Do you know why I cannot compile this trigger?

CREATE OR REPLACE TRIGGER LOGOFF_TRIGGER
BEFORE LOGOFF ON DATABASE
DECLARE
BEGIN
  insert into TEST
  (USERNAME)
  select distinct USERNAME
  from V$SESSION;
END;

Not sure "why" it does that... but try this instead:

create trigger logoff_trigger
before logoff on database
begin
  insert into test values(sys_context('userenv','session_user'));
end;

whomever owns the trigger doesn't have select access on v$session.

I was able to compile your trigger fine and it ran correctly as well.

sys_context is a good workaround too

Using SQL Scripts we can save all the SQL queries as files that we use very frequently on our database later point of time. This is one of the feature present under SQL Workshop in Oracle Application Express.
From implementing a password expiration date, to datatype conversions and file export options, these are some useful settings I've found in Jasper Server.
This video explains at a high level about the four available data types in Oracle and how dates can be manipulated by the user to get data into and out of the database.
This video shows how to Export data from an Oracle database using the Original Export Utility.  The corresponding Import utility, which works the same way is referenced, but not demonstrated.
