Let us save flows even if they have errors as long as they're not enabled.

I just spent time working on a flow, and then it failed to save because of an outage on your end in terms of the connectors. Meaning the only option I have to preserve my work is to keep the tab open and hope windows update doesn't restart my computer and that my browser doesn't crash. Otherwise I have to start from scratch. 

 

As long as the flow isn't set to enabled, there's literally no reason to not allow us to save.  It's anti-user design.

Wait, you're a Microsoft employee... Surely you could just send the devs an email to give them a hint? 👀

I 100% support this. I get to a stopping point due to whatever, but I have an incomplete step that I have to either complete the arguments or delete before switching to new task. 9/10 I just delete the step and it seems like it is always some Create item action in SharePoint with several fields each with separately Composed parameters - I audibly groan and pray I made good notes on the compose actions before deleting the action and then Save.

YES!  Sometimes when I am creating a complicated flow I know it is not quite right but I need to take a break or quit for the day and because of unresolved "errors" I am unable to save.  I have to delete a bunch of work so I don't lose the whole thing.
