Settings: Bookmarks

The help text for Bookmarks has been updated to say "XML Editor" instead of "Advanced."

Admins can now set an Idle Timeout. The Idle Timeout is used to log users out after a specified period of inactivity. This prevents users from staying logged in indefinitely and having the time recorded as activity.

New Articles




With the release of the new Admin app, about 90% of the its documentation on the Help Center is new or revised this week. Because both versions of the app are still in use, we have retained the previous documentation at the bottom of the articles below the blue boxes with a Notes header. Here are some key articles to help you start exploring the new app.
