What's New in QuickBase?

This section describes the changes that appear in both QuickBase and New QuickBase for the February release.

  • The Roles setting Hide “Customize this Report” link on reports has been changed to Hide UI for creating or customizing reports.

  • (QBE008074) On the mobile site, text sections on a form now show the entire section, instead of only showing the first two lines.

 

What's New in  QuickBase?

Note: If your billing account has access to New QuickBase (see image below), this section is for you.

This section describes the role changes introduced in New QuickBase for the February release.

 

Roles Improvements

  • The Roles setting Hide “Customize this Report” link on reports has been changed to Hide UI for creating or customizing reports. This option now also hides the New and Organize controls on the reports panel.

  • There is a new Roles setting called Hide personal settings link, which will hide the My personal settings in <app> menu option in the User dropdown. This setting prevents users in that role from creating personal reports and emails.

  •  If you display a report from a hidden table, the Page bar links to that table and to REPORTS & CHARTS are now disabled.

 

Reports management improvements

Note: Reports management is only available to accounts and realms that have completed the upgrade to New QuickBase. Read about the upgrade.

  • When you create a report, you can now specify an existing group to put the new report into. When editing, and the Report Builder displays the group for a report.

  • You can now rename, delete, or customize a report while organizing them in the reports panel.
