Getting Quick Base to Recognize your Company's Email Domain

While you know that your company owns a particular email domain (like @samplecompany.com, for example), you may want to let Quick Base know too. Registering your company gives you these advantages:

  • Quick Base helps you locate users more easily

  • You can allow only those users in your company to create applications

Locate users more easily

Registering your email domain makes it easier for you to locate Quick Base users in your company. When you add users from the User Management page, the Quick Base auto-suggest feature can help you by suggesting possible matches it finds within your company as you type a user's name. And, if your company's email domain has been registered, you can use the Quick Base address book to browse all users in your company. Note that "auto-suggest" and company browsing work only if the email domain you used when you signed into Quick Base has been registered.

Allow users in your company to create applications

You and your colleagues can create and use applications, up to the limit described in your plan. And, as Billing Account Administrator, you decide who can create applications in your billing account.

If you want to restrict create permissions, but also want to allow users within your company to be able to create applications freely, you can. The first step is registering your company's email domain with Quick Base. Once Quick Base knows about your email domain, you can set up create permissions for only those users whose email address matches your company's email domain. Read how.

Determine whether Quick Base recognizes your email domain

Note: Only Billing Account Administrators can perform these steps.

To determine whether Quick Base recognizes your email domain:
  1. Access the Manage Billing Account page.

  2. Go to the Account Summary page.

  3. Review the Company Info section at the bottom of the page. If your domain is listed under Email Domains, Quick Base recognizes that you own the email domain.

Submit a request for Quick Base to recognize or change your company's email domain

Note: Billing Account Administrators need to contact Quick Base Customer Care to register their email domains with Quick Base.

To submit the request:
  1. Access the Manage Billing Account page.

  2. From the Account Summary page, in the Company Info section, click the link that displays after the Company field.

    The link is either your company's name, or none, depending on whether you've entered a company name.

  3. If this is the first time you've entered a company name, click Yes to proceed, enter an email domain in the next dialog, and click OK.

  4. Click Edit Email Domains.

  5. Click Set up my email domain to enter a support request to register or change your email domain.

    The Quick Base Customer Care team will process your request and contact you if they need any more information.

Note: You need to send a request to register your domain because the Quick Base Customer Care team manages email domain registration in Quick Base. This allows us to group billing accounts under the correct companies, but it also helps us to ensure that email addresses for major ISPs, such as @gmail.com and @yahoo.com, are not registered by mistake.
