Hello everyone,

We have been working on a dashboard for our customers where they can get an overview of things happening on their account. We want to embed articles/posts on the dashboard, so we chose Strapi as our CMS.

We also want our customers to dismiss the articles from their view if they choose, so strapi would deliver only non-dismissed articles for that particular user. Now the problem is, our strapi cms doesn’t hold any user information or their preferences, so we have no way of knowing which user has hidden which article. As of now, the CMS only delivers read-only content.

We’re wondering if anyone here on forum has worked on similar issue and would care to share how they came up with a solution. We’re quite new to strapi and are going through docs, but any idea/opinion will be greatly appreciated.
