What's New in QuickBase?

The October release introduces these new features:

You also can read about these features in the online help after the release.

File Attachment Management

The Manage File Attachments page is used to manage all of an application’s file attachments.  Using this page, you can view the file size of each attachment, open individual files, and delete multiple attachments at once to stay within your service plan’s space limits.

Note: You need the proper permissions in the application to view and delete file attachments. Please check with your application administrator if you find that you cannot access or delete file attachments.

You can access the Manage File Attachments page in one of two ways:

  • From the Customize menu, choose Applications. On the Misc. tab, choose Manage File Attachments.

    OR

  • From the Help menu, choose Application Site Map. Click Manage File Attachments under the Miscellaneous heading.

Partners & Add-ons Menu Option

The new Partners & Add-ons menu option is now available from within any QuickBase application. This option takes you directly to our Partners page, where you can search for QuickBase partners with the business and technical skills to help with QuickBase application development or integration with other systems.

Hi Keith --

telephone # field

what is the correct format for 10 digit phone #s

also when using account #s it will not take symbols

re: telephone # field

Ten-digit phone numbers can be entered as plain numbers (18005553333), or just with dashes (1-800-555-3333). Either form will display as 1 (800) 555-3333 on forms and reports.  Phone numbers can also be entered directly with parentheses and dashes as shown.

The account numbers you refer to probably have a field type of  Numeric, which will only accept the numbers 0-9. If that is the case, then symbols are not allowed. You will need a field of type Text to include symbols.

Regards,

--Sybil
