QuickBase Release Notes: March 11, 2012
In our March QuickBase release, we continued to improve the QuickBase UI and added the option to send email notifications from a user in a specific field. See the sections below for further information.

What's New in QuickBase?
The March release introduces the following new features:
You also can read about these features in the online help after the release.
New Look for the My QuickBase Page
We have made several changes to the My QuickBase page to help you quickly find your applications and create new applications from templates. These changes include:
New icons for applications and templates when you select Display > Icons
An application in which you are the manager
An application that you haven't used yet, such as an application that has been newly shared with you by another QuickBase user.
All other applications that you can access
The sections that used to appear on the left side of the page (including Admin, Get Started, Ask an Expert, and QuickBase News sections) moved to the right side of the page.
Send Email Notifications from a User Listed in a Specific Field
You can now send email notifications from a user listed in a specific field on a changed record, if you have set the notification to be triggered on single-record operations only and have registered your email domain with QuickBase. The user in the field must be in the company's email domain.
QuickBase sends the notification from the application manager’s email address instead if the field is empty, or if the user in the field is not a Registered QuickBase user in the company's email domain with permission to access the record's table. In these cases, a copy of the notification is also sent to the application manager.
Improvements to the Customize > Table > Permissions Tab
In our last release, we gave most of the tabs you use to customize your tables a makeover as part of our ongoing effort to make the QuickBase UI more intuitive. In this release, we are continuing to improve the look of the customize table tabs by releasing updates to the Permissions tab. Access this tab by selecting Customize > Tables from the menu bar on any application page.
You'll find the following changes on the Permissions tab, in addition to the new look:
The Fields column for Custom Field Access no longer appears on the tab, because this column supplied information only and did not allow you to set custom field access.
We changed the name of the Full Admin setting to Edit Field Properties to make the setting title more descriptive.
Return of Grid Edit Settings on the Customize > Table > Forms Tab
We're listening! In our February 2012 release, we removed the Grid Edit form settings for roles and reports from the Customize > Tables > Forms tab. We heard from several customers that these settings were useful, and in this release, we have returned these two Grid Edit form settings to the Forms tab.
We’re continuing to focus on quality and have fixed a number of bugs in this release. (As always, all QuickBase releases include bug fixes from previous releases.)
When using the GenAddRecordForm API call, passing in a User field or a List - User field value using email address or screen name did not work. The issue has been resolved.
If you had more tables than could fit in the Table bar on one screen, the Table menu displayed incorrectly for the last Table in the bar, and the Table bar displayed incorrectly. These issues have been resolved.
In a form, if you right-clicked on a text field and selected "Edit the field properties", you received an error message, unless there was another field on the same row. This issue has been resolved.
If you selected to display icons on the My QuickBase page, the Tools menu included the "Edit Categories" option, even though the Icon view does not include category information. This issue has been resolved; the option has been removed from the Tools menu in Icon view.
In a form, if you right-clicked on a field directly above the first column of an embedded report, the field menu was hidden by the embedded report. This issue has been resolved.
The link to Application Properties in the Application Site Map did not go to the correct location. This issue has been resolved; the link now opens the Customize > Application > Settings tab.
If you added a relationship while creating an application from scratch, a duplicate reference field was created as a reference proxy on the details table. This issue has been resolved.
The online help for the Test as Role feature contained incorrect information regarding how the feature behaves when the user is part of a group. This online help has been updated with the correct information.
Customize > Table Tab Issues
The following issues were resolved on the table customization Fields, Relationships, Forms, Reports, Emails, and Properties tabs.
QBE005811, QBE005833, QBE005837,
We resolved several general issues for the Customize > Table tabs, including:
QBE005802, QBE005804, QBE005806, QBE005812, QBE005819, QBE005820, QBE005832, QBE005836
We resolved several issues on the Fields tab, including:
The Forms & Roles and the Form Usage links in the Application Site Map should be combined into a single "Customize Forms" link that opens the Forms tab. This issue has been resolved.
The Delete button was always enabled on the Reports tab, even if you had only reports that could not be deleted. This issue has been resolved; the Delete button is only enabled if the report list contains reports that can be deleted.
