  1. Hello, my idea is that when the customer registers a page will appear with the image of a business vip card with their name, customer number and the points they have accumulated.
    If possible, can this number be generated automatically?
    And this page should be created by registered customer or is there a way for the template to be created and the data to appear depending on the user accessing it?

    thank you in advance
