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,

So if I'm understanding your recommendation this would launch another session of my powerapp, which would replace itself?

Thats correct after certain period of time (before 8 hours) a launch needs to happen. Just take in mind that the built-in timer from powerapps has a limitation that if your screen is in the background the timer is stopped, therefore the launch will not be triggered in the proper time.
