Hello, new at Coda, so have a couple questions
I would like to give access to Coda data (in a table of a doc) to a lot of different client, each client can of course see only the data he is linked too. They just need a read access. This is non sensitive data (low security solution accepted )
First obvious solution is to invite them all, they create a Coda account, I link the data to them in the table and filter based on connected user.
Several downsides for me with this solution: Lot’s of invitation to do, they have to create account, they can put any stupid name they want (like me right now) and difficult for me to know who is who, can’t link data to them until they have made an account, they have coda environnement they don’t care,…
When the documation say “external users” what does it means exactly? Coda user but outside of my workspace? Non Coda user (but how they are identified then, what sort of account is this?)
Another solution could be to create a User table representing all of my clients, with a “token” column which is a code that identify them. I can easily send it to them and then use it to identify them, like puting the token in the document url as a query param (like ?token=ABCD) and filter the table data based on the query param. This is very low security I know, but really acceptable for my non sensitive data in my use case. But I can’t find how to get the url param in any formula. Is this possible to get the url params in the doc? Or other way (cookie, …) ?
Any other suggestions to “identify non coda users” are welcome
