Session Timeout time is not disconnecting users in WebPortal

When users are inactive for longer than the maximum session inactivity time set in the WebPortal Configuration Tool they will be signed out of WebPortal.  Unless users click the log off button, they will still be using a license, even if they are inactive longer than the maximum session inactivity time, or close the web browser window.  This can cause other users to get the maximum users are already logged in to the software.
We are currently evaluating this issue and will update this article when we have more information.

To log users off:
  1. Login to WebPortal as Supervisor
  2. Go to Administration
  3. Click the trash can icon Trash Can Icon next to the user's name
