Users try to clear up but accidentally deleted a record. Is there a way to add a checkbox field like .. "Allow delete". before letting user delete the record?

You can do this with the image onload technique by redefining QuickBase's DoDelete() function  to call a modified version of DoDelete() with a second level of confirmation using the code in the pastie below:

Pastie Database

Attached is a screenshot of the second confirmation dialog box.

Obvious this solution has web scale as you can repeat the number of confirmations to as many levels as you desire.
