Travel Forums System Talk Autosave in Map har boring usability

Hi,

is it possible to switch off autosave as default? This is a boring feature... when you add a new stop and you're not quick enough than dialog to add a new stop disappears and you can start again. So anytime when you add a new stop you have to disable autosave first.

AND

When you disable autosave and you switch e.g. to planner and than you go back to map you have to disable autosave again.

The usability of this feature in my opinion is a nightmare.

Hi,
The first stop is the tricky one. A kind of race against the autosave. If you loose you have to try again!
Then it is easier as the autosave do not erase anymore what you have entered.

Well that was interesting. I guess I never waited 30 seconds when creating new stops. I tend to be in testing mode and just type any old thing, so I never hit the autosave. I've fixed this bug now. There's no need for it to autosave until after you've actually added the stop, so that's what it will do now.

Kate, was this the main issue with autosave for you? Or is it also that it's too often or too intrusive?

Peter,
I have just tested with a new trip. The autosave function does not bother us anymore for the first stop. :)
But a new strange thing happens now with the stats:
I created a trip within 3 countries: France, Monaco, Italy. No problem when I do not use the transportation declaration: the 3 countries are counted.
As soon as I declare a transportation, let's say in Monaco, the country disappears fom the stats. :(
Not sure this is linked to your last modification.

I don't think it's linked, but that's an interesting observation. I'll check the logic in the code when the transportation is changed!
