Prevent duplication

(Robin Carlos Bernal) #1

Hi everyone!

How to prevent duplication of sign up or application from a user.

Triggered a flow for sign up and he did finish the flow successfully. Two days past the same user triggered the flow for sign up again. What can I do to notify him that he already signed and he doesn’t need to repeat it.

Please help.

Thank you

And at the same time stop the flow.

Hello, I’ve done something like this before. I used Google sheet to collect the user information during sign up, since flowxo assign a unique userID to every user who triggered the flow, I use add_row function to add userID generated by flowxo to the spreadsheet alongside the information I want to collect. So for every user that triggered the flow, I have the userID generated by flowxo with it

Anytime the flow was triggered, I used the search_row function to check if the userID already exist or not. That way I can skip the sign up

I hope this helps

Do you have any screenshots? That I can reference on?

Hey Robin, I have some but you might not be able to see the logic (filter) behind it. But I’ll drop one which I used. In this case, if the userID count equal 0, the add_row function will be executed.

You can drop me a message in the private message or via mail, I can work with you on your project.
