What is the Inactivity Timeout tool monitoring for activity?


The information here describes what the Inactivity Timeout tool monitors for activity.


The Inactivity Timeout tool resets its last activity counters when any of the following occur:

  • A Form, Report, or Table is opened.
    • (I.e. a trigger on a Security global procedure.)
  • A Table, SQL table, or SQL Stored Procedure is opened or executed.
    • (I.e. triggers on Pathname, SQLPath, or SQLScriptPath global procedures.)
  • A Window Note or Record Note is checked for.
    • (I.e. triggers on Check_For_Note and Check_For_Record_Note global procedures.)


The above items will pick up most activities within Microsoft Dynamics GP and prevent the Inactivity Timeout tool activating prematurely.
