How to Check the Status Page 

Subscribe to this page to get the most updated information on Quickbase's platform status. I like to compare checking the status page to looking under the hood of a car. Is everything running smoothly? If your apps, reports, or Pipelines are moving a lot slower than usual, you can check the status page as part of your troubleshooting. This page will tell you if there’s anything atypical happening on the Quickbase platform that our product team is addressing.  

Be sure to bookmark the status page to get a real-time status report with one click.

How to use the App Exchange 

The App Exchange is a source of pre-built Quickbase apps made by other users like youIt's a good way to make use of other Quickbase app builders' expertise and get a fully functional app live faster than you could if you built it from scratch. Any app you get from the App Exchange is customizable, so you can make changes to suit your specific workflow and processes. To access the App Exchange, go to the “My Apps” page in Quickbase and click “explore sample apps”. Click here to learn more about using the App Exchange. 

In addition to the App Exchange described above, we have a new version of the exchange in beta! It is available as a tab on the top left side of the screen next to the solutions tab. What is neat about this beta version is that you can access both apps and formulas that you can use anywhere in your apps. Click here to learn more about this beta version of the exchange.
