Quickbase form to web for web data collection?

    I must have made a big assumption with QB.  I assumed once a QB was created the form for it could be used to place it online for web-based data entry and use.  Saw some archaic method (Form Wizard) but that just keeps locking up regardless of browser.  Is this solution just not primarily meant for web-based access? Hoping Im missing something obvious.

    When you say "web-based access", are you wanting to embed it on your website? Or do you simply need others to have access to the form?

    Possibly both?  Person in field can enter new record via web-based form.  Embedded fine, but was assuming a QB generated web URL for the form.  Might be using it backwards, looking more for web form emphasis with secondary backend data collection, while QB may be the other way around.

    Sounds like you just need to invite those users into QuickBase. QuickBase is already web-based and if a user accesses it on a mobile device, they will be taken to the mobile version of your application. While the interface for mobile isn't the best at the moment, I know that QuickBase is making every effort to bring it up to today's mobile standards. Additionally, you can build a stand-alone mobile page that you can host on your website's servers that can interact with QuickBase in the background if the standard mobile experience doesn't work for your users.

    Smartphone interface will be crucial.

    Todd -

    Please feel free to reach out to me using the information in my profile here. We setup something similar for a client and I'd be happy to discuss that with you.

    It's something you can do using the API; we have several web based forms that read fata from and update quickbase databases, works very well.
