Mac Windows Office AutoSave not Working

Why is the AutoSave button not working?

It seems like the autoSave option only works for the files that are stored in OneDrive. Make sure that you have stored the file in the Cloud.

How to enable this option

Just go to File and Save a copy in OneDrive. Once you do that you will see a message: "AutoSave is On - We are automatically saving your changes for you."
