I have a CMS system I'm implementing using Polymer/Material Design.

Due to a number of factors, changes made to the content cannot be applied immediately, the user must make a set of changes and then "Save" them to the backend.

The CMS currently looks like this:

enter image description here

I can't find any guidance in the Material Design guidelines on where to put such a button.

Is there any? Or should I just add a button at the bottom of the window as you would in any other CMS?

This is from the material design guideline:

Persistent footer buttons If your app requires actions to be persistent and readily available to the user, consider using the floating action button. Alternatively, consider persistent footer buttons, which are also easily accessible.

Example of persistent footer buttons

  • +1 I agree they should be placed at the bottom, and preferably always visible if the form can be saved at any time.
