This article only applies to Squared Up Version 2.0. If you're looking for help with Squared Up Version 3.0, please visit our new knowledge base

Overview

Squared Up uses a default session time-out of 20 minutes. You may want to increase the session time-out to:

  • Avoid the user having to re-enter credentials when using Forms Authentication
  • Avoid delays associated with creating a new session

Instructions

Squared Up uses standard IIS / ASP.NET settings for session timeout.

1. Navigate to SquaredUp (or SquaredUpv2 if running two versions alongside each other).

2. Double-click on the Session State icon.

3. In the Cookie Setttings section you can change the Time-out (in minutes).


If you are using Forms Authentication you will also need to configure the authentication timeout:

1. Navigate to SquaredUp (or SquaredUpv2 if running two versions alongside each other).

2. Double-click on the Authentication icon.

3. Right-click on Forms Authentication and select Edit.

4. In the Authentication cookie time-out (in minutes) text box, type the number of minutes you want to use for the time-out value, and then click OK.


It is not possible to set different session timeouts on a per user basis, or to disable to timeout entirely.
