Remember an Ideas portal user's login so they don't login each time

We want to present the Ideas Portal as a link within our product. These are retail stores in our case often with a single email and login per store (shared across all retail staff). However the logging into the Ideas Portal requires the user to login each time and the login cookie is only stored for the browser session. 

Can you add a 'keep me logged in' option to the Ideas portal login that persists longer than a browser session?

    At the moment I think the best solution here is to use a password manager in the browser.

    If you want to use an idea portal within your own product I recommend using the JWT single sign-on option. It is specifically designed to allow authentication from another product. This saves the user from needing to log in at all if they have already authenticated to your application.

    Hi Chris, We have thousands of independent clients that use various providers so we're now looking how we could fudge the SSO provider to hack an identity in. Otherwise it becomes a large adoption and change issue for us if we have to get each client and user to sign into a SSO portal they've never used (and for one thing only).
