Increased Visibility of Pipelines for App & Realm Admins If you’re wishing it were easier to see if someone else has built pipelines that are interacting with your Quickbase App, or simply wanting to know what pipelines other people have created, then you’ll be excited to hear about two of our newest features. In September 2022, we introduced a new view for app managers that provides visibility into any pipelines that are connecting to that app. We also rolled out a new way for realm admins to find comprehensive information about all the pipelines in their account. These new capabilities ensure that you’ll never have to be in the dark about anything that ...

Quickbase University is working on changing the way our customers maintain their certification credentials. We will move away from requiring professional development units (PDU’s) to targeted learning courses to maintain certification. Although this remains our plan, Quickbase University has made the decision to roll out these requirements beginning in 2023 for 2024 certification. As such, all 2022 certification credentials will automatically renew at the beginning of 2023 . This means that all holders of Quickbase 2022 certification credentials do not need to perform anything for 2023 certification. In the coming months we will release more information about ...

Keeping Your Apps Running Smoothly As They Grow Quickbase helps companies to see, connect, and control their most complex projects. Innovative business users are creating Quickbase applications fit for their team’s unique needs. And the result? Business teams are sharing the right information with the right people, at the right time. Over the past twenty years, we’ve seen this story play out many times. But as companies begin to realize the benefits of a unified platform like Quickbase, word gets out. Apps built for individuals spread to teams. Apps originally built for teams are shared with other departments. Each of these expansions builds on prior successes. ...

Many customers use our SAML authentication feature. A subset of customers may have the “Signed Authn Requests” option selected in their Quickbase SAML configuration. That option is a security enhancement that results in Quickbase signing the authentication requests made to the customer’s identify provider (IdP). In order to validate that the signed requests actually come from Quickbase, we provide the customer with a public authentication certificate. Customers using the “Signed Authn Requests” option must ensure their IdP is configured with the public authentication certificate from Quickbase. If the public authentication certificate configured in the customer’s ...

I was thrilled to be working at Quickbase when we launched our Pipelines integration platform, and all the exciting customer meetings and developments that followed. Customer builders dove right in, creating Pipelines, migrating Automations, and exploring our rapidly growing selection of Channels. After several meetings with these customers, I noticed one piece of feedback that was gaining popularity, “We can’t see other people’s Pipelines.” I immediately thought of the phrase, “Too many cooks in the kitchen.” I imagined a reckless kitchen full of chefs who were cooking the same meal but not seeing each other's creations or recipes, resulting ...

The responsibilities and permissions of the admin roles in Quickbase Within the Quickbase platform there are several admin roles that you may come across. Each has their own set of permissions and entitlements. Knowing which role (or roles) you are in, and what the capabilities of each role are can make a big difference in how you use the platform. We’d like to start with explaining the three most common admin roles that we have: Application Managers, Account Admins, and Realm Admins. Intro Bobby – Application Manager with Full Administrator Permissions River – Account Admin with Full Management Permissions Joyce – Realm Admin/Account Admin ...

Introduction I am pleased to introduce a significant tool that we are releasing in Quickbase called Performance Insights. This will help builders of Quickbase apps diagnose and resolve performance hotspots within minutes, without getting a PhD in software architecture. I want to share why this is such a big deal and the describe the unique challenges that we face at Quickbase when it comes to performance. What makes Quickbase special? I joined Quickbase more than 20 years ago as an early engineer. Over the course of those twenty years, I've had the great opportunity to work on many of the core features. Even after all that time, I'm constantly amazed ...

Guess what, everyone? Neil and I are starting a new series where we’ll interview Quickbase employees who were former customers. We plan to dig into their Quickbase experience prior to joining the organization, how they used the platform, and uncover tips and tricks to pass on to you. You’ll want to follow this because they, more than anyone, understand what customers go through. As former customers, they’ve walked in your shoes and can relate to pain points in ways employees who never heard of Quickbase can’t. Best of all, their experience and enthusiasm of Quickbase is leveraged each day. Nearly every department has an employee who was a former customer. ...

Hello, Quickbase Community! Or as they say in the UK... Hiya, you alright ? I’m Caroline Stuart-Freas, a new Senior Customer Success Manager based in London. That is right, Quickbase is going international! We have a growing team of new Quickbasers that have been hired outside of the USA and it’s very exciting to be a part of this team as the company expands. A few facts about me: I’m an American living in the UK. I’ve been here for 4.5 years. My son was born here and has a British accent. So, he says things like “Mummy, I am going to throw this rubbish in the bin” which is very weird but, it’s adorable. I even say certain things now like trousers ...

On August 1, 2022 we are going live with quickbase.com/account. Our new accounts page will be your hub for making changes to your Quickbase plans and entitlements (upgrade, downgrade, cancellation). Don't worry you will be able to access this new hub from right inside of your Account CSR, in the same place where you have been accustomed to making changes. With the new process, we will walk you through gathering the important information for your change. Once we have collected all the important details they will be sent to a representative who will help you through your changes. Ensuring that you’re on the right plan and entitlements for you is ...

We all know that in the world of software, things move pretty fast. If you’ve been keeping up with all the recent product releases here at Quickbase then you’ll certainly agree that we’re no exception! For the most part, all that speed is typically a good thing, but we’ve learned that if you don’t stop once in a while, you can miss things. That’s why we make the conscious choice to periodically stop and take stock of how all these new product updates are working for you, our customers. Over the last year, we’ve listened to feedback from many of you about different aspects of the Workflow Automation and Integration capabilities that are supported by our Pipelines ...

Is it mid-May already? 2022 is flying by and I’m currently digesting all the notes I took at my very first Empower conference at Quickbase. One of the best things about attending virtual conferences is that attendees can decide how they spend their time without distractions. The goal I set for myself was to go to as many Pipelines sessions as I could to pick up tips that will help with passing the Pipelines certification exam. Since I decided that I will take the exam at the end of June, this was my chance to connect with the exam authors, listen to Pipelines product managers, learn from other session attendees, and keenly observe how our expert trainers approach ...
