Populate Contact Entity with logged users

Hi,

I'm new to Portals, so I'm guessing what I'm asking is simple.

I have a Portal, with a simple Form, linked to an Entity named "Applications". When a user fills and sends a new application, the entity gets the data. All good.

 

But I also have an entity called "Contact" (the standard, already created by Microsoft).

 

How do I populate this entity Contact with the data of the logged (Authenticated) user of my Portal, when he sends a new application? So when a new application is sent, I get two entities populated: "Applications" with the data of the form, and "Contact" with the data of the Authenticated user of the portal.

 

Thanks!

Hi

 

every authenticated user in your portal is already a contact record, there is nothing you need to do there

 

take a look at this thread to associate the current portal user with your record being created:

Thanks for the reply,

Actually I'm using an entity based form. Should I use the Web Forms in order to get data from the logged user?

 

you can use entity form or web forms, both should work fine
