πŸ†• Sign-in Action

Introducing the Sign-in Action. You can now trigger the sign-in screen inside of public apps, meaning you can allow users to view your app first, without signing in.

Question β€” does this mean that Public apps can now make use of visibility conditions that used to be restricted to sign-in apps?

You mean the visibility that is restricted to user profiles? You can always do that with the previous setup. First enable public with email, set a profile sheet, then switch back to public.

Yes, but that is a work-around and in apps where I’ve used it, it causes issues (signs users out when they close the app, etc.).

Ah, of course, when they initiate a new session it will be like a new user.

Exactly… the ideal way this should work is that the app behaves like a sign-in app once the user signs in (preserves login) and all the conditions for visibility should be shown in the editor, regardless of the sign-in method chosen.

This is going to redefine the possibilities with Glide! Gotta check if we can whitelist users to Sign-in. If that happens, we can build membership based access too!

Thank you @JackVaughan and the Glide team. I think that ticks off one of the feature requests I added a few weeks ago! :grinning:

Amazing feature. Thanks

This is a great new feature but I have a questions regarding GDPR. I am using Google Analytics which is covered by the agreement checkbox on sign-up. If we are allowing limited access to the app before signup but not asking for a user to agree to T&C’s / Privacy Policy first - surely this means that we are not compliant with GDPR?

Does anyone have any thoughts on this and/or a solution please? Thanks.

beautiful, thats what I need, just waiting for more stuff like character limitation in a form, and image/video crop and trim when upload. Glide is amazing :tada: :confetti_ball:

I have a question, I change my app to public, and want to hide a form button if user is not signed and also show the sign in button, but this is happening…
