Save Email Settings in Learning Assignment Drafts

Prior to this enhancement, if an administrator saved a learning assignment as a draft, any email settings configured for the draft assignment would NOT be saved to the draft. When the administrator edited the draft in the future, the email settings would need to be reconfigured before submitting the assignment.

With this enhancement, when an administrator saves a learning assignment as a draft, any email settings configured for the draft assignment are saved. When the administrator edits the draft in the future, their email configurations will display in the same state they were saved in. The administrator can then continue editing the assignment's settings if desired and submit the assignment.
