In a large scale business solutions, with dozens of users world-wide, it’s necessary to maintain a secure list of email addresses that should have access to the app - and further, details about these users (such as their Role, access to certain data, etc.) are really helpful to bring out a higher degree of functionality from your app.
The current method of handling this is split between two places:
- Users panel in AppSheet.com (to control actual access to the app); and
- Users table built into the app (to control aspects inside the app).
- Add/Remove/Edit authorized emails
- Change roles, version they see, etc.
- Basically do anything that’s possible from the User panel
Obviously only users marked as Admins would be able to see/edit anything, and it should be optional, but having this INSIDE the app would prevent someone from having to go out of the app into the editor to manage things.
This would bring about the ability to manage the user white list inside an app.
On a more personal note: currently I’ve got an app that we’re slowly working on rolling out a Cognito integration; but this has added yet another layer to manage - but I think I might be able to build some sort of integration with an appsheet app to manage that layer .
I’m looking to offload the work of managing the user list to someone more directly involved with those operations, but I’m not too keen on giving them access to the actual editor.
If there was an interface that I could turn on for these admin users, then THEY could manage everything directly from the app.
As always thanks for considering! (^_^)
