New default Quickbase branding

We've officially launched our new branding. While you'll start to see this new brand reflected across our key marketing channels over time, you can expect very minimal changes to the product experience. If you’re using our default branding, only the logo on the top left of the platform will be new. If you’re using custom branding, you’ll see no change at all.

 

Introducing the new My Pipelines page

We’re thrilled to present the result of our effort to improve performance and rethink and redesign the My Pipelines page. Our ambition was to deliver a more efficient way to organize and manage your pipelines, with modern design and technologies that address all your feedback. Here are some highlights:

  • My Pipelines page will load faster
  • New features help keep your pipelines organized. We’ve introduced new features such as tagging, filtering, and searching to help you keep your pipelines organized.
  • You’ll see more detailed information, statistics, and metrics for each pipeline
  • The new unified look and feel matches the rest of the Quickbase platform

The My Pipelines page is now in beta, available for everyone to opt-in. We highly appreciate your feedback — please let us know how we did.

 

Introducing new Pipelines Channels

  • Google Docs — Replace Text in documents and use Google Drive to expand the number of workflows you could design. See the Google Docs channel documentation for more information.
  • Google Drive — Organize your Google Drive and automate how your file storage is handled. Do this by triggering on File and Folder events and managing permissions, create, read, update, and delete operations. See the Google Drive channel documentation for more information.
  • Google Workspace — Automatically provision users in Google Workspace. This includes create, read, update and delete operations for users, groups and group members. See the Google Workspace channel documentation for more information.

 

New table report enhancements: Full color option and performance improvements

You can now choose how colors appear on new table reports. In report settings, choose pale coloring for more readability or full coloring to grab users' attention.

This release also includes the first in a series of performance improvements targeting slow interactions and report load times in the new table report. You'll see improvement when toggling full screen on/off and opening the column menu.

 

New table report enhancements: Dynamic filter display

2.22.2021

Throughout our open beta program, the most frequent piece of feedback we've gotten has been that while column filters are useful, you would still like to filter on fields that aren't columns in the report.

With the Feb. 22 release, the dynamic filters builders have selected in report settings will appear at the top of new table reports.

Applied filters will appear as tokens, similar to the current report experience. Click the “X” to clear each filter or use the “Clear all” option.

We continue to focus on quality. Below are the issues we fixed this month.

Note: Platform security, billing changes, back-end tooling, and performance are all ongoing commitments. Each release may include changes in these areas.

Issue Description
QBE15133 We changed the API name property to return the user’s name rather than screen name. We also added a screenname property to be backwards compatible.
QBE15149 We fixed an issue where we incorrectly displayed summarize values when grouped by negative numbers in chart and summary reports.
QBE15157 We fixed an issue where builders were unable to access the user ID of a user field.
QBE15158 We corrected the API fieldType validation error message that appears when you specify an invalid fieldType value to “create field”. The API now requires the correct syntax for this request.
QBE14971 The new table report now displays a single record report when you use a search widget. Previously, it displayed a report with only one record in it.
QBE15176 We fixed an issue where API query results produced inconsistent pagination when the query results were not sorted. A sort order is now required when you specify top or skip.
