Redirect Based On Access Level



I am trying to create a button that connects users to a details page depending on their access level. Here is what I have in the button right now (URL changed):


<input onclick="window.open('https://sample.org/edit.html?ID=[@field:Contact_Sheet_Number]')" type="button" value="Edit Content" />


I would like to adjust that so it directs

- user level users to one page: https://sample.org/edit.html

- management level users to one page: https://sample.org/edit1.html

- admin level users to one page: https://sample.org/edit2.html


I was directed to this page for help: http://howto.caspio.com/tech-tips-and-articles/common-customizations/create-user-specific-redirect-after-login/ which explains redirect after login based on access level, but I was wondering if I could just insert the HTML code into the HTML box my button is in (rather than a standalone login screen). Here is the code they recommend: 


if("[@authfield:Admin]" == "Yes"){
window.location = "http://www.mysite.com/admin.html";
else if ("[@authfield:Manager]" == "Yes"){
window.location = "http://www.mysite.com/manager.html";
window.location = "http://www.mysite.com/employee.html";

I am trying to do something like the original post. I have two different Single Record Update forms for two different departments. The records in my tabular report are in 2 groups - Residential and Commercial. I am trying to have only 1 update 'button' on the tabular report that will redirect to the correct SRU Form - Either Residential SRU or Commercial SRU - depending on the value of a field.

I have a Yes/No field named Commercial_Service. If this is checked, it is a Commercial record. If not, it is a Residential record. Hence, if it is checked, I want the button to redirect the user to Commercial SRU form, and if unchecked, redirect to Residential SRU form.

Any ideas?

Hi @kpcollier -  Have you tried to create a calculated field that will have a conditional link based on certain criteria? Perhaps like this one:

CASE WHEN Commercial_Service is checked
THEN  Commercial SRU form link
ELSE  Residential SRU form link

Then this calculated field can be referenced to another HTML Block for <a> tag or button.
