What's New in QuickBase?

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

Improvements in Role-based User Interface Control

QuickBase now provides role-based control over emailing and printing QuickBase data. Using the per-table controls shown when editing a role (on the User Interface tab), you can disable printing and email controls in QuickBase. Note that these controls do not prevent the user from emailing or printing QuickBase data using other programs.


Checking Hide Email Buttons/Links for a table will hide the Email button on records, as well as the Email menu on reports, embedded reports, and search results. In New QuickBase, it will hide the Email link on the Page bar, the More > New notification menu option on records, and the More > New subscription menu option on reports and embedded reports and QuickBase search results.

Checking Hide Print Links for a table will hide the Customize > Print this page menu option, as well as the various options to print records, reports, embedded reports and search results. In New QuickBase it will also hide the Print this page link in the Page bar on the app Home page.

 

Improvements in Importing Users

When importing users into apps without a default role, QuickBase now prompts for a role.

 

List All Reports

QuickBase now offers the ability for an app administrator to manage all reports (common and personal) in the app in a single location. The Manage Reports page is accessed by clicking Customize > Application, going to the Management tab, and clicking Manage Reports. In New QuickBase, the page is accessed from the app settings page – click App management, then Manage Reports.

 

Confirm Security Answer

When you set or enter the answer to your security question, you are now required to enter the answer, and then enter it again to confirm. This feature prevents inadvertent errors when entering the answer to your security question.
