I’ve faced some difficulties while building an app with softr and would love to get some tips.
Our app allows our users to send a sms that looks like a smishing (SMS phishing) message to their loved ones. When a receiver clicks the url in the sms, he/she is directed to an educational webpage that shows how to deal with the whole smishing situation. At the same time, the sender(our user) can see that the receiver has clicked the url on our app. Now, here are our issues:
When we send out a sms, we append a send_id at the end of the url (ex. https://9zd.softr.app/e?i=recj6EmHs97tRdBAy). We want to send the url parameter, as soon as the receiver opens our app with the url, to the server(airtable) so that we can update the relevant sign to “clicked”. Is there any way we can make it happen with softr? We haven’t found it yet, so now, we are receiving the url parameter with a hidden field on the first page and sending it to the server when a button is automatically clicked (used jquery here) while providing the educational content on the second page. It takes a bit too long though.
We want to show the sender(our user)'s name and msg when the receiver opens the app with the url, which means, we need to show none-users the information that matches with the url parameter. However, in the CONDITIONAL FILTERS section on softr, it seems like that we can only use a logged-in user’s data (to show the user relevant info). Is there anyway we can use a url parameter to filter the data?
Any tips would be so much appreciated! Please let me know if there is a lack of information.
