Adding a personalised message to welcome a user

Is it possible to add a message to the app screen that pulls the users name from a data source?

I.e Hello, “users name”

Hi Mel,

This is relatively easy to achieve with some custom code. You want to first go to developer options > HTML and add the following HTML:

<span class="personalMessage"></span>

Under the javascript tab you want to add the following:

Fliplet.User.getCachedSession().then(function (session) {
  var user = _.get(session, '');

  if (!user) {
    return; // user is not logged in
  //Here we want to insert the text containing the logged in users name into the span we created. 
  //In this case the logged in user has first name and last name stored in different data source columns. 
  $('.personalMessage').text('Hello, ' + user["First Name"] + '' + user["Last Name"])

The above will insert the text into the span and will show the message “Hello, [users name]”. Feel free to change the message as needed.

If you would like to style your message you can target that using CSS:

  font-size: 20px;
  color: red

Hope this helps,
