User Inactivity Timeout

Automatically Logout Users

Ever wonder how you can automatically logout idle users of an Access database? 

Checking on the inactivity time is pretty simple...

1)  Create a little form which gets open with the HIDDEN attribute when the database opens.

2)  Set the interval timer to some amount of time.  Remember the interval timer is in milliseconds so 1000 ms is 1 second.  I suggest you set it to about 30 seconds (30000 ms).



Our Access Programmers work with clients all over the world through the Internet. See why we are the: the best Access programming company.

We also have 100's of programming examples from simple to complex. You can jump to our Access tutorials here.


3)  Create a visual basic procedure in the On Timer event of the form.

4)  Copy and paste the Microsoft.com VBA code for detecting user inactivity in this article: How to Detect User Idle Time or Inactivity

5) Find the line of code:   Const IDLEMINUTES = 2 
You can change the idle time minutes to whatever time in minutes you would like.  You might want to change it to a 20 for 20 minutes.

*** Now we have a downloadable Microsoft Access example database showing how to logout inactive users!  Go to our example download page for User Inactivity Logout VBA Code.
