    I agree too!
    Date is a too important information to be treated stupidly. We need the information of LAST MODIFICATION (and not last opening)
    A file is not only used to be modified, it is also used to be consulted and the date is crucial information when dealing with a lot of similar-different files.

    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…

    I read this: "change the way you work"
    I'll be curious how you can change today the way you worked 10 years ago ? We have thousands of files in a tree structure and the dates are crucial information. Intelligence is thinking different ways of working and proposing tools that take this diversity into account.

    Autosave is a very big problem when using the date system to sort between file versions. We can no longer trust the dates because as soon as the file is opened, it is automatically saved and the date overwritten. This is incredibly stupid and causes serious issues.
