Some users can’t figure out that the “Sign in” text in the menu is a link, and I’ve had trouble with users that can’t figure out how to sign in. So if we had the possibility to give a button this capability users will log in easily.
Totally agree with you since from what I’ve experienced, it should be totally possible. I’ve brought up the current workarounds to Glide, so they are aware of the hack that I and others have experimented with. Here are a few ideas on workarounds. The third one I’ve tested and have yet to notice any consequences. As for controlling Add access, you could use a form button instead. I personally like the asthetics of a form button over the +Add button, but now with the User Profiles feature, I’m sure that will open up a whole lot of new features in the future.
