Stop automatically adding new fields to reports.

    Here's the problem. Whenever I create a new relationship and add lookup fields or summary fields, QB attaches the new fields to reports. How do I stop this from happening? Is there a universal app setting where I can set the program to "not add new fields to reports" similar to the "When new fields are created Do Nothing" option for forms?

    It really a Quick Base deficiency, that the "do not automatically add fields to reports", is not respected when adding relationships.

    I suggest that you put in a support ticket claiming it is a bug.  They will tell you to put in a User Voice.  Then post a new Question this forum with a link to the User Voice and ask people to vote. You will get a lot of votes.

    We have Service Workers now so there is no deficiency.

    This has been an annoyance for a very long time.  I put it in user voice back in 2015
