get user variable

I need help!

I am building a training website. I would like each user to have a progression path that unlocks as they go.

My solution:

  • Add a “step” variable in the custom fields of user accounts.
  • Block access to a section if step = 1
  • Have a button that updates the step to unlock the sections

Problem:
I don’t know how to retrieve the “step” variable (no idea how to do it, API?)

Thank you for your help.

Webflow User Accounts isn’t designed with those types of capabilities. It’s quite complex to read & write user vars throughout your site.

Memberstack gives direct access to their user fields and you can update them from anywhere.
