QuickBase product release scheduled for Sunday, June 7th

We are rolling out another update to QuickBase.

Here’s a quick look at some of the new features that will be coming out with the June product release.

Formulas in form rules…huh?

Dynamic form rules are used by application designers to make forms behave differently based on specific conditions. They set the condition and tell QuickBase what action (or actions) to perform. Until now, derived fields such as formulas and lookup fields were not available for use in form rules.  With this release, that limitation is now gone.

From one of our development partners during the beta test:

“The new formula rule mods are amazing!!!! What a huge difference this will make for creating more user friendly forms.”

I certainly hope you’ll feel the same way.

Not to alarm you, but…

We’ve improved the Alert system that lives on your MyQuickBase page. QuickBase now visually alerts you when you get a new alert, distinguishes between high and low priority alerts and whether or not you’ve read them. The alerts management UI also now lets you delete alerts in bulk.

In addition, we have added a new alert to warn application managers if one of your application tables is approaching it’s size limit.

Notice to night owls

If you are QuickBasing, a new term I just made up, at 4:30AM Pacific on Sunday, please use the downtime required to launch these new features to contemplate how you will take advantage of the new form rules functionality. We have scheduled the upgrade window from 4:30 to 4:50AM. Long enough to make an egg sandwich.

Enjoy!

    Perfect timing (almost)! I was just trying to figure out how to use formula fields in rules last week.

    Thanks for the addition of formula fields to form rules. This will make a big diff in how forms rules are set up.
