Do Google Sheets Automatically Save? (2024 Update)

Do Google Sheets Automatically Save?

Yes, Google Sheets automatically saves any changes you make to a document as you work. This feature is part of Google Drive's suite of productivity tools, which includes Docs, Sheets, and Slides. The auto-save function ensures that your work is saved in real-time to Google's servers, which eliminates the need for manual saves and reduces the risk of data loss due to computer crashes or other issues.

You can see the status of the auto-save feature at the top of the document window, where it typically shows "All changes saved in Drive" when your work is up to date.
