SharePoint document saving issue

Alex Mathew 6 Reputation points


We have a document stored in SharePoint online document library with only one field "Title" also not required field. If we open the document in online then we are able to edit and document auto saves without any issue. But, when we open the document in desktop app then a message appearing saying "Required Properties: To save to the server, correct the invalid or missing required properties", even though there are no required field still we supply the values to save the document but it just doesn't save the document instead keep displaying the message with "Retry save". May I know the reason why it is doing that. Appreciate your help!

    @Alex Mathew ,

    When we open the document in desktop app, click File> Info to check if there is any required property with asterisk.

    If so, please fill in the property then compare the result.
