Today we announced the Quick Base Visual Builder, a new feature that will fundamentally change the way people learn and build with Quick Base. We’re really excited about this release, and want to get as much feedback as possible from our community.  

This Thursday, March 28th, we’ll host our first-ever live AMA (Ask Me Anything) featuring our esteemed product manager Jon Arias. Jon will be here from 2-3 p.m. EST to answer any questions you have about the visual builder, other ways we’re making Quick Base easier to learn, or anything else you’d like to know.   

Submit your question in this topic any time between now and then. Jon will be in this thread live to tackle them on Thursday!

Thanks Alex.  I call them "dashboards", so I was thrown off by "pages".

App home pages / table home pages. They are also commonly referred to as dashboards.

You mentioned "table home pages".  Are there plans to allow for more of a dashboard on those as well?  Currently you only pick a single report.

Our current thinking is that all dashboards in the product should have a similar building experience and capabilities. So yes, we want to enable our customers to build richer table home pages that are closer to what you currently get on app home pages.

Visual builder looks great!  

Are there any plans to do something similar for the forms?  A visual forms builder would be great as well.

Thanks! Forms are on our radar for a future face-lift. I would keep a look out for enhancements to pages in the near future.

Forrest took the words right out of my mouth. Drag and drop form builder, please!

Oh, wait, it needs to be a question: May we please have a drag and drop form builder?

Drag and drop form builder is what we are all waiting for including the option to put our fields where ever we want without limitation on the grids.

But you guys did a great job with the app builder so I am sure will do so shortly on the form builder...

Good morning, Jon.  This looks like a terrific improvement.  Will it be retroactively available on previous applications/clients?

Hi George, yes, existing apps and clients have access to this Visual Builder. Our only restriction is apps with more than 80 tables are prohibited from using Visual Builder for now, but we are hoping to lift this restriction over time.
