Is it possible to save a file to multiple locations EVERY time someone amends it? At my office we share docs and 6 people can edit the same doc. I want to be able to create a backup of the file to a diff folder every time someone makes a change and saves it. It has to be a diff folder because the file is too big to put a backup in the same location. Can someone help please? Thanks

Hi,

I may offer you my solution called SOS Click for Microsoft Office. It is available at https://www.sos-click.com and works with Word, Excel and PowerPoint and allows you to save to several places in one click. It also allows you to auto-save every X minutes (up to 60). It can also attach a time-stamp to the filename so you can distinguish between different versions of the same spreadsheet. Hope this helps.
