The following changes have been made to the user interface of oPOS within release 6.0.1000:
- A session timeout message now appears after a user has been inactive for 55 minutes. This message prompts the user either to log out or to continue using oPOS before the session times out. This feature helps to prevent users from losing their progress by continuing to use oPOS while their session is timed out.
The session timeout modal window contains a 5-minute countdown timer. If the user does not select an option before 5 minutes have elapsed, they will be signed out automatically and re-directed to the login screen.
- The user being signed out and re-directed back to the login screen is an enhancement from the previous functionality of the system displaying the time-out popup and expiring, but not signing out the user. This prevents users from continuing the work on an expired file and encountering a 'save error' when attempting to save. If the loan file is being worked on the user will encounter "Loan Locked / Read Only" functionality.
oPOS considers a user ‘inactive’ if they have not have not changed pages or clicked on any tabs, menus, or buttons for one hour. Every time a user takes one of these actions in oPOS, this internal timer is reset. After 55 minutes of inactivity, the session timeout modal window appears in order to alert the user that their session is about to expire.
The user can continue to use oPOS continuously for a maximum of 24 hours. After 24 hours of activity, the user will be logged out automatically.
