User Accounts

The user account feature prevents the public from accessing your app and enables you to control who can view, edit and create records in your application through the use of user groups.
Users who create an account on your app can also be synced to your Airtable which makes Pory a great platform for building apps that interface with your members, customers and partners.



Getting Started

  1. Go to User Accounts
  1. Click on Get started
Once this feature is enabled, there will be an onboarding process to guide you through setting up user accounts on your app.

1. Creating a Default Group

The first step is to create a default user group. A user group refers to a specific segment or subgroup of users who share common interests, goals, or characteristics. It is a great way for determining what different types of users can view and do in your app.

New users who creates an account on your app will be added into this default group. We can create permission rules for this group later from the editor.

2. Creating an Onboarding Email

The second step is to create an email used for onboarding users. Users will receive this email when they sign up to your app.

3. Setting up Page Redirections

The third step is creating redirections for your app. This tells the app which page to redirect your users to based on different scenarios.
