Only showing data related to a specific users account


#1

This is likely a very simple question (I’m VERY new to this) but I’d really appreciate some help.

I want to create a website where a user can create an account, and then once logged in, they can save text in a text box.

As soon as they log out, that text is no longer visible.

Most importantly (and the main part of my question) is how to only allow the user that is logged in to view data that they have personally imported.

I’ve been trying the tutorials but I haven’t found a way to link data entries to a specific user that is logged in.

Any help would be appreciated. If there is a demo video or explanation that would be great.

Thanks,

Alex

Bump. I have the same question. I want users to be able to create a list, but that list can only be accessible to that user.

There are 2 things to do:

  1. in your Searches - to access data on the page (eg. in repeating group) - you put constraints like:
    Something’s Created by = Current User
  2. adding some rules in data tab - setting privacy rules (otherwise people with some skills will be able to access other user’s data, even though thanks to point (1) only current user’s data will be shown)

Thanks! I will give it a try.

I’m having trouble with this very issue… i think. trying to make certain that the current user is the only one able to see certain data–in this case–being displayed in a repeating group while they are logged in. i’m having trouble piecing together the conditions and privacy options to achieve this. granted my first attempt but your input is appreciated. thank you
