Different Login Timeouts for different groups

Be nice to be able to set (for example) staff to all day login timeout (especially if they're on their own PC) and have students set the length of a lesson.

    I think each auth policy but also on different interfaces. For example our internal school ipads are on interface 1 and we would require a 10 mins timeout. For BYOD on interface 2 we would require a longer timeout for instance 24 hours. Both use SSL login page for auth.

    We used to be able to do this with our previous web filter. Now we are getting complaints from staff using their personal devices as the time out has to be low due to iPads being used in lessons by pupils. Would really like to see this implemented in Smoothwall.

    I agree with Sam's comment too.

    It'd be great if this could apply per configured proxy and location too.
