This feature is only available to Professional and Business users.

Using this sign-in block, you can allow your users to log in using a random code sent to their email instead of entering a password. Let's quickly review the block settings.

The code will be valid for 5 minutes after being sent.

If the Only registered users can sign in toggle is enabled, only the users that already have an account in your Softr app will be able to sign in using this block.

The Domain-based signup option works similar to that of the Signup Form.

Here, you can customize the Email field placeholder text as well as the text on the send button.

Step 2: Code

The code field placeholder text and Signin button text can also be customized.
