In the new UI, is there a way to clear flags from all tables in one click--the way we used to be able to in the old UI? Seems you have to do it table by table.

Do you or any of your users need to see the flags at all?

Yes. I like to see flags, but I want to be able to get rid of them before do something so I can see what then changes. If that makes sense. But, yes, I like the flags!

I've searched and only see the ability to do it by table in the new UI. However, I found a quick and dirty behind-the-scenes way of doing it for the full app.

If you dump the following URL string into the address bar of your browser, (just change [YOUR_NEW_DOMAIN_NAME] to whatever your new sub-domain is and [APP_ID_HERE] to your app id) and hit enter, it looks like it wipes the new and updt flags just fine.

https://[YOUR_NEW_DOMAIN_NAME].quickbase.com/db/[APP_ID_HERE]?a=QBI_ClearFlags&withConf=1

Once you hit enter, you'll get screen that shows the XML output from making the API call. From there you can simply go back into your app and the flags should be gone for you.

That's a little more complicated than I was hoping for. Maybe I'll wait and see if they address it in an upgrade.Thanks, though!
