    With Minecraft:EE moving to iOS and becoming multi-platform and more mobile, this would be fantastic! It would increase teacher and student productivity and open up a new world of possibilities!

    It would be great to save not only worlds, but also a code, when you are programming.

    It would be very helpful when all Worlds would be saved to One DRive automatically!
    This would be a big improvement!

    Hi all, I'm teaching kids in Israel.
    Also for us - it will be wonderful if all - worlds + code - are saved for a user, so they'll be available for him/her on every computer she/he signs in from.

    A colleague of mine had to reset his iPad, and thus lost his classroom world. Saving to OneDrive, or even better Sharepoint, would save a lot of people from a lot of pain.

    I've made an instruction for this in swedish if someone is interested.

    @johan: that's nice, but I guess you'll have to do this every time you've played? I want my world to be saved and used directly from OneDrive.. 🤔

    Carl Andreas Myrland That would be super, but in the meantime I guess you just have to do it manually.

    OR you use a Mac och PC as the hub and set the autosave to your OneDrive. Then the students can just jump in via local LAN. Not a great solution and it has a lot of limitations, but doable,

    I want to make the auto save to my Google Drive folder...

    Any ideas how to save the save location.

    Last storm I lost my PC... Hard Drive fried... If this was backed up to Drive through File Stream... I would still have all of the classroom worlds.  HELP!

    If your students have a dedicated account such as a school email they can use that to login to devices at home.

    Please add the functionality/ability so that users can toggle Automatic world saves to OneDrive. This would be very helpful for teachers, especially when their device is lost/damage and entire classes lose their collaborative worlds.

    I am going to add to this because we are really running into A LOT of issues with needing this. We are a blended device district, and particularly on our Chromebooks, we are having students lose worlds and work because the Chromebook storage has to be cleared regularly. They need to the ability to allow these files to save to OneDrive instead of locally. As we all know, the save process for a backup to OneDrive is very cumbersome - especially for our youngest students, and the versioning history can be very confusing.

    I second the fact that it would be helpful and that and with this, it could fix a few problems that my students have. I have given them a project to work on and some of them end up returning to me and saying that all their project has been lost, when I checked it truly had been lost and that they have to redo the project ending up with the due date having to be extended. Can you please find a way to save it to an open-source area for the students?

    May I make  recommendation? Since students log in using their 365 account information, what if there was a, "email this world to me" button on the "manage" option? It would work like a back-up, and it would avoid the sign-in problems which can easily arise on shared iPads. (Our iPads are very persnickety about whether or not they remain signed to certain accounts or not. However the email address which is used for sign in would be entered every time, and internet access would definitely be available.))

    That indeed would be very helpful.

    That would be helpful but except more schools have chrome books and laptops so it would be easier to save to google drive

    Plus they already have google classroom

    This has been one of the most requested feature for the teachers we're helping, so that they can do or continue building world from Laptop to Mobile Phone.

    I hope this would be like a word document online that i can easily share the world with other students or teachers, or eventually will have an option to edit and Explore only mode. Like conducting Virtual Field Trips
