For my company, the rad editor is currently used and the users are required to enter all the data in one session. Now the users would like to be able to save their changes in several sessions and not generate the document until all the data has been entered.
I see that the rad editor has 'track changes'. However I am not certain this is exactly what they want to see.
Is there a way for a user to 'save' changes and another way for the user to actually submit their changes so that a document can be generated when needed using the radeditor and/or some other Telerik tool? If so, would you tell me what you recommend and how would I accomplish that goal?
If not, would the 'track changes' or some other feature accomplish my goal?
Thanks for letting me know what you recommend?

Thank you for contacting us.
Helpful information on how to implement auto save functionality can be found in the following online example Editor - Auto Save Content
I hope that you will find the information helpful.
Thank you for your answer so far!
However I have the following additional questions to ask you which are:
1. I like the idea of the auto-save. However I do not see how this auto-save is implemented.. What needs to be setup for the autosave to work? How is the data saved to the database? What 'connections' or wiring needs to be setup?
2. You mentioned that I made need an 'upgrade to ASP.NET AJAX, WPF or WinForms projects'. I am using the most current version of the radeditor. Thus why would I need to upgrade these other items?
The Auto Save Content example describes how the editor content can be sent to the server on a specific time interval by using an asp:Timer control. It does not explain how to save it in the database. You can see how the content is saved in external sources in the following examples.
Editor - Save in Database
Editor - Save in External File
On your second question: 2. You mentioned that I made need an 'upgrade to ASP.NET AJAX, WPF or WinForms projects'. I am using the most current version of the radeditor. Thus why would I need to upgrade these other items? - In my previous post I do not suggest upgrades of any kind. The functionality you described does not depend on the version of Telerik UI for ASP.NET AJAX because it is not present in the RadEditor control. The developer can get or set the content in the editor by using its Content property. The answers of the questions "How is the data saved to the database?" and "What 'connections' or wiring needs to be setup?" depend on the application infrastructure and are not related the the editor itself. Actually Telerik provides professional services and training for your most difficult projects. More information about this can be found here http://www.telerik.com/professional-services.
We are trying to edit a document inline/online without importing / downloading the document like pdf / word.
We have opened the word document in a rad editor and we were able to do some changes but cannot save it. There is a provision to export but not to save. Can you help us over here.
The changes need to be updated/Overridden (or) even it would be fine if it creates a new document(docx).
You can learn how to how to save the editor's content to a file on the server and prevent it from being sent to the client at OnExportContent.
