I want to prevent users from emailing other users through quickbase. I've checked the "hide email links" box and this removes the email link, however, in a report a user can click on another user's name and send an email. How can I disable this?

Hi Taylor,

I am not sure of a way to disable this within QuickBase.  One thought would be to create a Formula Text field that contains the field of your user/email field and put that formula field on the report for the users you don't want to email them through QuickBase.  With the Formula Text field the user wouldn't be able to access the email address.

Hopefully this workaround would be a viable option for you!  If not, I would encourage you to submit an enhancement request to our online product feedback forum, User Voice:
