Can I put a form on the desktop that employees can fill out and send without being in quickbase? Example: employee suggestions- they each have a blank form sitting on their desktop that they can fill out and submit? Only our admin has access to quickbase and I'd like to keep it that way but not sure if that is a possibility.

You can add a quickbase form to your website and only give access to your employees. Give the form access to everyoneoninternet and it will post into quickbase. 

or just give your staff the link into quickbase to the form which allows them to post without logging in.

A lower tech solution is to just provide your employees with the link to add a Quick Base record directly.  Open up access to everyone on the internet, as Mick suggested  and allow them to add a suggestion.

Make a 2nd form with just some thank you words and use that for View for that Internet Role.  That way they will not be able to see any other suggestions.

ie no website work is required, all native Quick Base.

Abeer, you can take Add a new record and copy the url

add the dfid parameter with the form ID number if you are using an alternate form.

Just a note to say that we do this exactly and it works great. We have a very large number of users that touch the system in certain ways but aren't Users, actually. We have custom stripped-down forms written for the Public role, in cases where we want these folks to be able to interact with the system in a limited way (creating a support ticket, for instance), and we distribute the add record urls for those tables as shortcuts.
