No more timeouts

Every now and then, I have something nice to say about USAC's online tools. Today, I come to praise the online Item 21 Attachment.

First, of course, the rant: Why can't I just import last year's attachments? Most of the time, services are similar, so for each FRN, I'd like to opportunity to put in an FRN from the previous year and have all the info pop in. I've just about reached the point where I'm going back to paper, because that way I can just edit last year's and submit it. Also, how about asking for all the info on one page, instead of making me click, click, click to get through the process? And finally, when I click on the link to bring in the amounts from the 471, why does it erase any information I've already put in that page?

Now for the praise: I think the timeout is completely gone. I just ate dinner in the middle of doing some Item 21s, and when I returned, I was able to resume where I left off without any pesky timeout kicking me out. I like it!

  1. So I ran a little test and left an Item 21 Attachment session open overnight, and lo and behold, I was able to continue the next morning.

    I like it!
