Hey Folks,

For enterprise organizations, what is the best way for different users to edit content on dynamic pages built in Duda?

    Well, sadly there is no real easy way! Duda can not assign access to one row of a database with an internal collection. You would need to use an external collection and see if they could allow a user to log in via email and update just their row! Then when they make changes, wait the allotted time frame for the data to refresh to see content live.

    IMHO, the approach to dynamic pages is completely wrong. It is all centered around adding content to minute cells in a spreadsheet. Populating the database with a spreadsheet (csv etc..) should be an option for bulk additions, but normal updating should be form based, complete with WYSIWYG fields.
    We had this 20 years ago, even before WordPress.

    Thanks for the tips so far folks. I think the challenge I am having is communicating clearly how easy it could be for them to update content without leaving Duda in the case of external collections.

    I like this idea. Do you setup a passworded protected page for them form?

    @Ken
    I don't do this with Duda.
    My point (sorry if it's not helpful) is that D*da is doing it wrong.
    But what I describe is/was built into our sites (by our developers). Updating/creating the dynamic pages would be a part of the admin menu, similar to adding a blog in Duda. The customer, if self updating, would have access to admin, just as they do with Duda now.
