I am looking for ideas to best build an app that will track information similar to a LinkedIn profile, contact information, past experience, skills etc. I was wondering if anyone has a suggestions for a good app to brainstorm with from the exchange. Also I will need to make sure that users without a QuickBase license can access and add/edit records (their profile) Is this possible?

The obstacle that you will have is that unless you contrive some kind of secret code that users need to enter, there is not a way to control who can do edits as if you open up your app to everyone on the internet, then everyone on the internet can make edits.  There is not really a secure was to allow that kind of access and control it hen the users do not have their own userids.

You maybe need to allow users just to to view and then fill out a form to request changes.  An internal user can then vet the changes perhaps associate them as a child to the "LinkedIn" record and click a button to copy the changes to the "LinkedIn" record.

Thanks for that recommendation, I will look into the code option. Do you know of an article I can read to learn how to implement that?

Also, have you seen any apps on the exchange that have a similar structure/fields I could reference while researching the best way to build my app?
