Sign in timer
Is there a way to keep the sign in timer going when a popup message appears.
Currently when a popup comes on the screen the timer stops and is reset when the popup is opened, so unless the popup setting extends beyond the sign in time penalties for late sign in are not accrued.
The sign in timer acts on every action the user makes. Everything the user does on the program is considered a sign in. Including reaction to pop ups.
The purpose of sign in is to show that the user is present and aware of the program. And reacting to a pop up is just that. So it is considered a sign in.
