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.
If you run into an issue while we are working on our migration you can reach out to our Care team via a Care case for help. There is a link to submit a case right on the Community home page or at our Contact Us page at www.quickbase.com. Thank you for your patience while we work behind the scenes.
To add a placeholder user, you will need to import the person's first and last name into a User-type field. For instance, if you have a field called Assigned To, and want to create a placeholder user with my name, you would create a spreadsheet like the one attached.
Then, you would go to the Home page of the app > Import/Export > Import into a table from a file, and choose your file.
When you run the import, QuickBase will create one blank record, with the placeholder user listed in the User field. You can go ahead and delete that record. Then if you go to the Users list you'll see the placeholder user there.
