Session Time out

I've just lost an hour's worth of work because of this moronic 'feature' that kicks in regardless of whether or not I'm actually interacting with the programme. There are threads stretching back to last year asking MS to do something about this and as far as I can seee the only change is to slightly increase the time limit before you are arbitrarily booted from the session.

And no, I can't use Autosave because it a janky piece of garbage that slows the web browser editor down and besides, I don't necessarily want every change saved every few seconds. Are we in any danger of getting any answer on this or is it another one for the development's massively long ignore list?

Re: Session Time out

Hi RS,


There is an idea submitted on this topic already, please check it at here:


It seems that PGs are looking into lifting the session duration limit, but for now as a temporary workaround, please enable the Auto save so that you won’t lose changes you have made on your app.


Best regards,
