If you’re looking for a way to add an extra layer of security to your app, or if you want to give certain users different permissions, then you should check out Knack’s user login feature. With this feature, you could create different user roles and define what each role accesses.

Feature Highlight: Click on an Image to go to Another Page

Knack makes it possible for you to show summaries of your data by using a list or a table view.  When a record has quite a few fields, you can add a link to direct users to another page. In these cases, it is also possible to use an image to link users to another page. 

Let’s take for example this real estate listings web app.  Users can see summarized info about each property and can further click on the ‘view’ link to see more details about the property.
