November Community Newsletter

November Community Newsletter

November means that for many of us the weather is starting to cool off but here at Quickbase we are warming up for a whole lot of exciting events and announcements. 

Events Hosted by Customer Success 

With November and December being busy months we are combining our November and December Release Review webinars into one on December 8th. Come hang with Customer Adoption Managers Manny De La Cruz and Matthew Brisch as they demonstrate how to take advantage of the newest Notifications enhancement, the new Timeline report, the new customer feedback workflow, and more!

Preparing for Automations Retirement 

The next step in the retirement of the Automations feature is coming in January 2022, when the creation of new automations will be disabled. Pipelines is now the recommended solution for orchestrating workflow in Quickbase. Pipelines can handle all the same workflows that Automations can, and adds support for cross-system integration and more powerful business logic. 

Our exciting new Automations-to-Pipelines migration capability is now live and ready to help you prepare to make this transition. This tool is visible on each of your Automations and can help you convert almost any Automation into a Pipeline with just a couple of clicks. Learn more in our help topic. 

Unlock the Power of Formula Queries 

Formula queries allow formulas to operate on data from other records and other tables in the same app – no relationship needed. Formula queries are perfect for builders with experience with formulas looking to unlock even more insights from their data. We are excited to announce that with our October release, Formula queries are now available to all builders. 

Ready to dive in on your own? We have help articles and examples of using formula queries to identify duplicate data and build your own sequential numbering unique to your business to help you get started building your own formula queries. We will also be hosting a formula queries webinar December 16th so make sure to save the date and keep your eyes open for more information.
