Re: Autosave then exit
in thread Autosave then exit
So, I have an application that I am writing for our Intranet. The client wants the session to last at least 2 hours or more, because users are interrupted all the time. My argument is that this enables users to be careless and walk away from their machines. Nonetheless, if I can save the data that is on the form, and subsequently force the application to log them out, I can keep the session time less than 1 hour.
My intention is to put as little data as possible on the session, meaning nothing to with the form data. With regards to reentry, I will always test the data to see if it exists before attempting to create a new record.
