Logging in users automatically with their email in a url parameter

We’re building a separate Order Tracking App with “Public with Email” security. The whole idea is to send customers to this Order Tracking App to view the status of their order once they have made an order from our Standard Public Ordering App.

What would be very helpful would be to automatically log in a user into the Order Tracking App by passing their email address in the url. For example, testapp.com/?email=customer1@gmail.com

A customer with the email customer1@gmail.com just needs to click on this link in our confirmation email to log in automatically and view the status of their order.

Any workarounds or thoughts here?

Can’t think of a workaround…sorry. Glide hasn’t built that functionality.

I also don’t think that would be very secure.
