The application will automatically trigger a File.Save event on an open document if changes to that document are outstanding after n minutes since the last save -- where n is a user-specified value in the application's configuration.
1 Open document
2.Record modification time
2 Make change to document
3 Wait n minutes
4.Observe modification time. It should be later than the time recorded in step 2.
Document has been saved. To confirm, attempt to close the document. If the document closes without complaint and then reopens with the changes in place then the autosave has been successful.
User Profile Reset: No
Autosave is a long story. Please have a look at this bug report: https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=65509
Closing as duplicate.
