app open 7/24

Hello, I have created an application to schedule workers, the application will be running 24 hours 7 days a week. But it is not possible because after 24 hours the session of my user closes and closes the application. Is there a solution to have an application open 24 hours a day 7 days a week?


Thanks for the help

Hi @antonio_piernav 

I don't think this is possible. With any browser app, the session will eventually expire and the user will need to re-authenticate.


Can you clarify why it's a problem for the user to login again? Is it because you're using a shared account, and you don't want to provide the end users with the login credentials?


Hi @antonio_piernav ,

There is a Launch parameter that is currently in preview that might help you.  I should emphasise that this is in preview, and personally, I can not get this to work myself - it always opens the app in a new tab for me 😣

If you can get the LaunchTarget parameter working from the Launch function, I would suggest a timer that relaunches the App in the same window every 20 hours or so, or when your app is in a low usage timeframe.

Obviously I can't test whether this will solve your problem or not, but it's maybe worth a try.

Anyway, it might be related to my browser or maybe I'm just doing it wrong - but you can try if you like - maybe it will work for you;

First, copy your app URL from the Web Link property on the Details page of the app (plenty of stuff online to provide step by step details on where and how to get this).

Add a button to test - you can convert this to a timer if it works.

Set it's OnSelect: property to;

Launch("yourappweblinkhere", {LaunchTarget: Replace})

Save, publish then run the live version of your app to test (not in edit mode).

If it works for you, then you can add a Timer and run that function whenever the timer ends, or set something up to only run at a certain time of the day by updating and checking the time every 30 seconds or so.

Good luck, I'd love to hear if you can get it working!

Kind regards,
