Our Knowledge Base covers a wide variety of technical topics, from the basic to the complex.
How can I avoid placeholders?
During the import process, if you import your resources, or contacts, by name into a user field (such as Assigned To), QuickBase may not recognize the names as users (To learn more about User fields, please see our Manage Users in an Application help topic.). However, if you import email addresses into a user field, QuickBase will recognize the email addresses as users instead of creating placeholders (To learn more, please see our About Placeholders help topic.) For steps to replace placeholders, please see our Convert Placeholders to Real Users help topic.
For more about importing in general, please see our Import Data from Outside QuickBase help topic.
