Automatic Log-off

P: 4
Does anyone know if there is a way to automatically log users off in Access. I maintain a project management data base in a multi-user environment and someone is always leaving it open. Thanks

There isn't a really good way to track idle time in Access but if you really wanted to do it, it requires creating a form that is always open and runs a timer event that keeps track of where the user was to where the user is at the moment. The caveat of this of course is that it is not a true representation of idle time. The user could just be spending a lot of time typing into a memo field or something. You can find an example of that from Microsoft here:
