Requested draft feature: something to indicate completed.

Service: Narrative

Along the same lines as my other suggestion of needing some organization mechanisms, here are two things that can really help make the draft management nice and tidy, and easy to determine what to work on.

1. implement a completed check mark: this very simple feature would just make the user experience, much more appealing, and somewhat satisfiying for when you return back to you posts page.

2. A date box. Even if it isn't an automated post feature, just being able to put in as a note, the date you intend to post creates a content calendar for people. Immensely helpful.

Thanks for considering.

Just to add up to point 2, and as posted on an old forum thread: I'd love to have a date box that can auto-publish posts when said date is reached. And for it to also support past dates, which are useful for older and imported content to indicate that it's not new and/or exclusive to Narrative. 

This helps the completed check mark box. but not totally. A person still may not know when they want to auto post for, but would like to see at a glance what is done, with final edits....I personally find myself opening drafts over and over again because I can't remember if i finished and edited or not. Plight of the middle-aged and up.

I have a few things that should be specifically published in September, October, and before Thanksgiving in my drafts right now. (There will be more! But I'm still going through old content to repurpose, so now I have Children's Eye Health Month, Diabetes Awareness Month, and something about Thanksgiving.)

Supporting past dates would be amazing, too, as I have things I'd written way back in 2006 and up that have required some editorial notation to let people know the personal narrative is not current even if the topic I wrote about is fairly evergreen.
