Adding and removing connected fields

This topic refers to functionality that is not available to accounts on the Quick Base Essential plan. If the functionality described here does not match what you're seeing in Quick Base, your account is probably on this plan.

If you are the connection owner and an app admin, you can add and delete connected fields from a connected table at any time. You add and delete connected fields just like Quick Base fields.

If you are an app admin, but not the connection owner, you can add and remove Quick Base fields (but not connected fields).

To add connected fields to a connected table:
  1. Open the connected table from the Table bar, click SETTINGS, then click next to Fields.

  2. Select Using connected data. A list of fields in the data source that are not currently connected displays.

  3. Select the fields on the left that you want to connect and drag them to the right to add them to your connected table.

  4. Click Done. If you want to see the fields you added, click EXIT SETTINGS and then click Refresh data to refresh your connected table.

To remove connected fields from a connected table:
  1. Open the connected table from the Table bar, click SETTINGS, then click Fields.

  2. Select Using connected data. A list of fields in the data source that are not currently connected displays.

  3. Locate the field you want to delete, and optionally, check the usage of this field: Hover the mouse over the field name, then click Where is this field used? in the popup that appears. The Usage page displays a list of the places where your application references this field.

  4. Complete one of the following tasks:

  5. Click Delete to confirm that you want to disconnect and delete the connected field.

You can also add Quick Base fields to your connected table. These Quick Base fields are associated with the connected record.

Just like with any Quick Base table, you can create relationships among your connected table and other tables.

Note: You can add more connected fields to a connected table at any time, but you can’t add connected fields to existing Quick Base tables. Instead, create a new connected table that contains the data you want to access in Quick Base and then relate it to your existing Quick Base table.
