Yes, this can be achieved through QuickBase Webhooks.

Webhooks allows performing an action in the same/different table in the same/different application when any record add/update/delete event occurs.

The Webhooks can be created in the table settings --> Webhooks page in the table which triggers the change to other tables.

Here are some of the aspects to be kept in mind while using Webhooks:

1) You need to generate a user token (from My Preferences page) to use it with Webhooks for authentication
2) Minimal knowledge of QuickBase APIs is needed
3) Create a formula field with the destination table ID mentioned to refer it in Webhook.
4) To update the records - Record ID# of the target table record to be available in trigger tableĀ 


Here's a sample webhook created for your reference:
