Windows 7: How to autosave a shared network 2013 excel file

How to autosave a shared network 2013 excel file

We created an Excel shared file where multiple users can access it on the server, make any edits, then they manually save their changes so that others (after they also manually save the same file) can see those changes.
Since one of the computers is hooked up to an office large screen, we want that file which is being shown on the large screen to automatically save (thus seeing any changes made by others) without having to go to that computer and manually saving (thus updating the file) every 5 minutes or so.
I tried various settings on that PC linked to the large monitor in the options section under Save, but nothing seems to work, forcing me to actually do a manual save every 5 minutes or so.
Can this be done automatically on that PC hooked to the large monitor without having someone do this manually at that PC every 5 minutes or so (or whatever interval time period somebody decides to do this)?
Please assist if at all possible; thank you very much.
