3. User Session Timeout

Users who are inactive on WACM for 1 hour will automatically be logged out from the system. Users will receive a pop-up when they have been inactive for 58 minutes, and there will be a 2-minute countdown where the user can extend their session. If no action to extend the session is taken, then the user will automatically be logged out.

4. Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) Status of WACM Users for Account Admins

WACM now has a new "MFA" column in the "Users" view of the account. This allows Control Account Admins and AG Admins to view if their users enabled MFA. A "lock" will appear in the MFA column of the Users tab if the user has MFA enabled on their account.

6. New Suspended and Locked User Statuses

WACM has introduced "Suspended" and "Locked" user statuses. These statuses apply when a user has failed to successfully log in and they are either temporarily suspended or permanently locked from accessing WACM. If your users are in that status, you can now find that from the account "Users" tab. Account Admins can reinstate these users as well.
