Access 2013 web app: Logout inactive user

    Question

  • Is there a way in web apps to automatically log the user out of their microsoft account after a designated period of inactivity? I have a hard link to the logout page, which automatically logs a user out, and I currently use this in a "logout" link. But, I cannot yet find a way to tie this to a specified period of inactivity.

    Any solutions/suggestions would be appreciated!

  • There is no built-in way to do that. There are also no timers which would make it hard to create something yourself. You would be able to write some code that kicks the user out after the first activity after an idle period, but that's not what you were asking about.

    This is what I suspected. Can I suggest to the web app developers that they add some sort of support for this in the near future? From a security standpoint, logging out inactive users is very important for my organization.
