Quick Base Release Notes

Here’s What’s New with Quick Base

Features

11.15.2020

 

New RESTful API to fetch application events

Available in our new RESTful APIs, we’re adding a call that allows an app admin to pull a list of all trigger-based events. This will include the primary meta-data, such as who owns it. This API call helps builders when documenting or governing applications. The following types of event triggers are covered:

  • Webhooks
  • Quick Base Actions
  • Event-based Automations
  • Notifications
  • Subscriptions
  • Reminders

Note: For each type of event, only the base trigger information is included. Full details on what actions the events perform are not included.

 

New formula functions: NameOfMonth and GetFieldProperty

To assist builders both in simplicity of creating applications and more advanced use cases, we have added two new formula functions.

  • NameOfMonth: Many builders create “if” and “case” statements combined with the Month() function to output the name of the month (“January” instead of “1”). This formula function simplifies that for builders.
  • GetFieldProperty: For when builders are creating advanced use cases that require that application data be dynamic and configurable, this function allows builders to pull a subset of field properties for fields on the same table.

 

New table report enhancements

We updated the look and feel of our checkboxes to increase the color contrast and make them easier to read.

We also improved the interaction of our column headers:

  • Click on the entire header cell to initiate a sort rather than just on the field name
  • Visualize sort direction with improved indicators
  • More easily resize columns with wider handles.

 

Data classification: Additional preset classification

We added “Public” and an associated description as a preset data classification.

 

IP filtering: Additional notes field

We’ve added a free-text notes field that customers can fill out when adding or modifying an IP filter. Now admins can leave relevant notes about the IP addresses they’re adding to their list, giving more visibility into why they’ve been added.

 

Pipelines enhancements

  • The Jira channel supports custom fields – if you have custom fields in Jira, now you can search and edit them.
  • In the Outlook Channel you can search through all the calendar events without having to enter a subject field.
  • Webhooks Channel’s DELETE method now lets you send a BODY. This is especially useful if you want to use our new RESTful API Delete records call.
  • If your filter is not valid, a message will display to let you know.

What’s fixed in Quick Base

We continue to focus on quality. Below are the issues we fixed this month.

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.

Pipelines updates

Significant DocuSign channel enhancements

The Pipelines team has been hard at work enhancing the DocuSign channel. These are just some of the enhancements coming in the September release:

  • The ability to connect to a demo account.
  • Filter events based on the envelope subject.
  • Sending an Envelope for signature from template step – all signees with their respective fields are visible and the fields can be dynamically filled in with data from third party services.

Quick Base file attachments

  • We now support file attachments in the Quick Base channel. This will now allow you to send file attachments, uploaded to Quick Base, to external services as well as upload attachments from external services to Quick Base.

Webhooks channel now has PATCH method

  • The HTTP PATCH request method, available with the September release, applies partial modifications to a resource, by providing an entity containing a list of changes to be applied, to the resource requested. This helps expand third-party integrations in Pipelines that the PATCH method in Webhooks can’t provide.

More new features for the New Table Report

  • With the new Save/Save as functionality you can save any changes made on the fly to your table report. The functionality will be the same as it is on the old report, but we’ve updated the interaction and visual design to reduce accidentally saving over common report settings.
  • This month we begin the release of our Persistence feature which will allow, certain changes you make on a report to stick with you. No more re-adjusting when you view the report again or when refreshing the page. This month we will be releasing the first of three persistent components, the state of the column filters tray. In October we will be releasing two more persistent components resized columns and chosen spacing.

Improved RESTful API HTTP status codes

In the September release we will update the HTTP status messages for RESTful API upsert requests to include HTTP 207 (Multi-Status). The status provides a more accurate indication of variable success and failure of the request. We had previously returned HTTP 200 (OK) status.

Mobile offline specific forms

Today, forms with form-rules are not available for offline data entry. With the new mobile offline specific forms, builders will be able to specify a specific form to be displayed when a user accesses the form using offline mode in the Quick Base mobile app.

Coming soon:

Upcoming change for Exchange connections for connected tables

On October 13th 2020, Microsoft will end Basic Authentication (username and password) access for Office 365 customers. Because of this, Quick Base will soon be adding OAuth 2.0 as an authorization type for Exchange connections used by connected tables (also known as Quick Base Sync). Additional information will be sent to existing Exchange connection owners prior to this change.

Updated Map styles

Looking forward to our October release, we will be modernizing our Map reports. An important note about this upgrade: We will be retiring rarely used styles. This means Maps that use the retired styles, will be migrated to the default report behavior. Users that will encounter this change will be notified by in-product messaging.

ISSUEDESCRIPTION
QBE013706We corrected an issue when opening a new Quick Base tab and getting the login redirect instead of MyApp page since SCIM enabled.
QBE014514We fixed an issue when creating a new report on the My Report & Charts screen where customers were defaulted to only creating a table report and did not offer any other report type option.
QBE014674We fixed an issue with field text displayed as a link, in the New Table Report, being compressed.
QBE014687We corrected a problem with multiple scroll bars being displayed on the app dashboard when loading a report through and embedded report.
QBE014688We corrected a problem when using a report URL in a dashboard widget. When turning on the New Style toggle, double or triple vertical bars were presented on the report.
QBE014825We are correcting the way text in a rich text field is handled. Instead of replacing the text with an empty string, we now only remove the {{<script>}} and {{</script>}} tags leaving the remaining text to appear as plain text in the rich text widget. This will affect those customers who have disallowed tags in their rich text widgets.
QBE014826We corrected the format of our start and end dates, on a timeline report, from milliseconds to ISO dates.
QBE014833We updated the format of the Workdate field when using the getReport endpoint on the new RESTful API to the ISO format of YYYY-MM-DD format.
QBE014835We fixed a problem with the Currency field upsert silently accepting invalid strings.

Features

New RESTful API capabilities

We have new capabilities for our RESTful API’s! Please visit https://developer.quickbase.com after the August release for more information and be sure to look for the new relationship endpoints. You will now have the ability to get, add, and modify relationships as well as upload and download files.

File attachment caching

We are introducing caching behavior on all files. With our August release we will cache for five minutes per user. If a file is changed after you download it, you will not see the changes until your cache expires.

Pipelines upgrades

We are introducing the ability to fetch securely stored CSV and JSON files. By looking up a file in a Box, Dropbox, or OneDrive channel, you can now use the file-transfer-handle as a URL in the CSV Handler or JSON Handler channels. The new functionality ensures the permissions necessary are used to access and open your files.

Pipelines channel and site updates

We have disabled the Workday pipelines channel in the August release, which has been available in Beta since April. We are working with Workday to enhance the security and workflow capabilities of our channel, and will be re-introducing the channel once testing is complete.

We are removing the Upcoming section from the Channels page to help us focus more on the Pipelines channels and capabilities that are most relevant to you. We encourage you to submit feedback and request new channels in our UserVoice forum, which will help us continue prioritizing the capabilities that are most valuable to you.

  • Quick Base specific response headers will now be shown in a tab when testing in the portal
  • General content updates to provide more detailed and helpful information

Operation took too long update

We have updated our messaging in regards to our reports in Quick Base with information on where to get help to optimize your report.

QuickBooks Authorization for Quick Base Sync Connections

Starting August 1, 2020, Intuit will no longer support the Internet Explorer 11 (IE 11) browser for QuickBooks authorization screens. This means when you create or reauthorize a QuickBooks connection for Quick Base Sync connected tables, make sure to use one of their supported browsers (Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Microsoft Edge, Safari 11 or newer). See this Intuit alert for more information.

Quick Base security enhancements to HTML file attachments

We have disabled, by default, the ability to view HTML file attachments within a browser. Realm admins will need to enter a Care case from their portal in order to override this new feature.

3.15.2020

New channels in Quick Base Pipelines

We are adding five new integration channels to Quick Base Pipelines:

  • Dropbox
  • Mailgun
  • Microsoft Sharepoint
  • Shopify
  • Zuora

Note: On Tuesday, February 25, 2020 we began a phased roll out of the Pipelines technology for Quick Base customers. We will be turning the feature on for groups of customers in phases. We will be adding these five new channels as they become available between now and the March 15 product release.

Mobile: Custom app/realm header colors

Now, if you have set up custom branding colors at the realm or app level, these colors will appear on mobile as well.

Sandbox: Realm admins can require use

Realm admins now have the ability to require sandbox use on an app-by-app basis from the Admin Console. If a realm admin selects require sandbox, app builders must use a sandbox to make any schema changes and cannot disable the sandbox feature.

Upcoming change to Gmail connections for connected tables

We will soon be making an update to Gmail connections used for connected tables (also known as Quick Base Sync). This is a required change from Google. After this update, existing Gmail connections may fail and will need to be reauthorized by the connection owner. The date of the update and additional information will be sent to Gmail connection owners before the update occurs.

To reauthorize a Gmail connection:

  1. Select the user dropdown on the Global bar, then choose My Preferences.
  2. In the My Connections section, select the Gmail connection you want to reauthorize.
  3. Select the Reauthorize button and sign in to your Gmail account.

Features
Create an app with Visual Builder

With this release, when you create an app whether you choose Start from scratch or Build from a template, you’ll go directly into Visual Builder to add or modify tables and fields, then save your new app. You’ll also have the option to take a tour to guide you through app building.

Field properties: view sample data

Maintaining your apps just got a little easier now that you can preview the data a field contains from the Field Properties page. Click the sample data link to see the value from the first record in the table.

Enhancements
Increased limits for Kanban reports

Accomplish even more with your Kanban reports, now that you can include up to 15 columns with up to 100 cards each.

Note: Leveraging this many cards or columns requires web browsers to have sufficient performance with features such as drag & drop. Chrome and Firefox will perform the best.

Improved performance for the user picker in built-in fields

We’ve improved the performance of the user picker used in the built-in record owner and last modified fields used in areas such as filtering records on advanced find, permission building, and while creating a report.

Updated error messages

We’ve updated the styling and content for a number of error messages, including certain report, table, and app-level error messages you might encounter.

Updated styling for Settings icon

We’ve update the styling for the Settings icon so it’s more consistent visually with other areas of the product; the background is now white instead of blue.

Improved advanced search

Advanced search on the My apps page now only returns apps in your realm, even if apps have the Everyone on the Internet role.
