The October 27 release includes:
Introducing: QuickBase Exchange
QuickBase Exchange is a place where you can find and share free QuickBase apps. It is a good way to make use of other QuickBase app builders' expertise, and get a fully-functional app much faster than you could if you built it from scratch. If you have some great apps that you've built, we invite you to share them to the Exchange -- to help other app builders and get recognition for your skills.
Introducing: Drag & Drop App Home Pages
You can now build new app Home pages using drag & drop widgets: Reports & Charts, Formatted Text, Button Bar, Link Bar, Search, and Web Page. Your old Home pages will continue to work, but new Home pages are built using the new drag & drop functionality.
Introducing: Address Fields and Map Reports
We've added a new Address field type, which has built-in address search functionality, sub-fields for components of an address, and (on mobile) support for entering an address based on GPS coordinates. There's also a new Map report type, which uses data from an Address
field to display a set of up to 100 addresses as pins on a map.
We've made some improvements to our email functionality. Now you can rename reminders and subscriptions, choose who the email will be sent from. You can choose which day of the month a subscription is sent on, and select multiple roles to send a subscription to. For the full list, see the Release Notes PDF, below.
Reports Management Enhancement
The Manage Reports page, available from App Settings > App Management, now contains a column showing the number of times a report has been used.
