The “Save as draft?” checkbox prevents the uploaded episode from going live immediately. When activated, the episode will only be added as draft to your podcast’s episode list on Captivate without actually publishing it.

In the “Episode Type” drop-down menu, select the episode type to mark this podcast as in feeds and some apps. Normal episodes are considered regular content, while trailer and bonus episodes may be displayed differently.
