    This is a very basic and lacking "feature", much like the lack of Tables in Outlook (for Mac). Really MS?

    We see two patterns in this feedback thread and are addressing them now. The first pattern is that users want AutoSave OFF. The second pattern is that the Template scenarios are problematic with AutoSave.

    To address turning AutoSave OFF, we have implemented these capabilities:

    1. To avoid accidental edits by others, the owner of a file can set it to Always Open Read-Only. This can be done by setting the file to open in Read-Only Recommended (File > Info > Protect Document/ Workbook/ Presentation > Always Open in Read-Only) or by Sharing the file without allowing others to edit (File > Share > People with the link can edit > Uncheck the “Allow Editing” box).

    2. Users can turn AutoSave OFF for a file. While a document is open, clicking the AutoSave toggle turns AutoSave OFF for the current document for that user. The next time the same…

    You all know that you can DOWNLOAD the file and work on it offline and work as you always would have? Editing it from an ONLINE source is no different than how Google and other online collaboration platforms works.

    Also, if you make edits to a template file instead of copying that file to make a template in the first place that is absolutely YOUR fault!

    Don't like the Autosave feature? Then download the file, edit it and re-upload it, problem solved, and you can even name it "my file version 1.2" and ignore the fact that it versions it for you...

    Seriously, this is why we can't have nice things :(

    It's ridiculous how obfuscated Microsoft has made all their groups... why not simplify like Google did and just have type of group instead of having all these limitations and workaround on 4 different types of groups?
