When users log in with their credentials, a cookie is created in the browser. This is a Session cookie
Every 5 seconds a request is made to the LRS Connect or Netpage Unlimited the session is refreshed, this allows the user to remain logged in indefinitely as long as they have a web-browser application page open.
If a logged in user has multiple tabs open in a browser, and then closes the tab with the web-browser application page (but not the browser), the session remains active for 30 minutes.
If the logged in user opens LRS Connect or their Netpage program / web-browser application page again before the 30 minutes elapse, then no additional log-in will be needed as the user is still logged in. If the 30 minutes do elapse, users will need to log in again.
If a logged in user closes the browser (not just the browser tab) where the web-browser application page is open, the session will be lost and will be required to log in again.
Simultaneous logins for 1 user are allowed in LRS Connect, but not allowed in Netpage Unlimited.
Either way, users can have multiple web-browser application tabs open within the same browser.
This Note is for Netpage Unlmited users only: Logging in to a separate browser or computer will log out the logged in user - if already logged in somewhere else. This program user properties are different and should not be confused with the user properties and methods for LRS Connect waitlist and staff lists.
