We have a Chinese user for our app. And we want to save their names on it, we can type the Chinese character but when we are saving it, it does not save.  I attached a screenshot of what we want to do. Thanks

Hello Mary,

Unfortunately at this time QuickBase does not support non-english characters.  Keep an eye on our release notes for upcoming features.

Hi Jeremiah,  Thanks for your response. May I know when is the possible date for the release of upcoming features or is there any other way that we can request this? Thank you

At the last EMPOWER 2016 user conference in May 2016, QuickBase declared that it is their goal to be a global company, not limited to just English characters.   They also announced that their Engineers were hard at work on a whole new User Interface called "Mercury".  Once can hope that they will manage to support the some or all of the English characters when that User Interface is announced.  But as with all technical features which QuickBase releases, there is not a firm published timeline.  They work on new features as hard as they can and release then as soon as they can.  But they clearly do understand the need.  You are not the only one asking for multi language support.

is there any other third party plugin we can buy to support this kind of feature? Thanks
I don't know but I doubt it.  You could try contacting Juiced Technologies, as they have a Rich Text Editor, but I'm pretty sure that what they do is to take so called Rich Text, such as what you could do in Word, and convert it to HTML to format it nicely for viewing on the screen.  But I'm pretty sure that they would be still limited to actually storing the characters as English characters.
