@{LOGGED_IN_USER:NAME} For personalized content

Hi all, would be cool if we could use @{LOGGED_IN_USER:NAME} to personalize content.

Ex. CRM Dashboard. "Good morning {LOGGED_IN_USER:NAME}, you got 100 new leads to work on!

Thanks for considering it and keep up the good work! Softr is ground-breaking!

p.s: like this feature on typeform

You can do this with a custom code block. For example:

<div id="welcome" class="sw-font-family-default"<p class="h2"></p></div>
<script>
    document.getElementById("welcome").innerText = "Hi there, " + logged_in_user.softr_user_full_name;
</script>

An upgrade on this feature request would be to be able to add dynamic airtable content into labels. i.e. as I am creating a marketplace I want to be able to welcome them by there business name which is a column in my airtable.

Unless you have any @dcoletta ?

Thanks so much!

Can you say a little more about what you mean by “labels”? Can you post a mockup of what you’d want it to look like?

@dcoletta this is what I mean by ‘labels’. They are often the titles of sections.

But where I have put the ****, it would be great to be able to add in dynamic airtable content. In the scenario I would want to add the name of the business who listed the class.

Got it. I wasn’t sure if you meant labels on filter settings, labels on data fields, or both.

I know how to write this custom code but I’m afraid this is a tough time of year to find the time. I’m making notes to myself here so I can come back to it later, or maybe someone else will take a crack at it.

The basic approach is this:

  • In the studio, annotate your labels with {{fieldName}} annotations. So in your example, assuming your Airtable field was called “Business Name”, you’d type More Activities from {{Business Name}} into the Label field of the Filter Settings.
  • In a custom code block, write code that does this:
    – wait until the label has been added to the DOM of the page. If it’s a data field label, we have to wait until the Airtable record has been fetched from the server.
    – search through the page DOM for text that looks like {{fieldName}} using code similar to var i = document.evaluate("//p[contains(., '{{Name}}')]", document); n = i.iterateNext(), and for each one found, extract the field name from between the double curly brackets with code similar to var propName = n.innerText.match(/{{(.*?)}}/g)[0], then look fieldName up with fieldValue = window.records[keys(records)[0]].record.fields['fieldName'] and replace {{fieldName}} with that value with code similar to node.innerText.replace(/{{(.*?)}}/g, fieldValue)

Yes, being able to add dynamic content into field labels and within text blocks would be incredibly useful and offer a more personalized user experience. The ability to create content block templates that merge field values into a text template, especially in combination with form fields or a signature block would be amazing for workflows that require approvals.

Fully agreed that being able to access Airtable field values for use within button names, regular text fields, et cetera would be a game changer.

Hi @dcoletta and @Anna were you able to figure out a way to customize the labels with field data? Thanks!
