Hi Quickbase community,

In quickbase, I use the form in a quite unusual way. I use it as a report to show only the data relevant to a particular market for example from different tables but where the master table is a list of markets.

I would like to subscribe to this form to receive it every friday. The idea I had was to create a notification with a trigger. The trigger would be a check box which is true when the day is friday. But the notification does not recognize it as a change so the notification is never sent.

Do you know a work around or do you have any ideas ?

Thanks,

Bastien

I you want to be notified of records in a certain condition only on Fridays then you need to set up a report to detect those records and then Subscribe to the report to come to you weekly on Fridays.  So you need a "Subscription".

The email Notifications only fire when the record is edited or created (or deleted) and the user hits "SAVE".

You will see a report of the records which meet the criteria.  There could be a hundred records which meet the criteria and you will get a report with 100 records.
