Again: An alternative to a blind 20 minute log-out approach.
This was proposed three years ago; I'm reviving it because the aggressive logout is aggravating.
"Chuckie King said: Currently I check Family Tree to stay logged in for 2 weeks. I go away for a few hours. Come back and it still has my name at the top as though I am still logged in. Try to find a person using the PID. FT says no results found. It says this even while displaying my name at upper right, which should indicate that I am logged in. But it is deceiving me;the system has (evidently) logged me out, since when I do refresh the screen, it will find the person. Please ... if the system is going to log me out, let it do so and ask me to log back in. If it is NOT going to log me out, as appears to be the case, then you guys refresh the screen without having to make us do it, and stumble around until we figure out the workaround -- as should be the case anyway (an action initiated should logically do the "refresh" itself, we should not have to search, then refresh to get the thing to work). This is related to but separate from the 'stay logged in for two weeks' thread. FSSupport says they have this problem also, see Re: Case 00838759: Improper system logout or stall [ ref:_00D301b00H._50030Vv2gx:ref ]"
