"Editing" category and visual clarification for items with in-progress edits

This came up the other day when I was looking for a particular password on a server. I knew I had put the password into the server entry, but I couldn't find it, either looking at the item or by searching. After several minutes of wondering if 1Password had lost my password, I realized that the server in question had unsaved edits that had not been saved last time I had quit the app. One click of the "Resume Editing" button later and I was back in business. I saved the edits properly and was happy once more. Since the Resume Editing button blends in quite well, it's easy to miss.

Ideally, there should be a way to find these items quickly. I would like to have a Category (possibly highlighted in a bright, visible color in the sidebar) that only appears when there are items with unsaved changes. Additionally, on the item itself, it would be nice if there was a highlight, similar to that of the Vulnerability Alert, where it highlights the fact that there are unsaved changes. Highlighting the Resume Editing button in a bright color would probably be a sufficient visual cue as well. Finally, this could also be a Smart Folder criterion, although I believe it's useful enough to have a dedicated Category as well.

    Hi @Rainman_Noodles,

    Totally agreed and we will improve this, we definitely need to make this better because as you said, it looked like you lost the data. Not only that, you’re forced to go back to the original source of the data to resume the edit in order to save it since they’re not sync’ed.

    Unfortunately, I don’t have a timeframe on this but we will fix this.

    Thanks for sharing your feedback with us and I’ve added it to our tracker on this issue.

    That is also in the tracker for the suggestions on how to improve this.

    Again, thanks!
