Request option to turn off 'autosave' when writing messages please

Recommended Posts

Hello,

 

Could you please consider giving members the option to disable autosave - because frankly, I for one, would prefer not to have my drafts autosaved in this forum.

 

Thank you.

Hi ,

 

Thanks for the suggestion. This isn't currently possible, but it's something we could look into. Was there any specfic reason you wanted this option disabled?

Hi thanks for your response. My apologies for the delay in getting back to you.

 

I'd like autosave turned off, frankly because I don't like the idea that *all* my prior drafts (with all the typos, spelling mistakes and hastily thought out ideas which almost always accompany my first few drafts) are available for 'anyone behind the scenes' to see. That's baring a little too much for my liking... 'Permanent autosave' also means that I can never really delete a post on which I later change my mind about, which makes me more reluctant to contribute as much as possible.

 

Basically, I would turn off autosave, if I could, and then I'd feel far less shy about posting here.

 

Hopefully others won't be comfortable with autosave saving every single draft, warts 'n' all, every few seconds; and it'll be amended, to allow it to be disabled. Hmmm. Even writing now, it's very irritating to know that it's always saving almost every single sentence I write. No thanks!

 

Sincerely

HI tman,

 

Thanks for coming back to me, and highlighting your reasons. Unfortunately there isn't a way to turn this functionality off at present, but I've raised this for future consideration. 

 

Please note that we do not have direct access to view any of your 'Saved' drafts nor is there an easy way for us to retrieve these. The feature was just added for the benefit of members. However, I do take your points on board, and hope that you will still feel comfortable enough to participate within the IG Community.

 

Thanks,

Dan

    • Tesla's share price has had a pretty wild ride this year, but NIO isn't bad either, up 1,340% year-to-date. Historical price chart is on fire: https://trustedbrokers.com/uk/stocks/nio
    • all platforms are similar, learn one and the others are easier to learn, the IG web platform is more a dealing based platform rather than charting based such as mt4, the 3rd party PRT does a good job at being both. mt4 is free, there is a charge for PRT if low value use (just using for the extras rather than actually trading on). try PRT, IG should warn you in advance if they intend to start charging you for the use of.
