So I was waiting for the super team of glide to add somekind of “role” capabilities to the app. Admin role, user role etc. But for the time being I have made a hot fix for this!
Case: You have an email whitelist app and want a user and an admin to use the same app instead of making 2 apps of 1 sheet.
Admins can read and edit
Users can read-only
So i have “news” Items in my app.
A tab in my sheet is called news with =arrayformula(newsadmin!a1:z) in cell a1.
This inserts all the rows from another tab called “News Admin”
Make a new tab in your sheet and add (whitelisted) admin emails to this.! See column C
In your glide app add a inline list in whatever screen and show the admin-spreadsheet-tab BUT in the features of this modules Filter by signed in user en set this to the email column!
Now your module only shows one item for the admin-user with “Admin Home” which you can make it look like a button
Then you set up admin home screen with Buttons that go to screens that normal users don’t have access to like the “news admin” screen I’ve set up.
These admin screens items can be edited by users etc etc.
A normal user can never reach admin screens!
