Re: Autosaving

Hey @mandy65, while Aleksandr’s hint should be helpful (i.e. you can save your files in Dropbox), let me briefly add to that pointer that you can add Dropbox as a place if your inquiry pertains to the Microsoft Office Suite. 
From there Mandy, I’m not aware of a global setting that will default the Save location to Dropbox across platforms, however I’d suggest having a look at our app integrations that may come handy in regards to what you have in mind. Additionally, we’re also here in case further assistance is needed in any way; please let us know if that’s what you’re looking for or if you have more questions & it’ll be a pleasure to further clarify matters. Thanks for checking in with us & enjoy the rest of your day!
