Auto Save

edited 12/09/19 in Smartsheet Basics

I just noticed that all of my sheets are  now auto saving.

When did this start?

Not sure if this is a good thing or bad thing.

    It's an option under the settings.

    Auto-save settings

    • Auto-save after 1 minute of inactivity: Select this option to have Smartsheet automatically save any edits every [x] minutes of inactivity. Click 1 minute to edit the save frequency to 1, 2, 3, 5, or 10 minutes.
    • Auto-save my changes when I leave a sheet or report: Select this option to have Smartsheet automatically save any edits when you close a sheet or report's tab, switch to another tab, or log out of Smartsheet.

    Please see the attached link/screenshot.

    I hope this helps you!

  • Hi,

    If I'm a system admin, is it possible to set the default settings for new users when they're created?

    Hi @Brian Oakey

    The auto-save settings are personal per-account and currently aren't able to be configured by the System Admin. (Please submit an Enhancement Request to provide your feedback to our Product team about this!)

    You can review some of the System Admin actions in our Help Center on the Admin Center (see here).



  • I noticed that I cannot undo a change after an autosave.
