It is my understanding to disable auto save, each user would need to disable it when they open a file, is that correct?  I.T. has found that when auto save is on, we are experiencing issues with saving to SharePoint, but if auto save is off, we have been unable to recreate the usual saving issues we have been seeing on SharePoint.  I.E. the "Saving" not going away, or it says saved but still says it was unable to upload.

So what I am trying to do is find a way that when the users start to open files, they do not need to go into file / options / save and uncheck the auto save features.  

Was hoping by me doing it to a file that same option would stick for the file when another opens it but appears not.

 

Really need a way to avoid auto save from running when the excel file is opened.  Even if it is a VBA code to disable auto save when the file launches?  But rather not add more code if there is another way to do it
