What is the New QuickBase?

Our upcoming QuickBase release is different from our other releases. We've worked hard to give QuickBase a new, streamlined UI - and that means lots of changes for you, our customers.

QuickBase users may notice small discrepancies when rounding and comparing floating point numbers. For example, Round(37.785,0.01) returns 37.78 instead of 37.79. This is not a QuickBase-specific issue; the discrepancies happen because some floating point numbers cannot be represented exactly in the binary format required by computers and are instead approximated.

By default the QuickBase API returns information in XML format.

But API_GetRecordAsHTML and API_GenResultsTable return HTML tables. API_GenResultsTable can also return records as CSV (comma separated values) and as (TSV) tab separated values.

Yes! QuickBase works on your iPhone. While you can access pretty much any QuickBase feature from your phone, Intuit recommends that you limit your activities to using applications only. Find, view and update information in an application, but do not attempt to change the structure of the application via iPhone. Do advanced customizations on a full computer only.

The QuickBase API allows Web page designers, Perl, Java, and Visual Basic developers to access QuickBase from their pages or code.

No anyone who programs in an environment that supports HTTP POSTs and GETs can make use of the QuickBase API. This includes but is not limited to C, C++, Python programmers as well as Cold Fusion developers.

By creating a trial account, a new billing account is created. Because you are using another billing account's applications, QuickBase can merge accounts and pull your trial account into the company account. This will also transfer any of your applications and/or users belonging to your trial account into the destination account.

Each API call accepts a parameter called "udata". This parameter is passed back in the XML response. You can create an application with a single client side XSL stylesheet that displays data differently depending on the value of the udata parameter.
