"ask about making it (the new field) a default column" - are there global settings?

The option to add a new field to the default report is located at the table level in the default report settings.  By default our quickbase environment sets this as "automatically make this a default column".   Adding every new field clutters up your default table very quickly and ruins much of the look and feel of default pages and views.  For novice administrators on my team this setting is burried so deep, I have to constantly show them how to turn this off for every table. 

Is there any global setting that I can adjust and make ""ask about making it (the new field) a default column" the default?

Hi Jon,

Currently the only way is by changing that option on each table.  If you feel this option would be a beneficial feature in QuickBase, I would encourage you to submit feedback regarding this via our Feedback Platform - UserVoice - at http://quickbase.uservoice.com .  This forum is used by our development team to explore customer suggestions for enhancements / changes to the platform. Many of the items that have been suggested by customers have already been incorporated into QuickBase and I would encourage you to participate as well!
