I’ve finally released my app to a few test users, and one of the issues I’m running into is multiple people thinking that the profile section inside the hamburger menu is where profile images should be uploaded:
My app is a directory of members of a particular group, with app users being those group members as well as members of the public (referred to here as “non-group-members” to avoid confusion w/ Glide’s public option). The app is set to “sign in with email” and directory members have a tab visible to them called “My Profile” where they can edit personal details and upload a profile pic. “My Profile” runs off of the member directory sheet while the above is linked to the user data sheet. (Members also have edit access to the member directory sheet and use it often, so I cannot merge the two)
There is zero reason or functionality for non-group-member users of the app to have a profile photo option - they don’t have profiles within the app. That said, I wouldn’t mind this feature so much IF this picture could be linked to the profile picture within the “My Profile” tab for members. That way directory members could add their photo in either spot. But, Glide doesn’t allow it - I tried setting up a relation in user data to the profile image in the member directory sheet but the profile image above can only reference a basic column:
Is there any way around this? Since I can’t connect the two profile image cells it’s useless and confusing to the directory members. As for the non-group-member users, imagine it’s the 1980s and you get a phone book in the mail and the first thing you do is tape a Polaroid of yourself on the inside cover - that is the functionality I feel is being shown to the non-group-member users and it looks silly!
Appreciate all advice, thank you
