New User Parm Flag - Passing It to a datapage



Hi everyone

Pretty new user here...I don't think Caspio can do this but I'll ask...

I have an application I'm building where I have a settings table...This table has a flag field that is populated when a  new user has set up their profile properly.  Lets call the field:  Profile_Parm1...which is a text 255 format...If the field is blank, its an indication that the new user has not done all the new user admin steps.

I'm trying to create a form / process where this settings table is read (based on their authentication ID)  and simply retrieves the parameter: Parm1Profile_Parm1...the goal to receive it, then pass it to the  next form.

Here is how the application will work:

When a user tries to click on a link, (i.e. Add Item), I want to build a form to retrieve the parm first, then goto to the ADD ITEM html page if Profile_Parm1 is populated(i.e. Normal flow).

If its blank, I want to use some java script to not only tell the user that they need to complete the new user process first, but I want to automatically reroute them to the settings page form (New User Flow).

Is this even possible?

Thanks everyone

Hi Golfedad,

I would suggest to use JS that redirects the user based on check performed on one of Authentication field.

Below you may find sample code which I have used previously:

<button onclick="myFunction()">Add Item </button>

<script type="text/javascript">

function myFunction() {

var cb_text = '[@authfield: Profile_Parm1]';
    if (cb_text == 'Admin') {
    window.location = "URL_1";
    } else {
    window.location = "URL_2";

You may place above code in Header/Footer/HTML block of Datapage.

Please make sure that you disable HTML editor.
