Hi,

I am wondering if QuickBase saves a record of all sent emails. I need to show that an email was sent out.

Thank you

Hi Sevak,

Unfortunately what you described is not currently available with native QuickBase.  I apologize for any inconvenience this may cause you.  This is a great suggestion and one that many of our users have expressed as well.  I encourage you to contribute to our product feedback forum post on this:

https://quickbase.uservoice.com/forums/111823-quickbase-product-feedback/suggestions/1903985-email-l...


This will go right to our Product Development team for review.  I hope to see this feature available in a future release!

Hi Sevak,

I will say two other options are possible to assist you with this whilst you await Quickbase to develop this functionality.

You can either specify an inbox and ensure all your email notifications sent out also go that inbox, these should be sent within seconds of each other so should be fairly accurate. You will of course need an email inbox and a user for this (unless sending openly).

The other option which wont provide a copy of the email sent out, is if sending the emails out via a click button, is to drive this to also create and date and time stamp in a field, this will give you a clear indication of when the notification was sent. the are typically sent within a few minutes.

I set up the emails to go to a specific email address which is checked via Outlook. Then with custom rules using the subject line I have created forwarding rules which not only sends the emails to the intended recipients, but also shows everyone copied on the email.

Hi Sevak,

A while ago I added some instructions on how to setup your e-mail client (e.g. Outlook) to help you overcome some limitations imposed by QuickBase. I hope this can help you as well; the link is as follows (it is the reply that appears at the top, as of today):

The instructions show you how to forward e-mail to known recipients who are not users of your QB application. You can use the same approach to simply put your e-mail in another folder, or any other classification you might want to do inside of Outlook. The rules in Outlook are pretty powerful!
