IsInGroup

Description

Returns true if the current user is a member of any specified groups. This can be used with Dynamic Field Properties to change the Background, Required and Visible properties of form fields.

Note: Group membership changes will only sync to the mobile apps on initial login. This also applies to when the feature is first enabled. This means that for group membership changes to take effect, users will need to log out and back in.

Syntax

The IsIngroup function syntax has the following arguments:

groupid Required.

[groupid] Optional.

Remarks

Note: The Group Id is available in the Web App when viewing or editing a Group. When you have the Group open to edit or view, you will find the ID of the Group in the Address Bar of your browser after groupid=
