MemberStack seems to work quite well integrating into Webflow. Can anyone tell me if a members list is built up on MemberStack of say 100 individuals, is there an option to then feed these bios over to a Webflow listings area or would this need to be done the long way via a Webflow CMS collection?
Edit: I can see from your Demo videos that the company UnicornFactory.nz has done just this. I’d be very interested to find out the complexities in setting up a similar members area that allows registered users profiles be public facing.
I have a few screencasts that walk through various setups as you’ve described.
Try this one first for basic memberships with Webflow, MemberStack, and Zapier:
Followed up by a more advanced screencast walking through how to make those users public (read-only) and then editable (only when logged in):
Happy to answer any questions, just post them here!
Hi Chris, that’s excellent visual documentation, thanks so much.
I’ve never used Zapier before. Would a free subscription be sufficient here? i.e. less than 100 tasks per month?
Thanks @Cormac_Kerrigan the less than 100 tasks per month shouldn’t be a problem to get you started, the limitation is really the number of zap steps they allow you with the free tier. I don’t recall how many that is and how many are needed for each of those walk throughs.
Okay Chris, that’s great.
One final question; If they allow their members to sign-up using MemberStack and then we use Zapier to automate these members over top a Webflow collection, is there an area in MemberStack where they can vet each individual? i.e. Approve/Reject button for admins?
Not that I’m aware of. I believe that’s something you’d have to build. Off the top of my head, here’s how I’d approach that:
- Collect an email only as a “signup” via a native Webflow form
- Have Zapier capture it in a trigger
- Zapier dump’s that email to Airtable
- Zapier notifies you about new request
- Admin approves new user in Airtable (or whatever interface attached to it)
- An email with an “invite” link is sent out to this user
- The destination of that link is a MemberStack signup form - this could be on a hidden page somewhere within your Webflow site
- Now that user can signup to become a member!
Thanks @brok! If you have any questions feel free to post them here!
Thanks Chris! It’s a bit long winded and involves even more 3rd part programs. Ideally it would be a great simple setting for MemberStack to integrate. We are trying to sell MemberStack to a specific customer and it’s one of the first questions they’ve asked!
