How to determine if a field is being used or populated with data? if there are fields that are not required or not needed over time - is there a way to calculate this without having to write a formula for each field.

Ex. Field Name = Exporter 

Exporter Field in on 240 records

Exporter Field had data in 40 records

Calculate the % of fields that are populated with data

Right now there isn’t a way to calculate the percentage of the fields that have data in them. However, you can look at the properties of a field and click on the usage tab. This will show you where and how the field is being used throughout your app.

I apologize we cannot look into the usage of the fields at the level you are requesting, but our Product team loves feedback like this. I would suggest you share it on User Voice. User Voice is a new feature in QuickBase that allows users to submit their new feature requests, as well as vote on previously submitted ideas by other users.

You can access User Voice from your "My Apps" page, and then clicking the orange feedback button from the left hand side of the screen.
