Working with User Data

User State

In the editor you can preview the page as an group member by selecting them from the navigation, you can also access their user record / data in the variable manager.


If you are on a portal this step is required, as non members will only see the login screen.

On public pages you can still control the user login state to create conditonal states on those pages - based on whether a user is logged in or a member or specific groups.

You can use account data to check whether a user is logged in on any page.

User Variables

When you toggle on or off the logged in state, or choose users to work with when editing portals or public pages - new variable groups will become accessible.

If the user record cannot be found, the account is not considered a member of the group (not authorized).
When found (authorized) the record has all the fields available for the user.
You can access the user record from the variable manager.

Accessible only on portal pages.
