On Sunday, October 24, we’ll release a new version of QuickBase.

Streamlined process for creating apps

In this release, we’ve simplified and streamlined the process you follow to create apps. The Create Applications page presents a tabbed view of the three methods you use to create apps—creating from a template, starting from scratch, and importing data.

Use a field of type "Formula - URL (Link)". Set the cover text to "Click Here.." and then use a formula to point to a report that selects for only one record based on the Record ID# field which is unique for every record.

1. In the HEAD section of your Web page, add the following <script> block:

<script lang="javascript" src="https://mycompany.quickbase.com/db/dddddddd?a=API_GetRecordAsHTML&rid=n&jht=1">

Yes, you can now use QuickBase on your iPhone. While you can access pretty much any QuickBase feature from your phone, Intuit recommends that you limit your activities to using applications only. Find, view and update information in an application, but do not attempt to change the structure of the application via iPhone. Do advanced customizations on a full computer only.
