The Register Idle Event Parameter


If the Register idle event when user is inactive checkbox is selected (on the Editing Client / Editing Client Group page, on the Monitoring [Windows/macOS] tab, in the Monitoring Parameters section at the top) to enable this option, an idle event will be registered whenever there is no Client activity, i.e. no mouse movement or key pressing for longer than the Timeout (min) value. The default value is 15 minutes.


Examples of configuring the Register IDLE event when user is inactive parameter (along with the Detect system IDLE events parameter), and whether and when idle events are registered, are shown in the table below.

Configurations similar to those (shown above) in examples 2 & 4 can be used, for example, to avoid the system registering an idle event when an online meeting is in progress and the user does not move the mouse or press any keys on the keyboard during this time.
