I’m currently trying to sign a Teacher up as a user with first name, last name, email, pass etc and all of that is working, then i want to add more info to a data to filed called “TeachersINFO” with info like their profession etc that i can display as a repeating group for the school administration. The platform is for students as well and they are also users but will be assigned “Student” role.
What im trying to exmplain:
→ Theacher Signs up → Adds additional information that i want to add to a different custom data type called “TeachersINFO”. Reason being i want to display that info to the school administration, students etc.
My question is how do i “make change to current thing (TeachersINFO)” and assign that registered information in the TeachersINFO to the teacher signing up (User) so i can keep track and so they can edit that information on their profile?
If that’s the only reason for making a separate data type - I’d better play with data privacy rules (so students and school admins will be able to see only fields you allow).
So, you don’t make a change to an existing thing. You create a new thing of Data Type “TeachersINFO”. And then it depends on how you are going to connect TeachersINFO and Teacher data types. If your Teacher data type has a field TeachersINFO the process will be:
- create a teacher
- create a TeachersINFO
- make change to a thing (result of step #1), choose the field you created to maintain connection between data types = result of step #2
Thank you! But can i display Teachers info in reating groups for other roles if its in the “User” field? i tought thas was only for personal account like “Current user…” lines?
Ahh that was why nothing was showing up, thank you! can i add the Teachers email in a email filed in the TeachersINFO and if email = email display the info on thier profile? or is that risky? how can i go about that part?
Bumping this, still no success to link the user to the information they submitted on the TeachersINFO
So, let’s get back to your setup:
- You have 2 data types: Teacher and TeacherINFO. You have a “teacherInfo” (or whatever it is named) field in Teacher data type, this field has type TeacherINFO.
- During the signup process you save main info (name, surname, email and so on) in Teacher data type and also some external info into TeacherINFO data type [all steps are performed in actions within one workflow]
What and where do you want to show in Repeating Group?
