Our Next Release

We’ve been getting questions about our next release.  I can’t make any specific commitments to when our next release is scheduled or what will be in it because making announcements about future features/functionality can cause problems with how you recognize revenue.  I can say that our product management and engineering teams are committed to delivering updates to QuickBase and, more specifically, to building features that are visible and helpful to you…our customers.

While we’re on the topic of our evolution, let me share some of the great changes we’ve made in recent months.

 1. In the last year we have doubled our engineering team’s size and are continuing to hire incredible talent.  These additional engineers are helping us make significant improvements in less visible areas of the system, including:

  • Improving infrastructure and security to handle growth
  • Integrating and adapting to innovations in hardware and software
  • Creating development tools for software developers and more technical application creators

2. We’ve reorganized and reinvested in the sales and support sides of the business.  Specific examples include:

  • We’ve doubled the size of the support team to help ensure your support experience keeps up with the growth in our customer base, and
  • We have re-engineered many of the tools we use to support our customers.

Both these items are focused on helping us drive a more delightful customer experience and it seems to be working as the results of the survey we do with each case continue to get better.  In fact, lately we’ve been getting some responses like “Support was excellent” and “Speedy solution.  Really appreciated it!” so we know we’re on the right track.

We are committed to evolving QuickBase and, as a 5 year veteran of the QuickBase team, I can tell you it’s a blast being on the QuickBase team these days because of the great team growth and big improvements we’re making.

    Hello,

    Can’t wait for the next version! Something that you really need to consider for the future of QB is to have a mobile version of the site. Currently it is not possible to easily access QB data from a smart phone (like my Treo Palm 755p) but it will very useful for salespeople and service people who do not always are at their desks or on their laptop. It seems to me than having a PDA friendly QB site would increase QB usefulness without much work.

    Thanks again for a great product!

    Hi,

    We are looking forward to the next version. We would like to see a more robust predecessor successor option where we can dynamically shift the timing of tasks down to the minute. This is a must have for us.

    Will the next release have functionality in which we can ‘click & grab’ the QB columns and adjust the size of each column?

    Excited about the coming improvements. Would love to see some increased usability through Web 2.0-type technologies similar to Basecamp.

    Would love to see transitive lookups so I don’t have to copy an entire table of data from a master table to a child table and from there to a 3rd table. If [table 3] is a child of [table 2] which is a child of [table 1] then [table 3] should be able to directly access data in [table 1] without my having to lookup everything in [table 2] only to look it up again in [table 3]
