Expire Edit Sessions

Highlighted
Contributor

When users are actively engaged in an  Edit session, such as collaborating on an Excel sheet on SharePoint online, some restrictions apply to the file for all other users. (Such as, renaming the file etc). 

 

The problem is that some users may leave for the day while keeping the document open, effectively restricting anyone from gaining full control on the document. 

 

Is there any way we can discard, or end an edit session after a specific amount of time if inactivity? 


I do not want to sign them out from all Office 365 products, and not even from another sheet they might be editing. I want a "per document" session timeout. 

 

Any possibility?
