Is there any way to add users to Quick Base realm without adding them to a specific application?

    Hi,

    I'm curious as to the use case for adding users to a realm and not an application? I myself am uncertain, but I'm curious as to why you asked.

    I am the realm administrator, but I have certain applications which are managed by other members. I want to add the user to QB realm so the other app manager can invite them to the app. I am not sure if the other app manager if directly invites the user, he/she would have access.

    Anyone with Sharing permissions can invite a new user to an application, and thus the realm. Being a registered user of any app in your realm places that user in the realm. I have a realm management tool that gets updated every 24 hours by a 'quickbot'. So, anyone I invite today will not show up in that realm management tool until the next day. This may not be the case with your realm however.

    As far as I know, any new user you invite has to be directly invited to an application within your realm. I'm still learning new tricks in QB, so I can say this here and now, and someone will come behind me and say something else that sounds off-world.

    For what it's worth...

    If you have account admin access you can 'provision users' which adds them to the account, without actually adding them to any apps.

    Curious as to the 'why' behind this?

    What does this do? Just curious.

     And does that use up a license?

    It doesn't use a license until they register.  But what it allows for is adding users to groups.  Then you can add an entire group to a new app, rather than individual emails.

    It helps when you have a large list of users to add to an app, or a large list to remove from an app.

    Basically is just a higher level of user management when you deal with a lot of users.
