Server Option to perform Script on IWP Timeout

An option to run a Server Side script prior to logging a user out due to inactivity (timeout).  This would save a great deal of heartache when a users has spent time detailing info (which took longer than the prescribed timeout setting) only to find out they have been logged out due to inactivity. We have smart clients - dumb servers.

Yes - 60 minutes.   However in that 60 minutes of inputting some detailed info, the phone rings, you take a 15 minute call, input more data, get a cup of coffee, marvel at the info you have just written; hit the submit/commit button and get "Bad Request"; coffee gets thrown at the machine.  

 

It would be nice for the Server to be able to run a script, give warning, something, before logging them out as an IWP client.

 

The smart client I was referring to was the FMP client application (clearly not the actual "client"   :) ) .  Some of the File Options on the FMP client side would be great on the Server side - particularly in the IWP config.

Ah, yes - that sort of 'client'.

 

AFAIK FMS and FMP as hosts check for the continuing connection from FM clients every minute, and will drop the connection after the second check.

 

Maybe you could use a bit of javascript to fire off every minute (or 59th since last activity in the IWP client) that does something, maybe to commit the current record?
