Rick,
What if the spreadsheet were broken into smaller pieces that took less time to 
enter the information into?  It would require more pages to click through and 
enter into but the information that was entered would be saved as they went and 
the time-out value might become less of an issue.

  Subject: Session Time Out for browser app


  Hey all,

  A guy here has written a browser based domino app that allows the users to
  enter budgeting and forcasting figures.  It's a javascript monster, that
  works much like a spreadsheet, and works pretty well.  The problem is that
  it takes a reletively long time to enter and adjust these numbers, and
  often the session times out before they finish and they lose all the work
  they've done so far.

  They've been told to save thier work often, but most are still complaining.
  It's used by several hundred users, and they only use the application once
  every 6 months or so, so the learning curve starts over each time.  We're
  looking for a way to allow them to keep this document open for a longer
  period of time, without sacrificing the security side of things.

  Short of setting the time-out values to a rediculously long time, can
  anyone think of a way for this one document on this one application to keep
  the session alive past the timeout?

  I'm open to any and all suggestions - even maybe a javascript or java
  applet that saves the data, or even just hits the server every 5 minutes or
  so while this document is open, or something along those lines.

  We're on the latest R5 now, but will be upgrading to R6 soon - so an R6
  solution would be acceptable.   The solution has to work from a browser.

  Thanks,

  Rick
