How to Configure Session Timeout

Applies to: All versions of Ephesoft Transact

Your session will timeout if you don’t perform any actions or interactions for a specified period of time. When the session expires, all work from the session will be lost. By default, Ephesoft Transact will provide a warning message one minute before the session is about to expire.
