Privacy rules for inviting user to join team

Hi all,

I have an app that lets admin’s invite someone to a team using a standard text input field, where they enter an email address and that then triggers a email to be sent to that person. It also adds the invited user to a “Invited team member” list in the “Team” datatype.

Now, when someone gets the email and signs up, I want to check if the users email exists in the “Invited team members” list. To do this, I want to set up a privacy rule that says “If the teams invited team members contains Current user’s email”. However, the Current User’s email isn’t available to me in the privacy settings.

Every other field is available to me but not email. Can someone point out why this is?

Create field “email (exposed)” and fill it with the same value as “email” once user signs up, then use it in privacy rules. I didn’t try this, but should work. You can also add database trigger to update this field each time email is updated, then no additional actions in signup logic should be required…

@vladimir.pak thanks for that. That was going to be my “Last chance saloon option” but wanted to understand why the email field is protected this way first. Thanks again!

I don’t know the actual reason, but the unique_id fields (which is “email” for the User type) are not available in Privacy Rules.
