    We have a person on our team who is experiencing this issue, however it has happen to him from multiple computers.  I will let him know of the work around.

    Hi Diane.  I need to update this article, but since we rolled out WP4.0, we've heard that having the "keep me logged in" checkbox enabled also helps with this issue.  Perhaps your team member can let us know if this works for him?

    I have passed your suggestion on to him.  One thing that he found would work for him was this - if he logged into the Support Center after getting the "Timed Out" message, then he would stay logged in and be able to view services / accept assignments, etc.  But he had to take that extra step in order to not get timed out right away.  Heard of that happening?

    Wow.  Where does the time go!?!  Sorry for not responding sooner.  It is very strange that logging in to the Support Center would help.  Thanks for sharing that info.  Any ideas if the "keep me logged in" checkbox helps him?

    I'm getting the session timeout notification box when I try to access the 'files' tab on a given service. If I close the box, the screen stays the same except all the files (which I know are there, I saw them the other day) don't appear.  If I hit the refresh option, it kicks me back out to the main page with the calendar. I tried logging in and checking 'keep me logged in' but got the same results.  I can access every other tab except the files.  I can click on a specific song and then get the 'attached files' but not the files that are attached to the service itself.  Any thoughts?

    Hi Tom...

    I tried using the alternative web address/link you provided in your original message but to no avail...I experienced the same issue.

    ► I am having this problem today (for the first time, at this time). After successfully ACCEPTING 2 other Assn'ts a persistent "Session Expired, Log-In Again" appears for the 3rd Tentative Acceptance. • After refresting the page as recommended, the problem persists. • Logging-Out & back In does not clear the problem. • Logging Out, clearing all of Chrome's cookies, history, & cache, and back In again, the problem persists. Other non-response aspects of the site seem to work as expected. • Will try Alternate Site to try to submit the 3rd response (to an Assn't)..

    • Comment immediately above: Use of the Alternate Site worked fine.

    Hi David.  I was able to look at the error logs generated during your assignment response attempts, and it appears there is an unusual character in your response.  In fact, it is the same character that's at the start of the your first comment above (sideways triangle).  If you remove that from the response note, it should save without issue.

    ~ Thanks, Tom. The "unusual character" is in the standard Arial Unicode character set with a MS Character Map ID of U+25BA "Black Right-Pointing Pointer." Sometimes, historically, "Tentative Acceptance" msgs seem not to be seen or acknowledged; so a bullet-pointer was tho't to be helpful as an Alert call-out to our IT folks - unless it's transmitting as a blank-box (probably) or garbling the msg. Interesting that it would generate a persistent Session Expired anomaly instead of some other rejection notification - & be accepted here but not there! Will avoid its use in the future. ~ Thank-you.

    Thanks for the follow up info, David.  Yes, the main WorshipPlanning.com database currently only accepts a more limited character set (though that is due to be updated in the near future).  This support site is provided by a partner call Zendesk, and they already accept that larger character set.

    Let us know if you run into any more issues.  -tom
