I am currently implementing some Powerview in excel that is used on sharepoint online. My problem is that I can't get excel web app to save automatically when something is changed in excel web app only when it is saved in the real client, what am I missing?

When this is done, it works like a charm. But I don't use Power View - which I'm afraid to say isn't supported:

Reference: Power View in Excel on Office 365 or in SharePoint Server
