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.
Quick Base is releasing audit logging. It is an additional cost and only retains logs for a certain period of time.
Appending fields are great for logging entries over time. Using these types of fields in conjunction with form rules is normally a good method for logging edits.
I have used Actions (may also use automations) to log changes to a field to a change log table. These changes over time are logged in a table, and can be surfaced via reporting. This method is great for analytics.
We also use some scripts to log changes in an application to a change log table, we call it advanced change logging. It can capture specific Table/Field changes and more.
