Please fix the autorecover feature.
Both my computers fail to save autorecover files for Excel in version 16.9 (though fine for Word) and when crashes occur the "recovered" files are in fact the last files I manually saved, though sometimes with "(version 1)" added to the filename at the top of the window.
For a productivity application, a non-working autorecover feature is terrible.
The AutoSave option isn't much of a substitute as it only seems to work with files opened from OneDrive online, not the OneDrive or any other folder on the Mac itself.

YES!!! I just submitted the same problem. Horrible product management.
I just had a similar experience this morning and lost a day's work. Ridiculous!
Javed you've summed this up perfectly. it's terrible that the flagship product from Microsoft doesn't have a way of automatically saving files (other than the online only autosave feature). Of course maybe its something funny with my installation, would be nice to know!
