How to stop being logged out of Quickfile after short periods of inactivity

Hi people. Please can anyone advise on how to stop Quickfile logging me out after short periods of inactivity?
Although the system certainly helps my productivity, I seem to have to waste quite a bit of time logging in every time I what to use the system… sometimes 6 or seven times a day and often I have only been away from the screen for a little while. Many thanks!

Hi @jewel001

The system will always log you out after a certain period of activity, mainly for security. I believe this is currently set to around 3 hours. So as long as a page is viewed (even simply refreshing the page) will prevent you from being logged out.

Unfortunately, there is no way to prevent this from happening.

If you have a power subscription I suppose you could add a custom JavaScript that does

setTimeout(function() {
  window.location.reload(true);
}, 3600000);

This will make the page reload if it hasn’t been touched in an hour.

But then there’s arguably a good reason to let the session expire if you haven’t touched it for a while, it depends whether anyone else has access to the machine you’re using.

Thanks for quick responses and good information. Much appreciated!
