Since you are working with a stack rather than a standalone, you can 
save the stack directly, often done in a closeCard or closeStack handler:

on closeStack
  save this stack
end closeStack

If many people share the same stack and you don't want to save the field 
contents within the stack itself, then yes, you'd need to write the info 
to either a preferences stack or a text file on their hard drive 
somewhere. If you need help with that, let us know.
