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.
