Possibility to disable 'Auto Save' feature inside of the Form Builder

    Jotform is great but I really dislike the "auto save" feature.  I have never seen another application or piece of software that "auto saves" work in process.  It especially poses a problem when unintended changes are automatically displayed on internet form. 

    I understand that you can go back to previous versions but this is a poor work around.  I'm sure others are like me that may experiment with their form and then decide not to make the changes permanent.  I also understand that you can clone the form and work on "possible" changes but again this is a poor work around.

    I would hope that in the future Jotform would look at incorporating a save button and get away from "auto save" feature.

    Another solution might be for a setting in user profile to turn off the "auto save" feature so that users who like this feature can still use it; users who have "auto save" turned off would then have a button displayed to save work.

    I'm wonder how the rest of the Jotform community feels about this.
