How to Adjust Users' Inactivity Logout Times in ContractSafe

Setting custom session logout times

At ContractSafe, we understand that different users have varying needs when it comes to the length of their login sessions. Some users may need to be logged out quickly, while others should be able to stay logged in for much longer. 
Whether you want some users to stay logged in for longer than the 45 minute default sessions or prefer quicker logouts across the organization, it's easy to tailor this setting to your preferences.
To make these adjustments, you'll need to be an admin or account owner. 
You change this setting for each user individually or change it by group type.

Setting custom session logout times individually


1. Go to Settings -> Users.

Make sure the group of users you want to modify the session logout times for, has as a Primary Role a group. There should be an icon with 3 people in front of the name. If there is not, click on the arrow and select the group you want that user to be part of.
