I have had lots of complaints from users that their changes are not being saved and it is beacuse they are navigating off the page before saving. Need a warning message when there are changes that have not been saved. This most often happend on Account and when adding tasks.

I agree! We run into this problem constantly. Our users switch off data entry duties and do it about once a month, so getting back in the swing of hitting "Save" all the time gets out of hand. All our other programs have autosave or a warning message if changes haven't been saved, and sometimes the entry process involves several levels of information that lead to confusion. We don't find out information is missing until it is needed. Please add this feature!

I agree that this is needed. There are countless times when I have altered a report, adding columns, formulas, groupings etc and it looks great and somehow I either navigated away from it or closed the window before saving. Pthotoshop has a perfect interface for this, just copy how Adobe has implemented it and reports would be much better.

I, too, have users migrating from systems that have implicit save - their entries are automatically being committed to the database, and have already lost entries by accidentally navigating away from the entry screen (either new or edit) because they simply haven't developed the habit to hit "Save". This can significantly impact user adoption, and we all want to see success, right?

So, first, let me add my voice to what is an apparently useless excercise that is designed to make us feel as if there is a modicum of interest in Customer Service on the part of Salesforce.
5 years running and no response?? To a request that is tops in the category, by a ridiculously wide margin at that?
This should be a B-School case study in how poor customer service in a growth revenue market creates opportunity costs that are not being measured. Imagine how much better the company could be doing if it did a better job of customer service.
That said, thank you to the posts a few months up. I will try the App Exchange and see if that works for me. In the meantime, note to Salesforce Customer Service Department: The chimpanzees have all apparently left the building. Why not head down t the local zoo and pick up a few more. Or maybe go out on a limb and hire a human beig perhaps?

It just happened to me again. I wrote a post and clicked on another spot on the page and lost the post because I didn't click on Post Your Comment first. ///////////
It isn't just the votes on this Idea it is the many other similar ideas that would all be fixed by a good fix here. Salesforse is supposed to be all about customer service but there isn't very much of it here. There are thousands of wasted hours and thousands of lost sales that result from the lost data, many times in the form of lost tasks and events that are missed. This fix is just too easy. It isn't sexy enough to get the attention of a programmer. It should get the attention of a product manager. The great thing about great software is that it doesn't cause any problems. This feature of this software does cause problems. If I had my choice I would use something else that doesn't have this flaw.
