New RESTful API to fetch application events

Available in our new RESTful APIs, we’re adding a call that allows an app admin to pull a list of all trigger-based events. This will include the primary meta-data, such as who owns it. This API call helps builders when documenting or governing applications. The following types of event triggers are covered:

  • Webhooks
  • Quick Base Actions
  • Event-based Automations
  • Notifications
  • Subscriptions
  • Reminders

Note: For each type of event, only the base trigger information is included. Full details on what actions the events perform are not included.

 

New formula functions: NameOfMonth and GetFieldProperty

To assist builders both in simplicity of creating applications and more advanced use cases, we have added two new formula functions.

  • NameOfMonth: Many builders create “if” and “case” statements combined with the Month() function to output the name of the month (“January” instead of “1”). This formula function simplifies that for builders.
  • GetFieldProperty: For when builders are creating advanced use cases that require that application data be dynamic and configurable, this function allows builders to pull a subset of field properties for fields on the same table.

 

New table report enhancements

We updated the look and feel of our checkboxes to increase the color contrast and make them easier to read.

We also improved the interaction of our column headers:

  • Click on the entire header cell to initiate a sort rather than just on the field name
  • Visualize sort direction with improved indicators
  • More easily resize columns with wider handles.

 

Data classification: Additional preset classification

We added "Public” and an associated description as a preset data classification.

 

IP filtering: Additional notes field

We've added a free-text notes field that customers can fill out when adding or modifying an IP filter. Now admins can leave relevant notes about the IP addresses they’re adding to their list, giving more visibility into why they’ve been added.

 

Pipelines enhancements

  • The Jira channel supports custom fields - if you have custom fields in Jira, now you can search and edit them.

  • In the Outlook Channel you can search through all the calendar events without having to enter a subject field.

  • Webhooks Channel’s DELETE method now lets you send a BODY. This is especially useful if you want to use our new RESTful API Delete records call.

  • If your filter is not valid, a message will display to let you know.

What’s fixed in Quick Base

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
QBE014814

We corrected an issue where bar chart labels misalign when a date field is used as the x-axis and "Hide category labels with no data" is unchecked.

QBE014920

We fixed an issue where the Refresh button and timestamp for a connected table (Quick Base Sync) did not appear in the new table reports.

QBE014954 We fixed an issue where a table does not appear to some builders when they are creating table relationships.
QBE014963 Now when you save a report, it remains in the group you assigned it to.
QBE014981 The Field ID and Relationship now appear by default on the field page under Advanced Options.
QBE014755 We fixed an issue with the copy link function on the new table reports not working in Safari.
QBE011866 We fixed an issue where some category labels on a horizontal bar chart would be hidden when the chart had many options.
QBE014994 We fixed an issue where the hide search setting was not available when dynamic filter setting was set to none on new table reports.
