The Catalog workspace provides a new way to manage your item data. Item data for a product is attribute information that is common for all sellers, for example, brand name, color, material of a product. The Catalog section provides you a custom set of tools for prioritization, management, and enhancement of item data.
Drafts or Draft listings provide a new way to work with your listings through your Seller Central account. Any listings that do not meet listing policies at the time of submission will now be stored as drafts, so you can view and work on them at your convenience. These are saved in your account until you provide missing data or correct invalid data, at which time draft listings will be reprocessed.
The Complete drafts section under the Catalog menu is your workspace to view and take action on your draft listings. You can add missing data or correct invalid data for your drafts one at a time or in bulk (further details below). Additionally, you can always export an Excel file containing your draft listings and add data to those drafts while uploading the file to Seller Central. For more information, see Upload My Inventory File.
To take action on your drafts, you can utilize:

To add drafts using the Add a Product tool from the Complete drafts page:
You can add data to the attributes that we have identified and any other optional attributes using this form to re-upload your draft for processing.

Nothing, you can continue to submit bulk uploads and receive processing reports as you always have. However you would miss out on our new workspace, which improves your listing experience and makes it easier and less time consuming. With Drafts, you can always export all of your draft listings in a single listing template, add all of the necessary data to enable those listings on Amazon in that file, and resubmit to move your Drafts to Active status.
