BIKES Website Question

    I just wanted to mention something I've noticed on the BIKES site.  It seems like I do not get automatically logged off after a period of inactivity.  Yet, it seems like users should be automatically logged out after a period of inactivity, like 30 minutes. 

    Thanks for your input.

    I've submitted a support request to Wild Apricot to see if it's possible to change this setting.

    I prefer not to have to log in each time going onto the BIKES site. Especially with the new requirement of a 12-digit passcode.

    It used to be easy to post a ride but now it's an ordeal. Can't there be a just button to press for loading a ride onto the rides calendar?

    Those who wish to be logged out can click on the little human figure in the upper right-hand corner and log yourself out!

    Sorry to say I haven't heard back from the website folks on my question. I'll keep on it, though, so we can get some answers one way or another. 

    The login procedure can be cumbersome, for sure. But we can all thank those nice folks out there on the inter-webs who are looking around to cheat and steal from us all. They have made internet security what it is. Tighter internet security is happening all around us. 

    What can make it easier to log in is to use a password manager to save and automatically load your password. If you're not using a password manager, you could look into that.

    The automatic logout feature applies to administrators only. Apparently non-administrators won't be logged out automatically, as far as I understand. Can't be changed and it's there to provide safety to the club.  

    In this day and age, internet security trumps user convenience. We better get used to it. 

    Here's what Wild Apricot tech support says. You can click through on the link if you want to read more about it.

    I have confirmed with the development team that the automatic log out feature only applies to administrators. As a part of Wild Apricot's new security policies, for added security, administrators will be automatically logged out of their account after 3 hours of inactivity.
