Hello! A lot of the docs I create typically involve a hidden “backstage” section, where all the base tables live, and then various filtered views on the visible pages. This works great, except I’ve noticed one downside:
Anytime users get emails that reference rows in a doc (getting tagged in comments or using the email-a-page functionality), the auto-generated links in the email always link them to the base tables in backstage.
I don’t want to confuse users by showing them the backstage area, but sometimes there could be sensitive information that I definitely don’t want them to see.
How are other doc makers dealing with this problem? Is there a way to set the Coda email links to go to a view instead of the base table?
I think another solution would be to treat the base table like a view (filtered and on visible pages), and create an unfiltered view in the backstage. The links would no longer go to the backstage. Are there any concerns with filtering the base table?
