When using forms, currently we can send data from the columns in the table where a form is pulling data to a form submission destination table. We can also send special values such as the signed in user’s email, date & time, and a unique identifier.
Is there a reliable way to pull data from the profile table of a signed in user and submit that data to a form submission destination table? (In the context of a profile table created as per the official documentation Glide Docs)
Ha, I found the answer to my question: Use If -> Then -> Else in a column in the Data editor to pull data from the User Profile table.
I think I’m trying to accomplish the same thing.
User Profile table with Employee - Email - Dept - Supervisor - Manager - etc
User would be logged in via email. When they submit a form, how do I populate Employee - Dept - etc. into the sheet so it can be filtered and formatted.
I can use special values and retrieve email, but I can’t figure out how to tie the email to an Employee in the Data editor.
If those fields are in your user profiles already, you can access it anywhere in the app via user data.
Or else you just need to write the signed-in user’s email to new sheets and then do a relation - lookup, would that work?
Same type of question from me: Form is creating a transaction record and I want to include user’s cell phone number in the record. Special Values allows me to include user’s email. What is the trick to grab a few more columns from the Profiles table and include in the transaction record? Thank you.
You can add a ‘User Profile Columns’ component to the form as long as you have user profiles enabled.
Works nicely. Thank you very much.
