You can set your M-Files Desktop users to be logged out automatically. To enable this functionality, edit the Windows registry settings given in this section on the computer on which M-Files Desktop is used.
3.1 Important Remarks
The timer is reset continuously if the client computer has a document opened in a program (for example Microsoft Word). The automatic logout occurs, for example, if:
• The document is checked out but not opened in a program.
• The user is editing the metadata card of an object.
If you want to set the automatic logout to occur when the client computer has documents opened in read-only mode, also add the registry setting IgnoreOpenReadonlyHandlesOnAutoLogout in the client computer.
3.2 Registry Settings
Add or change this setting to enable automatic logout in M-Files Desktop:
|Description||This value specifies the period of inactivity in minutes after which automatic logout will occur.|
|Value||For example, 120. The value 120 means that the automatic logout occurs after 2 hours of inactivity.|
Add or edit this setting for the logout to occur when documents are opened in any mode:
|Description||When this is set to 1, opened documents do not stop a forced logout.This setting is supported in M-Files 22.4.11321.4 and later.|
|Value||1 means that Documents opened in read-only mode do not stop a forced logout.|
After the modification, restart the client computer to take the setting into use.
