The OME performs an automatic Quick Save on open records every 10 minutes, in addition to any manual Quick Save actions you perform yourself. If your session is terminated due to a loss of connection to the server, you may lose metadata entered since the last system or manual Quick Save.

Aside from loss of connection to the OME server, an additional known cause is browser incompatibility. A primary reason we discourage the use of Internet Explorer for the OME is that IE's code libraries are outdated, as the browser is no longer being updated by Microsoft. As a result, a number of functions requiring button clicks or selections no longer work in the OME; you may be able to log in and do some work, but not successfully Save any of it. For this reason, Internet Explorer should not be used when accessing the OME. We strongly recommend that users work in Chrome when doing work in the OME.
