More persistent features and new toggle behavior for the New Table Report

Last month we made the filters section persistent so the report would remember if you left it open or closed. This month, we're adding two more types of persistent modifications: resized columns and chosen spacing.

  • Resized columns will save the adjustments you make to column widths so you won't have to reconfigure them after you refresh the page or come back later.
  • Now, by default, your report spacing will use the selection made in your user preferences, but you can override this on each report by selecting Relaxed, Normal, or Condensed spacing in the More Menu.

Get more details for these new persistent features by visiting Quick Base Community.

We also changed the behavior of the New style (beta) toggle on reports. Now when you slide the toggle on, it will default to the new style for other reports you view.

  • The toggle is specific to each user, so you can try the new experience without disrupting others in your company.
  • If you need to make exceptions and use the old style, you can still toggle the new style off on a report-by-report basis. And if you're not ready to try the new style yet, just leave the toggle alone to continue working with the old style.

File attachments

In order to improve the performance of reading file attachments, we store recently accessed file attachments in a fast cache for 15 minutes. If the permissions on a given file attachment change while it is in the fast cache, the new file permissions will not take effect until the fast cache expires (up to 15 minutes).

QuickBooks Online new data types and channel enhancements in Pipelines

Our team is hard at work enhancing channels in Pipelines and we are pleased to be releasing our latest enhancements for the QuickBooks Online channel. In addition to managing customers, inventory, invoices, and time tracking, you now have access to 3 more types of data:

  • Vendors
  • Purchase/Expenses
  • Bills

We continue to add functionality to channels and QuickBooks Online is getting even more enhancements this month:

  • Ability to assign invoices, expenses, bills to Projects
  • Added Linking functionality to all the resources
  • Ability to connect to sandbox companies

Quick Base data classification

The Data Classification capability allows Quick Base administrators to categorize their applications based on the types of data within the app. Admins can label applications based on varying levels of data sensitivity. You can define the classifications, including a description of the data type, and give guidance to users and builders based on the class of data and level of security needed.

New authorization type for Microsoft Exchange connections for connected tables

We’ve added OAuth 2.0 as an authorization type for Exchange connections used for connected tables (also known as Quick Base Sync). Microsoft requires that connections to Office 365 use OAuth 2.0 authentication. Basic Authentication (username and password) is still an available authorization type for connections to internal Exchange servers.

New formula function

We are adding a new formula function to our already extensive list. The new WeekOfYear function will resolve the extra work builders have had to do to retrieve this information. Review the full list on the formula functions help page.

Updated map style

After the October release, we will be updating the style of the map box. The update will also deprecate several styles including the high contrast map style.
