If you’re using Open Source frameworks like Wordpress or Drupal, you can use form plugins to post to Quick Base. There’s a 3rd party plugin called Zapier, which helps you map to Quick Base, but I discovered another method that does not use Zapier.

In this example, I’m using the Ninja Form plugin. I posted another tutorial (https://community.quickbase.com/quickbase/topics/capturing-query-string-parameters-on-web-forms) if you prefer to use the Quick Base form wizard, but you may have a preference using a ‘no code’ plugin that has conditional logic and web hooks built in. Ninja Forms has a premium add on called Webhooks, which I’ll be using in this tutorial.

If you’re using public facing forms for data collection purposes and don’t need a token:

  • Go to your App Home Settings
  • Create new role called “Internet” (or whatever). Click the checkmark on the Add column next to the table you want publicly accessible.


  • Next, go to the Users table and click the ‘Share app with new user’ button. Select the role “Internet” that you just created. 
  • Next, in NinjaForms, you can map your fields like the following screenshot. The remote URL will be your action URL minus any parameters.

All your field ID’s can be mapped using ‘_fid_#’, which you can find in your apps table settings.

Great post, for those using Wordpress and ContactForm 7, there is a plugin call "Third Party Integrations" that I use that works like this.
