Yep. Definitely on our roadmap!
Do u have a deadline for this…
Sorry @Ahmed_Samir. Unfortunately we can’t give a timeline yet.
@JackVaughan is there any way to deep link to a specific page currently?
Also with the white label list - do users have to sign up for that first before being able to sign up to the app?
As you know - email whitelist allows only certain people to log in. You choose one of your sheets where your whitelisted emails are located and then only those users will be able to log in to your app. You effectively ‘sign them up’ by whitelisting them - but they still need to ‘log in’ with a pin.
However, once they have logged in, they benefit from per-user data.
Hi Jack, so everytime users want to use the app they need to login? Isn’t there a way to avoid this? So they need to use the app and they are directly logged in? Thanks!
If you add the app to the homescreen, and even if you just use it in the browser (I think), once you log in once the user should not need to log in again as long as they use the same device. The only time they would be required to log in and get a new pin is if they clear their browser cache. Clearing the cache can cause the device login info to be cleared out. Once they are logged in, that device is semi-permanently logged in all the time.
I would love a way to link directly to parts of the app via something like a push notification (Pushbullet, Pushcut, etc). I envision having an app and, using Zapier, I could send notifications to myself and/or my wife and the notification could include a link to the relevant part of the app. That would be a dream
I totally second this.
Hi Jeff - just using the browser I have to log in every time. I have not tried yet with adding to homescreen
I would try a different browser or try on a phone or someone else’s phone. You don’t have to add to homescreen, but just try it in different browsers to make sure your don’t have a setting to clear cache. So you have to look into other sites like Gmail, Google drive, it glide. I don’t I stay signed in until I manually sign out.
@Jeff_Hager … two year later … the same request, do GlideApps have a roadmap to work with parameters in the URL?
I need this for many many developments for my clients
I be waiting your reply
I second and wish for it
I don’t foresee anything like url query parameters coming anytime soon, if at all. I’m also not privy to what Glide has planned for the future. About the closest thing you would have now is deeplinks for apps and slugs for pages.
Usually query parameters need specific programming to handle specific parameter names to parse out the information from the parameters and place it into the correct variables, followed by knowing what action to take once those variables are filled. I’m not sure how making something like that dynamic would work in the case of Glide.
I really don’t know what Glide can and will be doing in the future.
I did take a crack at seeing if I could come up with something myself. Two things I discovered so far:
- Even if you add query parameters to a glide app url, the page will refresh without the query parameters, so they aren’t retained.
As far as I can tell, URL params are still a no-go on Glide.
I had an idea to use URL parameters on a webhook. This would be read by Make and then update (or add) a row on a Google Sheet that is the basis for a Glide app. Perhaps to add a row to the “users” tab, which will both allow a user to login, as well as assist the app in “preparing the ground” for this user using these parameters we sent to the webhook. For example, we will ask a user to login to an app that will collect onboarding documents. The required set of documents might not be similar across all new clients, thus the parameters that will set the ground for the app to know which docs are needed.
I’m still trying to fully design this solution but I wanted to get your valued input early, so I won’t waste my time.
Thanks and have a great weekend
Yeah, I guess theoretically that should work. If your process creates a user profile row that is prefilled with everything you need, then when they sign into the app for the first time, it should connect with that existing row, and all of that prefilled data should be accessible.
@Test_Test I’m currently implementing something like this-
My only issue is retrieving a URL/Deep Link specifically to the newly created page.
Essentially, I’m prefilling a make.com webhook with all the data and I want the webhook response to be the newly created row/page in Glide.
perhaps @Jeff_Hager might have some insight on how to achieve this?
I don’t think there is a way to get a webhook response with a deep link. Deep links contain a row ID, and the RowID isn’t created until aft|r a row is added. Unless someone else has experience with something like that.
ok, I figured it out and got it to work.
When glide creates a new row, it responds with the RowID-
I then pass this on in the webhook response!
