Ability to save workflow despite errors

Issue: can't save a flow when their are errors.

 

use case: When building a flow, I sometimes copy another flow and update the necessary stages.  Thereby saving myself the hassle of recreating the entire workflow.  However, since you can't save a workflow with errors, you need to make all of the edits in one session rather than saving with errors and being able to incrementally correct as time permits.  Very frustrating!

 

Solution: Allow saving but prompt with something like "this flow contains errors do you still want to save?" if there are errors.

Same here. I can not use many hours to make just one flow, but when I leave web browser some hours for other tasks, page was died and I have to recreate it from zero. And again...

 

The feature is needed what is just save flow even error are exist.

Error check feature needed when enable flow, I think.

 

I think change function is better like below.

1. When saving enabled flow was edited, the flow status should be changed to disabled.

2. Saving flow not check error. But it is good to make optional function "save & enable flow" what will do both of save and enable flow (it will check error exist or not).

3. After saving flow, enabling flow will check error.
