I’m new to Glide. I’m creating an app that will allow golfers to add up all of their made putts to see the total feet made (part of a fundraiser). I’d also like each golfer to be able to log in to see their total made putts (but no one else can see it). Can someone help? Be gentle.
Are you writing the data as a row for each putt? If you have a user table, you can create a multiple relation from the user to the putt table by linking email address. Then create a rollup column that uses the relation to sum all of the putts.
As for restricting what they can see, you can either apply Row Owners (more secure) to all of the tables that have an email address, or apply filters by signed in user (less secure) to any screen or list where you only want the user to see their own data.
If all you care about is the total length made for each golfer, I’d just use a single numeric column in the User Profiles table.
Then for data entry, present a screen with a number input and a submit button, then when the user submits, increment the numeric total column by the amount that they’ve entered.
In terms of restricting the view, as Jeff suggested the best and easiest way is to apply row owners.
Thank you, Jeff. Can you send me a screen shot of what that table would look like? Say, a player is me, Pete Crozier, firstname.lastname@example.org. I’d like to have buttons on a main screen that say “add 5 feet,” “subtract 5 feet”, “add 10 feet,” “subtract ten feet”, etc. And then a number at the bottom of the screen that shows the total of all categories combined. Does that make sense?
Thank you! I’m totaling new to this, but here’s my simple vision: Thank you, Jeff. Can you send me a screen shot of what that table would look like?

That should be pretty easy using @Darren_Murphy’s idea. Just create various buttons with different increment actions. Whenever they click on a button, it can add or subtract values from the table row.
Just try it out and let us know if you get stuck.
If you don’t mind waiting 15-20 mins, I can quickly throw a concept app together for you.
OMG. You’re the best! I can’t wait to see what you come up with!!
Here you go… very simple, but should be enough to get you started.
I’d recommend reading up (or at least watch the introductory videos) on the following:
Thank you for the template and the video links. This is great! One question: when I published the app, it was “magnified” … the buttons and text were much bigger on my Iphone than in the design preview on my computer. How can I fix that?
Do you have a screenshot of your iphone view?
Are you sure you don’t have a setting in IOS or Safari to show large text instead of normal text? I’m guessing that’s a browser or os setting and not an app issue. @Darren_Murphy’s app looks normal on my phone (Chrome on Android).
That was my first thought, but when I reduced the magnification of text on my phone, nothing changed with the app.
here’s the link to the new app
First of all, than pin is a one time use pin. I would have to request a new one. Doesn’t matter. I just signed into your app. This is what it looks like for me. Maybe another iphone user can chime in with some settings to check.
Thank you. I played around with my phone settings some more and it looks better now. Seriously, I love you guys and this service! I can’t wait to share it.
What is the maximum number of users I can have? Does it change with different plans?
There technically isn’t a limit on the number of users. You are limited on the number of rows for a free app, but there isn’t an enforced limit on a pro plan. If you start to get thousands and thousands of user, you may have issues, but Row Owners can help to limit that. There’s a lot a variables to consider, but for the most part, you shouldn’t have any major issues if your number of users is within reason.
@Pete_Crozier I looks fine on iOS on my side.
Thank you. I’ll check out the plans as I grow.
