exercise full editorial control over the content they wish to see live on their site.
Insist on following brand safety regulations. Do not risk violating TikTok’s Community Guidelines by publishing content before reviewing it by saving it as a draught first. Keep in mind that it’s preferable to add another step in your content review process rather than having to deal with restoring a banned TikTok account. (Required Reading: Unban Yourself from TikTok)
Increase the complexity of your content. You can create a draught in TikTok and return to it at a later time. If you make your videos on TikTok, this gives you the freedom to focus on more complex projects.
Get your material together ahead of time. Make multiple videos for TikTok and save them as draughts so you’ll always have something new to share with your viewers. Another option is to use Vista Social to schedule the optimal times for posting your TikTok content.

I need to find your TikTok draughts folder.
Your TikTok draughts will be saved in a folder called “Profile” within the app.
Start the programme up and select “Profile” from the drop-down menu. The ‘Drafts’ section of your profile feed should be prioritised.
Be aware that while the TikTok app is required to view draughts, the video files themselves are stored locally. If you sign in from a different computer, you won’t see them there.

TikTok: How to Save Drafts
Tap the “Next” button at the bottom of the editing screen to save your work in progress before you close TikTok.
Captioning, hashtagging, tagging, and adjusting other settings are all great ways to increase the visibility of your content on TikTok (comments, duets, links, etc.). Everything you need to do to complete your post can be done at a later time, so don’t worry about it now.
To save your work in progress, select “Drafts” from the page’s navigation bar.

Guide to Revising Your TikTok Videos
Your saved draughts can be accessed through your profile and edited there. To make changes to a previously saved TikTok, simply locate and select it. This will launch the TikTok post editor with the rough cut of the video.
Put TikTok’s extensive set of editing tools to good use and liven up that draught.
A few of the toys in your toolbox are:
- Cut threads and fasten clips. The video editor allows you to insert new clips, remove unnecessary ones, change the playback speed, and much more.
- Stickers. Emojis, user mentions, polls, geotagging, and even photo overlays are all at your disposal.
- Effects. Edit your video with various filters and effects to emphasise or change the tone.
- Captions that update themselves mechanically. Quickly add AI-powered captions to your content to improve user comprehension.
Equipment for manipulating sound is available. Voiceovers, noise cancellation, and the latest in audio effects are just the beginning.
