auto logout on desktop applications
Workstations are shared by multiple employees during the course of the day. Its helpful, that the application logs out automatically after a period of inactivity

We also have kiosks in our facility for users to use that need to auto-logoff after a period of time and not store user credentials so that the next person up cannot see that user's conversations.
We have common area machines (Meeting rooms) that users login with their ID.
We would like a feature same as “sign out of teams ID when we restart or log out the MeetingRoom computer”。
I had the same problem in our meeting rooms.
I solved it with a combination of Powershell script and registry key deletion.
All this is triggered when the meeting room PC is restarted or logged off.
I delete the Registry Key "HKEY_CURRENT_USER/SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run" via a GPO, just like running the Powershell Script. (Trigger is at logoff)
I have attached the Powershell script.
I think this is a bit cumbersome, but the only solution that worked.

Powershell command to log out programmatically would be helpful
This would need to be a profile setting because many of us would not want to be constantly logging back in after a period of inactivity.

We have common area machines (conference rooms) that users login with a general ID. They then need to login to Teams with their ID. We would like a 'time out' feature that has the Teams login...logout.
We do not have specific computers assigned to employees and a single computer may be used by multiple employees in the course of the day. Privacy for employee messages cannot be maintained in this situation since the DESKTOP APP does not auto logoff after a set period of inactivity.
