    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.

    It shocks me there aren't more votes for this. Stream has the potential to really fill the training gap without much additional work on our parts. Upload videos, attach a default watchlist for a channel, send users to that channel..... done.
