I could use some help. I am trying to display user-specific project management update status within the client dashboard. I understand I can use api tool like make to add a cms and it will update. What i'm struggling to achieve is making this information user-specific. If I did it this way all members will be able to see this, and every project is going to be different. How do I achieve this?

    Hey Brian Kelly, you can make use of user specific template in Webflow, if you are using that. And you can filter the fields based on the current user on top of it.

    You can find it in a section below the other pages that you have in Webflow. It will be visible on left pane of the editor.

    A J thanks for helping out here! Unfortunately the solution you suggested won't work in this case. Memberstack is totally separate from Webflow Memberships and cannot reply on Webflow's native filters.

    @Brian Kelly here's the best answer I can find so far

    Hey Duncan-Hamra, yes I understand the complexity of Webflow memberships and Memberstack.

    But the solution I am suggesting here is not memberships based, I am talking about users as collections in Webflow. And I have worked on a project, where they wanted to use Memberstack for memberships and just used Webflow for handling and front-end, so Users were stored as collection items in Webflow and I integrated all of them via Make.

    So in that case, Webflow does offer a collection page, so if Brian Kelly, has the same setup, we can use the collection page with the native filters based on the current user.

    I understand that you can set up users as collection items. I see it was done for project management dashboards to show who's working on the project. 

    Duncan-Hamra I think the link you sent is closest to what i was looking for originally thanks for the info 🙂
