AutoSave CC

Digitally signed app



Sometimes Autodesk® Revit® can “crash” without suggesting to the user to create a recovery file.  This can leave users facing a situation of emergency shutdown and loss of data. Whilst Autodesk® AutoCAD® has an auto-save feature, there is no such function in Revit.


With this plugin you can set specified intervals to auto-save, for example, you can specify an interval of auto-saving every 5 minutes and the plugin will automatically save your project every 5 minutes (completely without your participation). You can still make a “manual” file saving (the “Save” button) when you need it.


The backup files created during saving (files like “Project Name.001.rvt”) will be stored by default in the project directory. You then have an option to delete these backup files.


The plugin works with the following file types:

  • Project files (RVT)
  • Local copies of the central file (RVT)
  • Revit Family (RFA)
  • Project Template Files (RTE)

    Can you please remove the decimals for seconds in the countdown timer? The amount of movement on the screen is way more than necessary, very disturbing. Other than that, very nice!

  • Life Saver
    K Vigneshwar | September 14, 2023 Verified Download (What's this?)

    Considering how bad windows is at being stable, at the unfortunate event of your computer crashing and taking your unsaved Revit project with it, this add on comes in clutch. It feels a little too simple, but that's all it needs to be. Definitely would recommend everyone to get it.

  • A real Life Saver!
    Vin Sinha | June 01, 2023 Verified Download (What's this?)

    Two hours or work in Revit is a LOT OF WORK. Too bad i found out a bit too late. Autosave is a bit of a nuisance when it saves in the middle of your flow, but it is surely a life saver. I can trade that. Highly recommend this. 
    I hope you guys release 2024 version and stay ahead. 

  • AutoSAve by MLabs is a Life Saver
    Juan Carlos Arias | April 25, 2023 Verified Download (What's this?)

    I have been using this plug-in since April 18, 2023 and so far it Rocks!!

    I am not good at remembering to save over the course of a day's work, so I have lost many hours of work when Revit crashes. Even when the autosave reminder in Revit would prompt me to save I would cancel it because I was in the middle of a task.

    What I like about AutoSave by MLabs is that I can set up the save intervals and the AutoSave starts automatically even if I am in the middle of a command. It saves while freezing the command I am in and when the save process is completed, I am back in the command. I do not have to start the command over.

    I do not know if this happens to other users, but I have noticed this a few times. I would suggest looking into this feature to make sure it is consistent across all commands or processes the user may be doing. In other words, make it better if possible.

    AutoSave by MLabs is awesome!!

    I do not understand why Autodesk never bothered to have an Autosave feature in Revit as in AutoCAD

    Thank you so much for this plug-in MLabs.

    When I open the file have been working in revit it gets saved.

    Is there a way to remove that save once the file is opened?

    There are no changes to be saved. they were saved when the file was closed or at the last saved if there was no change after.

    Sometimes i open files for reference only so I do not  want to save them since it would indicate that a change to the file may have taken place.

    Thanks for your review and feedback. I will try to make the app better.

  • It can save your time
    Aleksei Vologdin | March 31, 2023 Verified Download (What's this?)

    Real time saver. Recommended for those who forgets to press a save button.

  • Great App for Saving
    Ehsan Al-Sharqawi | March 13, 2023

    Great App.

    How version 1.5.0 working with Revit 2022 for saving Local files?

    i tried but it is not saving!

    is it saving  only local files or saving local files and synchronizing to centeral also?

  • Simple and Effective
    Kristen Calle | March 06, 2023 Verified Download (What's this?)

    Works great. Lightweight, straighforward and does what it's supposed to... saves my project when I keep cancelling like an idiot!

  • Really Helpful
    Reyhan Raddityas | March 03, 2023 Verified Download (What's this?)

    For me its really helpful. Being able to save automatically, because sometimes revit did not backup or make recovery file.  

  • Language problem
    Mate Toth | February 12, 2023 Verified Download (What's this?)

    First of all. Thanks for the app. That would be very useful. Unfortunatelly the app does not work correctly when the language of Revit is not english. Could you please check the possibilities of solutions? Thank you very much.

    A Real Hair Saver

    Darn, to late. :)

  • Great Life Saver of an App
    Dustin Harrington | January 26, 2023 Verified Download (What's this?)

    The app does as expected. Saved me from lost work quite a few times. There's just one issue and it's not a deal breaker by any means. The app has a tendency to interrupt me while I'm in the middle of a task such as adjusting crop regions and I have to start that task over. If it is possible to have the app wait until a task such as that is completed, that would make this app perfect!

  • Always forgetting to save! This is a lifesaver!
    Cheraine Sodikromo | January 26, 2023 Verified Download (What's this?)

    I've had numerous times where I keep snoozing my 15 min. reminder. 

    Def. Recommend!!

  • Just What Was Missing
    Vassili Malgin | December 20, 2022 Verified Download (What's this?)

    Great stuff, just what I was after after losing hours of work and discovering there's no such function built into Revit. Only wish there was a way to specify a different backup folder to keep the main project folder clean. Otherwise perfect. Thank you.

  • a well needed app for everyone
    Stevan Orchard | September 09, 2022 Verified Download (What's this?)

    Works great but my only suggestion in when working on a working sharing file can it save only the local copy without resyncing to the central.  

    Manh Nguyen (Publisher) | October 11, 2022

    Thank you for your comments. The problem was solved in the latest version.

  • Great little app!
    Tim R | September 07, 2022 Verified Download (What's this?)

    Time saver, difinitely recomended, although not sure why but it runs twice once the time is set. Could be a bug.
