Dear experts,

Can you help me with specific fields change list? I have 436 fields in my table, but only 132 of them are included in the specific fields change list for Quickbase Actions. 432 fields are marked as reportable and 115 searchable. I tried to remove one field (that was on the specific fields change list) from the table to see if more fields will be added to the list, but the number of fields in specific fields change list just decreased by 1. I need some other fields to be added to the list and do not understand how the list is formed.

Are the missing fields formula fields or lookup fields.

Although I'm not aware of official documentation on this point, I believe that in a Quick Base Action, changes can be detected only in:
  • Data-entry fields, i.e., those that can be entered manually on a form for the table
  • Formula fields calculated from data-entry fields.
This excludes:
  • Lookup fields
  • Formula fields that are computed from lookup fields.
In effect, the Quick Base Action can only be triggered by changes made directly in one of the table's records, not indirectly by changes made in other tables that cause lookups to change.
