My Account Page (For Users)

End users of your app who create an account will have access to their My Account page containing information like their profile as well as information that is related to them through linked records.
 
To help understand how this works, we will use this example Airtable base to build an employees directory app. Each Employee who creates an account will be able to:
  1. View and Edit their personal information
  1. View but not edit their department information.
 

Editing My Account Page

This is the completed My Account page for an employee. Without user permission rules, anyone would be able to view and edit information that’s related to them including the department.

To edit the My Account page:
  1. Click on the page selector from the editor and navigate to the My Account page

  1. Select a user group and user to view as

      In this case we are viewing as sam@pory.io who belongs to the user group Employee.
  1. Hover over and click on the Edit Form button to update which fields to display for their profile

      By default, a user who is part of this group can view and edit the record.
  1. Deselect Edit Record
  1. Save changes

Success! Users who belong to the Employees group can only view department information now
 
Now let’s take a look at how we can allow some employees to update a department information. We can:
  1. Create a user group called Admin
  1. Complete the same steps as above
  1. In the actions tab, grant View and Edit permissions for the Admin user group
 

Creating a Test Account

For new apps without users, you can create a test account by:
  1. Clicking on View As
