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.
I am sure a similar question has been asked several times with different scenarios. I understand there is no native solution, but is there an alternative way which could dirty the record and I could use that to issue a notification to the person nominated?
most task "Due dates" are a single day. You are aware that quickbase can't send out a single notification when a "due date" come up. but.. you can make a report that shows only "Today's" due tasks, and have that sent our every morning via a subscription.
In addition, if your tasks are set up properly, you can make a personalized report for people's dashboard that only shows their assigned and active tasks (possibly sorted by due date for example)
