Migrate MS Access Online

Summarized Video Transcript

Part 3 will show you how to create a login screen to password protect the data and forms within your app.

Now that we have username and password fields as credentials to log in, go to the Authentications object.

Express Authentication Setup

From the list of objects in the left-hand panel of Caspio’s app interface, click Authentications.

Screenshot of Caspio’s app builder. It shows the “Authentication” section. The cursor hovers over the “New Authentication” button.

To go through the wizard, click the New Authentication link on top.

Next, click the Authentication data source dropdown to gain access to all six of your tables. Select Users to incorporate your username and password fields.

For your Setup options, you have two choices:

  1. Express – Select if you need a quick way to create a login screen.
  2. Custom – Select if you need additional customization options. For example: if you select ID Services only, you can allow your end-users to log in using their Gmail account, instead of their credentials in your data source table.

For this tutorial, select the Express radio button to use your username and password fields.

If you opted to use email as your credential and made it a unique field, you’ll see email as part of the dropdown menu for the Username field.

You can also expand the Advanced Settings below and see how each option can enhance your app.

For now: hit Create, name your authentication Users Login, then click Finish.

Keep in mind that in Caspio, you can build sophisticated user-level management systems to have different permissions with different privileges.

For instance: If an employee logs in, you can limit them to have read-only rights. Conversely, if an admin logs in, you can allow them to read and edit all the data.
