So You Want to Learn Pipelines!

Where do you start? Have no fear, the Quickbase team is here for you. We’re working
hard to get you the resources you need to get started with Pipelines. Read on for all the places you can currently find them!

The App Exchange 

Our recommendation is that you utilize your Builder account for your Pipelines training. This way you’re learning in a controlled environment and not cluttering your company realm with training applications. If you don’t have one, what are you waiting for?? They’re free!! 

You may not have noticed, but we’ve added a new category to the App Exchange. Can you guess what it is?? You’ve got it, it’s Pipelines. If you click on this category, you’ll find some sample applications from the Quickbase team. The Pipelines Demo alone covers FIVE different Pipelines/use-cases! 

  • QSP Summit Demo 2021 - Replace TTI – Bree Mackey
  • Facilities Sanitation Management – Bree Mackey
  • Pipelines Demo – Bree Mackey 
  • Pipelines: Brady Oil Safety Compliance – Nathan Underwood 
  • Empower 2020 – Pipelines Copy Templates – Leanne Snoeck 
  • Pipelines – Create Unique Parents – Bree Mackey 
  • Pipelines – Jinja JSON Object Import – Bree Mackey 
  • Pipelines – SharePoint Lists – Bree Mackey 
  • Pipelines – Capture Box URLs – Bree Mackey 
  • Pipelines – Create X Children – Bree Mackey

Most of these apps include step-by-step instructions on how to build the Pipeline, as well as the YAML and instructions on how to import the YAML if you’re the type to dive right in.

  • What would be really great is if the Help documentation for Pipelines was a bit more robust. All of these resources are great, but they do not replace essential Help documentation as provided by the product owner. The current documentation - as of 8/20/2020 - is exceptionally thin and assumes users have an innate knowledge of the product already AND that they are fully versed in Jinja.

    Stop using other resources as a crutch and develop your own documentation.
