How are Reports Related to Views?
In the QuickBase UI, you use a report to specify filter criteria for which records are to be retrieved. Each report has its own view. In short, the report and view work together to get and show only the specified records and specified columns (fields) within those records.
When you save a report, you have the option of saving it as a shared report. This saved report is available for use in API queries: it has a query ID (qid) and queryname (qname) that can be referenced in an API query instead of using a query string. The saved report is called a saved query in the API documentation.
When you save the shared report, you can allow all application users access to it, or you can restrict user access by allowing only a specific role to access it.
