I have a requirement to show a dashboard style app using PowerApps connecting to data held in SharePoint Online.
As this is a dashboard the view is that the App will be shown on a screen without interaction for long periods of the day.
Unfortunately I get a "Your session has expired" message and stops showing the App after a short amount of time.
Can this be turned off or at least set a time in configuration e.g. 10 hours?
Any suggestions and advice would be grateful.
Solved! Go to Solution.
Instead of refreshing the Chrome browser, can I put the timer on the data connection to refresh before 8 hours time, so it can keep connected for further 8 hours? etc.
Has the browser refresh solution not worked for anyone? I have the auto refresh set for every 3 hours but the app session still times out after 8 hours. It's hard to believe this is even still an issue.
Anyone solve this yet? I have an extension for refreshing the browser and the users tell me they get the end session after 4 hours still. This is a kiosk and supposed to go weeks if not months without interaction.
What ended up working for us was to set up a scheduled task that closed the browser and re-opened the app. (We are using an app as a carousel-type solution)
We haven't had the time out issue since we set that up.
I used Auto Refresh Plus extention link down below , dont really use this version anymore as it had a malware
Alternatively you can use timer control to refresh page ,
>> On properties set Autostart to true
>> On properties TimerEnd type Lunch("http://yourPowerAppsPage")
>> On Properties Duration set you time , default is (60000) 1 minute I believe
