Embedding a 3rd party widget in the customer area
The easiest way to demonstrate populating your user dashboard is to embed a nocode application. Let's take an Airtable view as an example.
Once you are inside an Airtable workspace, if you click on "Share View" option in the navbar, you would see an embed code as follows:
The next step is to copy this embed code and paste it inside the main dashboard page. For this go under "Page Templates" > "Default Template > Edit.
Open up the "app" folder, and "main" page under your "Default" template by clicking Edit:
You will see the following Pug template code, that gets rendered to HTML when it is visited as a page.
Paste the iframe embed code as below. The final code will look like this:
+head("Welcome to your Application")
// Replace with your content
h1.text-2xl.font-semibold.text-gray-900 Welcome to your Application!
iframe.airtable-embed(src="https://airtable.com/embed/shr5QpOYHSZDOdKbY?backgroundColor=red&layout=card&viewControls=on" frameborder="0" onmousewheel="" width="100%" height="533" style="background: transparent; border: 1px solid #ccc;")
h4.text-gray-600 Let's get you set up.

<iframe class="someClass", attribute1=value1 attr2=val2 ></iframe>
Save the page, and click on the "Go to App" button on the left panel of your admin dashboard. You will see the following result:
Typically you would wish to deliver an application logic or data based on the user and his/her paid plan. For this the dashboard page embeds a JWT token with this information that would get decoded on your application server before sending the data/application logic.
