#TipOfTheDay Enable Auto-Save in Lotus Notes

How to enable Auto Save of every Lotus Notes document open in edit mode (which of course includes draft messages):

The steps:

1.        go to the File menu,
2.        choose Preferences,
3.        go to the Basic Notes Client Configuration option,
4.        Check the box for Autosave,
5.        enter how many minutes you would like Lotus Notes to autosave your documents for you.

Figure 1: the Enabling the Autosave option in Lotus Notes preferences

Enable Autosave in Lotus Notes preferences

Now Lotus Notes will automatically save a backup copy of every document you have in edit mode every ... minutes.

To recover Autosaved documents, use the File -> Autosave -> Recover...  menu option.

Matt, thanks for the reminder. Had just set Notes 8.5.4 CD4 up on my new Mac, and had forgotten to set this - you rock, you yellow dude, you :-)

Hey Mat,

Do you know if autosave can be enabled for webmail in IBM Notes 9?
