Creating apps

To create an app:
  1. Plan your app's structure. This is a useful exercise, since it helps you think about what sorts of things you want to track using Quick Base. Even if you prefer to start with a pre-built app from Quick Base Exchange, this exercise will be useful, as it clarifies the categories of data you'll be working with, and brings out thoughts about items you'll need to customize.

  2. If you are on the My Apps page, click Create new app. Or, if you're already in an app, click the New App tab.

  3. Choose how to create your app:

    • Build together. We’ll guide you step-by-step to create the app you need.

    • Start from scratch. Start from the ground up and build a solution that meets your needs exactly. You have the power to define the tables, fields, and other information in your new application.

    • Import a spreadsheet. If you have existing data that you want to use, import it as a starting point for your application. When you do so, Quick Base analyzes the records in your file and presents you with choices to help you structure the new application around the data. You can also create the app by copying and pasting from another program.

    • Find an app in Quick Base Exchange. Apps contributed by the Quick Base team and user community provide ready-made solutions that address several common workflow and data-tracking needs. If you're concerned that a pre-made app won't quite fit your situation, don't fret. You can customize the application at any time.

    Note: If you don't have permission to create apps, we'll send a request to the billing account administrator on your behalf. You will be notified by email when you have been granted the correct permissions.
