When "Auto clear triggered Alert entity after logging" is selected on any alerts the logging prompt window is displayed for 10 seconds, not 5 as set. If all of the auto clear options are cleared the logging prompt reverts to the selected value.

Can the program be designed such that the selected prompt display value is actually used when auto clear options are selected?

Terminology is important. You're referring to the Logging Success popup, it is not a Logging Prompt. JTAlert does not have a Logging Prompt window/popup, WSJT-X/JTDX have a Logging Prompt window. The subject of this message thread has been updated to reflect this.

The 5 second versus 10 second display time is by design and has been that way since JTAlert 2.16.13 (29-Aug-2020). From the release notes...
  Changes:

    - Logging Success Popop: The display time for this popup is increased to 10
       seconds (default is 5 seconds) if one or more of the Wanted Alerts is set
       to have their "Needed" settings automatically adjusted when logging a QSO
       as per the new "Auto clear triggered Alert entity after logging" feature.
       The increase display time is to provide sufficient time to review what
       changes have been automatically applied to the internal Alert Database.

Until now there have been no complaints about this increased display time when Alerts are set to auto-clear.

I will make that a user settable option in future release, it has been added to the todo-list. But don't expect instant gratification, this type of change is not high-priority and is not likely to be implemented any time soon, sorry.
