There's a few things in your design that can hamper UX. The most pressing one is your form structural layout. You currently have split your form into a left and right column.
Forms should never consist of more than one column. One of the problems with form fields in multiple columns is that your users are likely to interpret the fields inconsistently. If a form has horizontally adjacent fields, the user must scan in Z patterns, slowing the speed of comprehension and muddying the clear path to completion. But if a form is in a single column, the path to completion is a straight line down the page. Source.
A form is a conversation. This means you need to structure the form in a logical question/response manner. A way to do this is by clustering related fields. Your form seems to have a clear 'meeting details' and 'meeting results' structure. You can make it easier to scan the page if you cluster these topics accordingly.
Another thing: Your status message appears on the left, above the content of the left column. This implies it is connected to this content, when in reality it is a response to an action taken in the right column. Moving this to the top of the page will reinforce that the message applies to the entirety of the page, rather than only the left part.
If you want users to be able to save at any time, regardless where they're at in the form, you can opt for a sticky bar at the top featuring the controls to save, restore and delete drafts.
You can also choose to alter the appearance of the delete draft button, since that is an action that carries a bit more consequences. Now it appears the same as the rest. To avoid confusion or mistakes, you could change the look so it stands out better.
