CRM 2013 Auto Save RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi Guys,

    I have a question regarding CRM 2013 Auto Save . I am using CRM 2013 Online Instance. Auto Save is Disabled across the system. But if Open a record e.g Lead  and I do a change (I haven't still clicked on the Save Button)  and then go back to the Grid View (without saving the record) it will saves the changes I did.

    It doesn't make much scene . In 2011 if we do the same process I will get a Warning Message stating I am exiting the form without saving . Is there any setting i need to do to disable this feature .

  • Even when you've disabled autosave - it still fires when closing a windowed record or navigating off a record. There isn't any setting to change this functionality.

  • I have not tried this with the auto-save feature now. But the idea is

    1. Attached Form unload event through script.

    2. In the script check for isDirty and take necessary action.

    I am just not sure if the auto save happens before unload.

  • In the CRM 2013 SDK, there's an example of the JavaScript needed to disable the auto-save on close option.

  • And in the next UR this will be fixed:


    •   Disabling Auto-Save does not disable Auto-Save when you try to navigate away from a form before you save the form.
