Chapter 3. Working with Project Options > Setting the Save Options

Setting the Save Options

The Save options allow you to define where Project will save projects by default, the default format it will use to save projects, and whether it should autosave projects. It's important to note that although Autosave can prevent lots of frustration over lost data, many users choose to keep it turned off because they might not want their edits to be saved automatically, such as when working with “what if” scenarios. Therefore, autosave is disabled by default, but you can enable it here and define how often and for which projects it will save. You can also define whether you should be prompted before each save.

Set Save Options

For nearly all users, the default of Project (*.mpp) is the best choice for the Save Microsoft Office Project option. It defines which file format Project will default to when saving a new project.

To edit which folders Project uses to save project and template files, select one of the entries in the list and click the Modify button.

Use this option to tell Project to save your project every few minutes.

Use this option to tell Project to save the full set of timephased data to the database tables.
