Ability to close apps overnight when the station is offline

Is there a way to make apps close automatically after a certain time, e.g. 10 hours, or switch to the “splash screen” when the player is closed?
Unfortunately, this is not possible using the timer function, as it does not trigger when the player is not open.

Hi Fabehe,

If you navigate to Settings > Player > Auto Logout, you’ll see a few options that may address your issue.

I think the automated logout behavior and what it actually means for any running app session in terms of completions and data integrity is not yet well documented. In fact, this is still raising an eyebrow here as well.

Hi @sebme,

Thank you for the recommendation - we will look to update the documentation around our logout behavior.

Sincerely,

Jake

Hi @jakerigos, could you please share how it is working right now or when a more detailed explanation to this can be expected?

Hi @sebme,

I will work to get a detailed Knowledge Base article up/updated in the next few weeks.

@jakerigos Control here is significantly restrained by the fact that there is no way to trigger Tulip logic when a player goes offline or comes online. If we could set triggers to fire “On Station Online” or “On Station Offline”, we could very easily mitigate this issue with trigger logic.

The best work around currently is to utilize 30 second timers to check for if it has been > 10 hours of activity, but this is a pretty bad experience as operators who log in to the Tulip app will be able to use it normally for the first 30 seconds.
