User profile

  

I can't find it (or it's not obvious to me), but is there a plugin or something else I can use in OS to have the beginnings of a User Profile? I don't want to have to invent a wheel already invented. I will want to modify user fields but it would be really great if I could start with something that already exists!

Hello Rob,

Are you looking for a Profile screen with the interface already built?

You can use Silk UI Samples for that: https://silkui.outsystems.com/Samples_Mobile.aspx#Mobile_Details-Samples_ProfileSettings


Hi Rob,

Are you looking for the users application (<your environment>/Users) where you can create and add some information like email and phone number of your users? 

This application is built-in with the platform and uses the User entity (from system) to store the information. You can also extend this entity and add other profile details for your users and also develop some customized profile pages (using the layout proposed by Dinis for instance for mobile applications).


Hope it helps.

Thanks Dinis, this is helpful. Is there a tutorial on how to use it?

Thanks Ana, I think this is what I was looking for. Is there a tutorial on how to use it? How to customize it?

You can watch the 1 min video explaiing how to download and use samples. Click on the "play" button on this page:

https://silkui.outsystems.com/Samples.aspx

It's very easy, just open the Samples espace, copy the screen you want to your application and bind your data (picture, name, email, etc).


My regards
