Notifications - Max Runtime Increase Merged

Extend the max runtime for deferrals from 5 minutes to 30 minutes. This would be ideal for apps like Zoom, AnyConnect and Jabber, because someone may be in the middle of a call/meeting when the countdown timer begins. Also, make the auto close and update a checkbox option that works in tandem with the deferral. The person can defer but if they are away from their desk for more than 30 minutes and the countdown expires, it closes the app and upgrades.

    Considering most of the users working from Home, I would request that the Notification run on the screen for longer time. May be max to 2hours so that user sees the notification with the Work From Home situation prevailing.

    Thanks for the feedback. We will likely try to split this idea into two requests:


    1. Extend the max runtime for deferrals from 5 minutes to 30 minutes.

    2. Also, make the auto close and update a checkbox option that works in tandem with the deferral. The person can defer but if they are away from their desk for more than 30 minutes and the countdown expires, it closes the app and upgrades

    We need to do this because there could be some factors in max runtime we need to work out that we wouldn't need to for #2.

Allow increase Timeout of User notification from 300 seconds to 3600

Merged
We have to treat our users very carefully and must give them ample notification prior to shutting down an application on them. 5 minutes isn't long enough for us and the ability to be able to go to 1 hour or beyond would be wonderful.
