Feature Upgrade: Filtering by Logged-in User

07/15/2013 Posted by Brandon

We added the ability to filter records by the logged-in user to your Knack views.

This is useful in a scenarios where you want to display child records that are connected to a parent object and to the logged-in user:

  • Show tasks for a specific job that are assigned to the user.
  • Show comments about a specific project the user added so they can edit them.
You can add a rule to the Data Source by setting a connection field to the logged-in user:

Combined with the form rule to assign a logged-in user to a record, you can now easily add user functionality to any child object in your database.

If you just need records directly connected to the logged-in user you can click “Add View” to any Entry Scene for all your options.
