What is the timeout using an app if left idle in a web browser (chrome, ie, edge) during user data entry?
If it makes any difference, I'm specifically referring to a SharePoint Online customized form.
Hi @Anonymous ,
Do you want to know the timeout of PowerApps?
As far as I know, the timeout is 8 hours now.
If you open the App in PowerApps Web Studio, then the session should be active within 8 hours.
However, the connection may be disconnected during 8 hours. You could check on the PowerApps connection list site, make sure that this connection's status is Connected. If not, fix the connection there.

Thanks for the reply...No, I'm not looking to know the timeout session in PowerApps studio during development.
I want to know the session timeout of a PowerApps form that's been published and used in a SharePoint Online webpart, but has been left idle during data entry.
For example, here's a screenshot of the form when left idle... what is the session timeout limit?
I am looking for the solution for an open app timeout as well, any solutions till yet? i.e. 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.
I am also looking for a solution to this issue. I have heard of a chrome extension to auto-refresh the page for the end user but this is still not ideal. Looking for a solution within the PowerApps environment.
