What is Explicit Save?
Explicit Save is a data-saving feature that requires the user to state that the data needs to be stored in the memory. Explicitly saved forms can be saved by clicking a submit button while focusing on an input.
An explicit save provides an explicit result guided by a specific, precise user action, such as clicking the Save button. Because the action is initiated with explicit user intent, explicit writes to a persistent store such as a database or file can overwrite any previous explicit saves.
Because the action is initiated with clear user intent, explicit save writes to a persistent store such as a database or file that can overwrite any previous explicit saves.
An explicit save usually works across the page: all user data displayed on the page is saved together in a persistent store (barring any runtime exceptions). It is very important to use clear, consistent, and clear UI labels on the explicit save button.
