Getting User Role

  • 1.  Getting User Role

    Posted 02-26-2019 13:50
    I have 4 user fields in my application.  I retrieve the user name by using UserToName in a formula text field.  I have a user table that has the user id, name, email address and role.  I need to be able to pull the role of the user from the user table but not sure how to do this since I have 4 user fields and I will need the role for the user in each field.

    I don't know API, so I don't think that is an option for me at time.

    Thanks,

    Assuming that the Key field of the User table is set to say the Userid, you will need to set up 4 relationships to get the 4 respective Roles.

    Right now the record ID is the key field.  Should I change that to the email?

    Yes, if you choose to change it to the email field then you can make a field on the child side like

    UserToEmail([my user field 3])

     and use that in the relationship.
