How to save user-specific data

User_6L3S5

Dear Community,

I want to use the start page as a customizable quick-link page where the logged-in user can add links (visualized as cards) to the pages he needs the most. The problem is that I can't change anything in the database, so making a table with userid and a cloumn with his favorite pages isn't an option. Is there a way to save the information about the favorite pages set by the user, so that they are displayed for the user when logging in again.

Thanks for the help!

    You could use preferences.

    Just beware, If I recall correctly there isn't way export or import preference.

    You could use preferences.

    Also beware:

    • User preferences exist in a global namespace. You'll need a naming convention to ensure that the preference names are unique per user, not per application.
    • There isn't a supported dictionary view to give easy access to multiple preference settings for displaying several pages in a list or report. Thought would have to be given to how the information is stored: multiple pages stuffed into a single delimited parameter value; or one preference per page, relying on the naming convention to identify the preferences that need to be returned.
