On extending data entry time on multiple entry in back end

Have had no success with this yet. My data entry people are getting annoyed that the entry gets lost after working on it for 3 hours. They are slow because they are researching and answering calls and other duties.

I will try the script included in the above reference, but I recommend role based timeouts for ee forms if that is possible as a possible future feature.

Thanks for the recommendation, but it’s not something we’ll add because it will add complexity, and would have the potential to break existing customizations.

We provide hooks for this type of customization. To change the limit to 4 hours, you add the following to your site’s functions plugin:

    function() {
        return 240 * MINUTE_IN_SECONDS;
