Does anyone know if there is an option to allow people to access your quickbase program for View Only access, without needing to pay for a license for every single person

I am trying to allow 150 users to view "projects" and most specifically attached documents / status of a project within my custom program.  I have sales people that will be looking at this data, and do not want to pay for a license for every single one of them.  Do you know if there is a way to create access for them to view the documents without me paying for a license for every single person that will view the data?

You can set up your application to be accessible from the internet allowing anyone with the proper link to be able to access it.  However, just as I mentioned before, anyone with the link will be able to view your data therefore it's not secure.  There are ways to get around this however, so contacting a Quickbase Solution Provider and having them work up a solution for you would be your best bet.  However if you don't care about external users being able to access your tables then simply adjusting the permissions is all you need.

I understand that you are looking to have a link on Sharepoint to allow access to a report.



You could create a URL formula field such as this one and post the resulting link to Sharepoint.

var text URLONE = 

URLRoot() & "db/main?act=API_Authenticate&username=USERID&password=PASSWORD";   

var text URLTWO = URLRoot() & "db/" & Dbid() & "?a=q&qid=1";




$URLONE


& "&rdr=" & URLEncode($URLTWO)

I would like to contact someone to help with this same question. We do not want to use the unsecured access option. We need to know alternative options and we are trying to launch our app to our customers in 3-4 days and this came up recently and it is crucial. Please help!!
