Autosaving web forms
06 June 2005
I just wanted to iterate my pride in reaching a beta stage with the Autosave feature. This is for the IssueTrackerProduct which now makes it possible to seemlessly type away, close the browser and return to your half-finished form without losing "anything". The reason I'm putting "anything" in quotationmarks is that the autosave only happens every 8 seconds which means that if you're writing with lots of bad luck a lot in the last 8 seconds before you close/crash your browser you might loose a couple of words.
The complete feature isn't totally finished yet but having done it now for Add Issue and Quick Add Issue makes it promising for the followup forms. So far, no one has bother to report any negative feedback. I've asked friends to try it and people seem quite positively surprised that it works and works well.
