How do I set Phorest to automatically log out after a certain amount of idle time?

This article will advise on how to enable our auto log-out feature used in conjunction with pin codes.

You can set Phorest to automatically log a staff member out after a certain amount of inactivity.

To do this, go to Manager > Settings > Point of Sale > Device.


Next, enter a number of minutes under the Auto Log Out After (Minutes) setting, then click Save to finish. Phorest will now automatically lock after being inactive for this amount of time.

Note: The lowest amount of time possible is 1 minute.


Staff will also have the ability to log themselves out of Phorest manually by selecting the lock icon at the bottom of the screen.
