The Quick Base Community will be read-only from August 19th-23rd while we finalize the updates to launch our new community site. On August 23rd the new community site will be live and accessible right here at this same URL with the full launch on August 27th with a special AMA with Jay Jamison on our exciting Cloudpipes news.
If you run into an issue while we are working on our migration you can reach out to our Care team via a Care case for help. There is a link to submit a case right on the Community home page or at our Contact Us page at www.quickbase.com. Thank you for your patience while we work behind the scenes.
I have around 293 fields I just uploaded via excel that need to be checkboxes but the import default option is the text box. Is there a quicker way to change all of the field types or do I have to manually change every field?
I suggest that you delete the fields and make them again by importing again. if you were to importt them with data in them in the excel sheet such that the data has either a 0 or 0 in the data, then it will probably guess correctly as to the field type.
But another question is .... 293 checkbox fields!!
That is a warning flag. maybe you should reconsider your app structure and get those into a child table. Without understanding your app, that sounds like you are asking for troubles.
