Provide Field Help

As a responsible developer, you always have your users in mind when you design a Quick Base application. In spite of the fact that you make your data-entry forms easy to use, an end user may still have a question about how to fill out certain fields. You can easily provide guidance by attaching help to any field. When you do so, Quick Base displays a question mark icon next to the field. When a user passes her mouse over the question mark, a yellow tool tip appears, containing whatever text you want.

To add help to a field:
  1. Open the table you want to customize from the Table bar, click SETTINGS in the Page bar, then click Fields.

  2. Click the field that you want.

  1. Click the Properties tab.

  2. In the Field help text box, type whatever text you want to appear when you move the mouse over the i () icon.

  3. Click Save.

    Note: Field-level help appears on forms.
