            Bug ID: 94042
           Summary: Improving autorecovery/autosave
           Product: LibreOffice
           Version: Inherited From OOo
          Hardware: Other
                OS: All
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: enhancement
          Priority: medium
         Component: ux-advise

It is always a problem when LO crashes that users will loose data and in order
to help reduce that large amount of lost data, i think we should change the
autorecovery from 15 minutes to 10.

We should also consider implementing a smart autorecovery algorithm that can
work within the set autorecovery time, so that if a user for example stops
working on a document for a given amount of time (e.g. 5 minutes), that it
smart autosaves. A similar algorithm would also be applied when LO has lost
focus from the user (e.g. he switches to his browser to grap a picture to add
to his document), that it smart autosaves after a given amount of time. There
are many possible scenarios when the smart autorecovery can kick and i think it
should possibly take into consideration the amount of time it last took to save
and autorecovery save. So if a user is working on a small document and
save/autorecovery last took 3 seconds, we could smart autorecovery save if a
user hasnt done anything in 1 minute, while if a user is working on a large
spreadsheet that takes 30 seconds to save/autorecovery, we could smart
autorevoery save if a user hasnt done anything in 5 minutes.

Also it would be useful to save a copy of the last autosaved document when a
user closing an application and says not to save the changes. I've personally
fallen victim to this because of the switching between windows and linux where
the buttons are in different places and also within LO itself as 4.0 has the
buttons as Save, Close without saving, Cancel, while master has it as Dont
Save, Cancel, Save.
