QuickBase users may notice small discrepancies when rounding
and comparing floating point numbers. For example, Round(37.785,0.01) returns 37.78 instead of 37.79. This
is not a QuickBase-specific issue; the discrepancies happen because some
floating point numbers cannot be represented exactly in the binary format
required by computers and are instead approximated.
In the September 2011 release, we will be changing our password requirements for all users who log in interactively using QuickBase authentication. These include strengthened password requirements, and the introduction of a security question and answer.
We actively moderate comments to
the KnowledgeBase, and comments may be edited for length or content before publication.
If your comment contains one or more links to irrelevant
sites and seems designed solely to promote those links, it will be reported
to our spam filter. Likewise, if your comment contains obscene or pornographic
content, it will be reported to our spam filter.
Prior to the July 2011 release, we
allowed the behavior of file attachments stored in QuickBase to be handled by

downloaded rather than opened.

In a recent webinar a customer asked how they might use an email notification to embed an "approve" and "reject" button such that when their client opened their email, they could make the selection right there in the email and the result would be to update the record and log the client's choice to include an audit trail of the person, the decision date and time.
