Aveva PDMS Auto Save Function

The PDMS Auto Save Function already includes in version PDMS 12. I think this function not recommended to be used in big collaborate work if no notification to save. Usually when 3d designer work and the model finish yet but suddenly have been saved. What happen ? effect can not be undo, in my opinion.

But do not be panic because the PDMS Auto Save Function will display a confirmation form when autosave execute and you can ignore that.
