QuickBase Release Notes: January 23, 2011

We’re ringing in the New Year with new features designed to make it easier to manage and share your QuickBase applications.

What’s new in QuickBase?

Look for these new features in the January 23, 2011 release of QuickBase:

Allow more users to create QuickBase apps

You know that QuickBase helps you solve business problems—why not let more members of your organization in on the secret? Unleash the creativity and wisdom of your team by giving more members permissions to create applications within your account.

Billing Account Administrators can go to Manage Billing Account > Users with Access to quickly and easily assign Create App permissions for many users at one time:

Import users using the Users menu

Have you ever had trouble finding the option for importing users? Well, search no more! We’ve added this option to the Users menu, putting it front-and-center, where it belongs:

You can still import users using the “I Want To…” link on the Manage Users page…but we hope that adding this option to the Users menu makes it easier for you to find this option when you need it.

Change to API_DoQuery: Include Record IDs

For QuickBase API users, we’ve also enhanced the API_DoQuery call. We’ve added the includeRIDs option, which lets you specify that you want record IDs returned with each query. Check out the QuickBase HTTP API Guide on January 23 to find out more about this option, and to see examples of how it’s used.

What’s fixed in QuickBase?

On January 23, you’ll also see that we’ve resolved a number of issues. (As always, all QuickBase releases include bug fixes from previous releases).




QuickBase returned an HTML response when users tried to upload a large file that exceeded data limitations using API_AddRecord or API_EditRecord. This issue has been resolved. QuickBase now returns this XML reponse:




     <errtext>Data limit exceeded
- request too large</errtext>



The Find menu always defaulted to All Tables, regardless of the setting you specified in Application >Advanced Settings. This issue has been resolved; QuickBase now sets the default table in the Find menu correctly.


When QuickBase calculated the standard deviation for identical values under .05 (example: 3 records with field values equal to .049), the calculation for the standard deviation incorrectly equaled -1; it should have equaled 0. This issue has been resolved.


Users running reports with Ask the User filters were prompted to choose either the value or the value in the field when specifying the right criteria The value in the field option no longer appears when users run Ask the User reports.


Need global search to all applications inside QuickBase account



Thanks for new features!  One that I will LOVE to see is the ability to do a search across all applications inside my Quickbase account.  We have multiple applications with more or less the same format (so we can better customize applications for different region of the World) so it is hard to make a global search and for now need to do a search on 8 different apps (in our case) for a specific reporting.  For instance all our apps track repairs made in the field.  Each region (8) have their own app.  People are asking how they can search for a specific repair that will look at all 8 apps repair tables at once.


Thank you again.



Thanks so much for the

Thanks so much for the feedback--I will be sure to pass this request on to the Product Management team!
