Login Redirect on Role


Hello. I am trying to configure a login redirect based on user role per: https://howto.caspio.com/tech-tips-and-articles/common-customizations/create-user-specific-redirect-after-login/

My Admin user role is indicated by a YesNo checkbox in the User table that the authentication is based on.

Here is my javascript from the source code of the footer of a standalone Caspio HTML login page: 

if("[@authfield:Admin]" == "Yes"){
window.location = "https://[myurl]/a_dashboard.html";
else {
window.location = "https://[myurl]/s_dashboard.html";

The Authentication I am using has the redirect "Advanced Option" set to "Same Page" for a successful login. If I enter a redirect here I can only enter one URL. When I try to log in with a User having the Admin role (YesNo checkbox checked), I do not get a redirect to the a_dashboard.html. The login.html web page just refreshes but no longer displays the embedded Caspio login form. Everything works if I remove my javascript redirect code and just let the Advanced Options of the authentication specify a particular page to go to, but this doesn't let me redirect by role...

Answering my own question; when referring to the authfield in the javascript I was using the name of the field in the Users table. I should use the name of the field in the view that is based on the Users table.
