Renew the timer on Web Apps

When viewing an app in a web browser, the app will timeout after a certain duration. Then a small dialog will pop up telling you to restart the app. Previously, the app would continue to remain open, but be disconnected from datasources and you wouldn't know it. So the implementation of the dialog box is good.


I suggest a way for web browser users to renew their session without restarting the app. Suppose you are near the end of the available time to use the app, but you need to complete something on it before it restarts. You would be booted off and lose your progress. It would be useful to renew the session so that you don't lose your progress.

Status: Under Review

I have submitted this ask and will keep you updated as the enhancements are released.


Thank you for your continued feedback and patience,

Users of my app are also having this issue, restarting the browser will delete all of their records in the gallery. Hope to a have a fix for this soon. Thanks!

We are having this issue, how come this problem still open from 2016. MS, please at least provide a workaround.

My users, who are working from web browsers, also have this issue. As there is no warning before the session expires, users can be in the middle of filling out a form when the session expires causing them to lose work. As this can happen at anytime, writing to a Sharepoint list is not a feasible work around.


PowerApps has been great other than this one glaring issue, so a solution would be fantastic. Thanks.
