Last night, QuickBase elves were busy applying another small update to the QuickBase service. Okay…they weren’t elves, but they did leave a couple of presents for you. In addition to the usual small fixes, we reintroduced one feature and added a new one.
Users are typically deactivated to remove a user’s access to applications in an account, but sometimes, just like the cat, they come back. Therefore, we have reintroduced the ability for an Account manager to reactivate a user. In order to deactivate or reactivate a user account the Account manager must own the e-mail address of the user. To find out the criteria for determining whether you own a user’s e-mail address and more about reactivating an user account, please go to the Reactivating a User Account topic in the QuickBase Help.
Ever want to make a change to a field, but think twice about because you are not sure what impact it will have on existing views, forms, etc.? Now, before you modify or delete a field, you can easily see where it is being used in the application. On the Fields and Tables page, we have added a Usage button to the right of the field name. Clicking this button provides a list of views, forms, fields, roles, emails and exact forms where the field is currently be used. Clicking on the elements name in the list automatically takes you to the proper location to view or modify the field reference. For more information on checking field usage refer to the QuickBase Help topic, Checking Field Usage.
