Microsoft Dynamics CRM – CRM 2013 Disable Auto Save

Within CRM 2013 the auto save feature is enabled by default. With auto save enabled there
is no Save button displayed in the command bar on the form. Records that have changed data are automatically saved every 30 seconds or when the user navigates to a new record.

Can I disable auto save?

The auto save behavior within CRM 2013 can be disabled at the organisation level within the  System Settings or at the form level via JavaScript code.

Make sure you check out the SDK for CRM 2013 to work with the auto save functionality with CRM 2013.

    Do you know if there is a way to undo an automatically saved change? I changed a value of an input field accidentally, CRM then saved it. Now I don’t know how to go back to the original value as I don’t know what the value was. Many thanks

      There is no undo. Once the field loses focus it is ready to be saved. Do you have auditing turned on for the entity? You could check the audit history (if possible).

        Hello, yes thanks, eventually I found the old values in the audit and was able to type them back into the form.

        Not the most user friendly solution I must say, and obviously not an option for normal users who don’t have access to the audit.
