After you finish recording an interview using the StoryCorps App, it will continue to appear as a draft in the app until you've published it to archive.storycorps.org. Your interview may also be appearing as a draft because the initial upload of your interview to archive.storycorps.org failed. Interview drafts appear next to your published interview collection on the profile tab in the app.
If your initial upload was not successful, you can simply try to publish your interview from the app again. If you don’t want to publish your interview to archive.storycorps.org (or continue to have issues publishing your interview), we strongly recommend creating a backup of your interview audio. You can learn more about how to create a backup of your interview audio if you don’t want to upload it to the online archive in the Help Center article below.
Please Note: In 2022, we launched a new version of the StoryCorps App and this article relates to the latest version. If you need to figure out which version you’re on or find support materials for Version 1, please take a look at the Help Center article below.
