QuickBase Community – What would you use?

We are working to bring an enhanced community site to our customers, partners, and prospects. As such I thought I would ask the community (that’s you!) what sorts of things would be interesting to you, and what he would be looking for in an online community about all things QuickBase.

Our existing community forum is primarily being used by the technical developers to deliver tips on how to build applications. While that’s great, and we certainly want to encourage more of that over time, we also want to start engaging the less technical users and creating connections between our customers. What do you think you might have in common with other QuickBase customers?

For example, how about a community of people who are managing projects? Would you be interested in discussing project management tips and tricks with other QuickBase users? What about pointers on getting started with QuickBase, or how to roll out QuickBase to your business team? Would you be interested in reading about this? Would you contribute your knowledge to other QuickBase users?

What about helping maintain and comment on our help and knowledge base articles? Would that be useful to you?

Do you have examples of other websites that do this well? Other companies we should be emulating?

If you have any feedback, please comment below. Additionally if you would like to have a longer conversation, please drop me a line at phil_gross (at) intuit.com

Thanks for your input.

    I would be interested in learning how others are managing projects. I think Dell has a great community. You could also check out the thousands of Ning communities.

    I think it would be great if you could sort the articles by Date Modifed, rather than just Date Created.

    Also, I would like an RSS feed for the Forums, as well as, KB articles. Maybe this could be done using Yahoo! Pipes?

    This combo would be a great benefit. As I build sites, most of the time people struggle with the planning part.

    1. A place to discuss business best practices on implementation, gathering requirements, dealing with change management would be great. Get buy in from users.

    2. Another area on technical how to’s.
