    Session timeout

    Hi,

    Is it possible to set a session timeout for SIMS? Seems like an obvious and useful feature for such confidential data but can't see anything relevant!?

    I'm trying to stop staff logging into SIMS in the morning and leaving it on all day.

    Hi there, wouldn't it be easier to lock the computer after a certain time period? I don't think there's a built in function, the teacher(s) wouldn't be too happy if they had registration, marking, comments open at the beginning of lesson then have it close automatically 30 minutes later before they made saves etc.

    The laptop already locks after a specified duration but this doesn't stop SIMS being available when unlocked and unattended for whatever reason!

    I was hoping for a timeout after inactivity rather than simply from logon as that would be daft.....
