I have been requested to insert the following sentence by Development. It is
a description of the File, Save menu item:

Saves the task. If the task name is untitled, you cannot use this item until
you do a Save As and complete a standard Save As dialog box.

"Save the task. If the task is not named when Save is selected, you will need to
complete the Save As dialog box."

"Do a Save as," in my mind, is slang. Yes, I say it, but I wouldn't write it for
my users. Are your users able to understand this type of writing? Also, is
"task" the proper term? Do you mean "File"?
