Security Enhancements: Multi-factor Authentication and Session Inactivity Timeout

I love this product!

I'm an Application Security specialist and I'd like to make a couple of suggestions in order to enhance the security of your site: 1. Multi-factor Authentication and 2. Session Inactivity timeout.

These two features are fairly simple to implement and will enhance your security significantly.

Thank you,

Dustin Lehr

@Dustin this functionality is available as part of TeamDesk Enterprise Edition:

Ah, thanks for the link. I see that the Enterprise Edition does include a Session Timeout, but what about MFA?

MFA can be implemented via Single Sign-on.
TeamDesk Enterprise supports SAML 2.0 as an SSO Protocol.

You should add a 12 hour and 16 hour and 24 hour sign out option.

The rationale here is simple. If someone signs in at the beginning of an 8 hour shift (standard in the US) the system might sign them out before they are able to complete the documentation of their records. If we had a 12 hour option, they would remain signed in past the end of their shift allowing them to update their records without having to sign in again, but then would log them out if they simply forgot to.
