https://media.trustradius.com/product-logos/6J/d1/6907GPDBP0VI.PNGMy relationship with Quick BaseOur main reason for using Quick Base is for case management. We have to report to several different government agencies as well as track and manage data for our clients. Within case management, we have implemented task management and template based correspondence. We also use it for other issues such as employee onboarding, employee equipment tracking, supply ordering, scheduling meetings, resource list, contact management, and community outreach.,Easy to get going quickly. With just a few clicks, a little data entry, then voila you have a form and report automatically created by Quick Base for you. Great support team. They're super quick to get back to you when you can't find an answer in the knowledge base or community. Customized dashboards based on user role makes it easy to make sure each team member has easy access to the tables, forms, and reports they need. Availability across multiple platforms and devices. Our team has such a variety of devices. Some use PC's, some Macs, some tablets. Having it all online and accessible has been super useful.,Customization is lacking. Font sizes, background colors for form fields, adding images to forms and reports, etc. These are all big issues for us. We keep working around it but it's not ideal and we have to use a lot of hacks and a lot of unnecessary development time that could be better spent in other areas. Not being able to have a customized header and footer has been really difficult. We have to use a lot of forms for our reports because they are easier to customize but when you email and print they don't look good. We've had to lower the quality of our deliverables to our clients which we get complaints on frequently. Notification emails only allow for a predefined user list or one email. We often have to send a notification to multiple people. So rather than everyone getting the same email at the same time, we have to send out separate emails or email ourselves then forward so everyone can respond. Once again, extra time and effort that could be better spent providing services to the community (we're a non-profit). Lack of integration. You can use third parties but the cost becomes too much especially as a non-profit. It's hard to justify spending thousands a month on integrations for our team when we work off of grants and charitable donations. So being able to integrate with Outlook or Word to get around the lack of customization is not affordable and then you're dependent on a third party as well as Quick Base. Inability to perform searches on the data directly. Having used Access, SQL, and MySQL it's very limiting being restrained by Quick Base. Report links and lookup fields work but it's ridiculous that the workaround is including (sometimes hundreds of) lookup fields. This, of course, adds to the time of development needed and also slows down the tables. Not having many-to-many relationships. While the hacks work, for the most part, the amount of extra development time that is needed to tweak the tables, the forms, and the reports adds up. This is also why reporting can only come from child up which once again, you have to spend so much time on hacks to display the data you want. Lack of instructions available. While Quick Base university is quite good, doing a google search usually entails wading through a bunch of Quick Base community questions. At the beginning of development and for simple things, it's always easy to find the answers but as development continues and more customization to your company's business model is required it gets harder to find solutions. I'm sure as time goes by it'll be better as there will be more information available.,7,In general, Quick Base has allowed us to quickly and easily build apps to track data using our business model. As our company has complex business models and I'm used to developing without major limitations and easy integrations (think MySQL + PHP or Access or SQL + VB), Quick Base requires a lot of tweaking to accomplish our goals.,Microsoft Access,For simple data collection and management, Quick Base is really easy especially if you use their Quick Base University. By far the Quick Base University is a huge selling point and a major factor in getting over the learning curve. There are plenty of examples and the Quick Base App Exchange is great to get an already working template that you can customize.,Building and deploying business applications faster Improving our ability to drive insights from our data Improving collaboration across one or more teams Solving a specific business challenge Building and deploying an application (or multiple applications) that meets our exact needs,We're in constant update and development mode as our industry has constant changes to regulations that we must adhere to. We're also still a new project so things are constantly changing as we improve our business processes. It's been very quick and easy to add new fields to forms and reports.,18,1,Task management. Logging correspondence with everyone associated with a specific case/project. Tracking progress on each case. Collecting data/research.,Supply ordering & management. Streamlining employee on-boarding. Easy accounts receivable.I LOVE QuickBase and here is why...It's used across the entire organization and addresses a multitude of business process. From customer data, event management, project management, survey capturing, contact us forms, customer care ticket log, to communications management etc.,Easy to learn and flexible in use - It's very easy to learn and extremely flexible in use. Highly customizable. Provide training, help blogs & ready-to-implement templates. Seamless flow between data capturing, business process & metrics - If you're going to capture data in QuickBase you'll automatically set up business process & metrics along with it. Great Customer Service and regular enhancements - Their customer service is fast, friendly and helpful. Monthly releases ensure QuickBase stays flawless. At least 5 big new enhancements a year.,Calendar reporting The calendar view of reports needs to be updated to function and look better.,10,We have been able to quickly build several solutions to address a specific business need and roll it out within days.,Salesforce Lightning, Salesforce.com and TaskRay,If you know how to create an Excel sheet that fits your needs, you'll be able to create a QuickBase application. If you understand data relationships you'll be able to build more complex applications. If you know how to code, you can pretty much do anything you need. We have several non-technical employees that have built their own successful applications that are used to manage projects or for interacting with customers.,Building and deploying business applications faster Improving our ability to drive insights from our data Improving collaboration across one or more teams Solving a specific business challenge Building and deploying an application (or multiple applications) that meets our exact needs,I prefer to build my own, although there are some great applications out there. I personally use the QuickBase developed applications to get inspiration, find new ways of solving something or taking bits and pieces to integrate into my applications.,100,No,Price Product Features Product Usability,9,Yes,You can quickly create an app with various tables and data fields. relationships between tables is very easy to do once you understand the concept. There are no limits on which tables can be related to each other. Dashboards and reports are easy to create and can be shared via link or making it a homepage for a specific role. This makes it easy to create homepages that have relevant reports, links and actions based on the role.,Form creation can be a bit cumbersome due to the UI of that feature.,Yes, but I don't use it,10QuickBase - A flexible and easy project management solutionWe have used Quickbase as our primary ERP software for the past several years. We use it to allow our employees to manage top down from the director level to the project manager to the inside field manager to the technician on site. It allows us to capture virtually any type of data (time on site, specific inputs, etc.). It also allows everyone to see the work loads and individual schedules.,Flexible - It allows for virtually any type of input and in many ways is limited only by the skill of your programmer. Segmentation - Allows for as many parents/child tables as necessary allowing you to store your data however you choose. Simple - The coding was relatively easy to learn and straightforward.,Limited user permissions - The permissions in Quickbase are done by role rather than user. It would require creating individual roles for each user to restrict views and also enable views. Dashboards and all tables are limited by roles rather than users. Limited support - Quickbase does not have the support that other more widely used softwares do. This cannot make learning the code for difficult solutions even more difficult. Single Table Views - I am not able to create multiple table views for the same user. All of the data must be included in the same table and manipulated by the inputs within the table. This is still very flexible, but can be rather cumbersome to code. Limited Data Extraction - They have a data cap for .csv extraction. I was required to purchase a third Party ODBC to be able to pull data from Quickbase into Crystal Reports. This solution, however, worked great.,9,One of the main benefits of Quickbase is its flexibility. You are able to adapt modules and tables on the go and with minimal limitation. It is, however, limited by the standard database Parent/Child relationships, which seem to fluster many, but that should be expected. With proper organization of your tables and understanding of databases Quickbase suffers very few additional limits and all can be worked out or around.,MS SharePoint,As I have mentioned earlier, the language of Quickbase is relatively simple and similar to that of Excel. Simple applications could be created by people with limited developing experience, but to create more complex and robust applications it will require time and experience. Application creation can range from a simple application being created within an hour to very complex application requiring days or even weeks. Application creation time is, obviously, dependent upon the individual's experience and ability.,Building and deploying business applications faster Improving our ability to drive insights from our data Improving collaboration across one or more teams Solving a specific business challenge Building and deploying an application (or multiple applications) that meets our exact needs,I have developed, maintained, and updated numerous Quickbase applications. The code and the organization thereof has always been simple and straightforward. Sometimes it can be difficult to find the specific setting for a desired output and you will spend some time searching through the many different settings pages, but once you locate it you will be able to achieve the desired outcome every time. The support for the Quickbase code and settings is also somewhat limited when compared to other larger more widely used softwares, which can be frustrating when trying to find answers, but over all it has been a positive experience.,50,1QuickBase is the best platform I've found for developing custom applications for running a small businessWe are an Internet marketing and website development company, founded in 2001. We use QuickBase across our entire company. We have about 45 employees in Golden, CO and another 25 technical developers in India. We use it to manage all of our processes and relationships. The main applications are CRM, project/task management, billing, time tracking and actuals-vs-budgets analysis, client lead generation tracking & analysis, employee role and team management, attendance, and a million other details (like client login accounts and information) that we need to manage our business.,project management and creation of new projects from templates very flexible and adaptable database setup of tables, fields, formulas and relationships low overhead scripting with Javascript, but usually not necessary because point-and-click setup features are so rich and adaptable investment in the continued development of the platform has added many goods and used features since we started with QuickBase in 2015,I hate needing to go outside the QuickBase platform to do things in PHP and cron, but right now cron-based automations and actions are still weak Performance can be a bit slow for bulk updates of 20k records or more integrations with Google Apps are hard and require developer assistance formula functions are good overall but several are very wonky and hard to implement, and overall functions would be much easier to use if they emulated industry standard platforms like Microsoft Access & Excel I really miss the level of ease and functionality for setting up add/change/delete log tracking of records and fields that came built-in with Salesforce. From what I hear this is in the near future development pipeline for QuickBase. there are ways to get around this limitation with a bunch of development work, but I really wish that QuickBase would implement real database integrity so that when a parent record is deleted, all of the children get deleted as well (obviously with confirming prompts and such) Validation rules need to get broken out from forms and stand on their own within the database platform architecture. The big problem is that updates that are made through grid edit and through the API will not know about or adhere to validation rules. This is a terrible thing that can cause problems, and as far as I'm concerned, it is the single biggest loophole that QuickBase developers need to plug. At first, when we started with QuickBase, I almost felt like it was a deal-breaker, but overall we have lived with this limitation reasonably well. What I have to do is run through a long list of monthly integrity checking reports to find anomalies in the database that have crept in through this loophole. Having a hard limit of 500 MB for a single table 's maximum size is rather harsh, and I have two tables in particular that I have to constantly beat back through various maintenance techniques to keep from running out of space. This is a big waste of my time, and we have to archive or purge a lot of data that our CEO would otherwise like to retain online!,10,Yes! This is the single biggest reason why I chose QuickBase, and it was one of the best choices I have made in my career. Nothing I have used previously comes close to leveraging my rapid application development time like QuickBase.,,I think this area is very over-hyped by QuickBase marketing. I have 40 years of custom application development experience for small businesses. It takes a fair amount of knowledge, experience and aptitude to do custom application architecting and development where the app is done right the first time, and will work well in the long-term as future application additions and changes are thrown into the mix. Anyone can get anything working in a Google Sheet, but that doesn't mean it will be a good app that is able to be supported and extended going forward. Same thing with QuickBase. There is a little bit of investment of time that is required to be a good administrator, system architect and developer, even on QuickBase. Even with the depth of my experience, I still used a 3rd party QuickBase development partner for 3 to 6 months to learn the ropes quickly and get up to speed so that I wasn't creating a crap application. It really helps to understand how to think and develop in QuickBase before you start. It's different from Access, Excel, Salesforce, etc. Once you know how to think in QuickBase and some of the good tricks, everything flows very nicely. But there is a learning curve for anything as complex and sophisticated as the QuickBase platform.,Building and deploying business applications faster Improving our ability to drive insights from our data Improving collaboration across one or more teams Solving a specific business challenge Building and deploying an application (or multiple applications) that meets our exact needs,I do this almost every day. It goes very smoothly. I am constantly building out new functionality as our business logic changes.,70Quick Base - You need this.We use QB to manage our projects at energy generating facilities. We use it from idea through approval through execution and completion of all generation projects. This helps us keep track of ideas and assign resources to project tasks. This also helps us in our budgeting and resource planning.,Data consolidation - We no longer have to gather emails, scraps of paper, and notes to enter project ideas. No more lost ideas and notes as it is all in one place. The simplicity of QB makes it so that even the most novice computer user can quickly figure out how to enter useful data. Even if they don't understand databases, they can fill out forms to provide information to others. The reporting feature makes it easy to customize the information for the audience. For example, our VP doesn't need the same granular detail that a field supervisor needs. With the personalized reporting, we can provide the customer with the appropriate amount of data.,We have had to go to an outside service provider for a useful Gantt chart function. This has been cumbersome and costly. This is an area for improvement. It would be nice to have an onboarding experience for someone who inherits apps when an administrator leaves. It would be great to have a workbook or training on the top things to do to get to know your app. A cheat sheet of some kind of formulas would be good. The formula helper is better, but I would like to see something like what is available in Excel.,9,Yes. Before QB, we were entering all the information on a clunky MS Access database. Only a few people were able to access it and when changes needed to be made, we had to write down notes and bring them back to our offices to make the changes. Now, we can make the changes live.,,I took an HTML class in college when Al Gore was just inventing the internet. Since then, I have no coding experience. However, after a short lesson or two, I was able to build and customize my own app and make it useful for my customers.,Improving our ability to drive insights from our data Improving collaboration across one or more teams Solving a specific business challenge Building and deploying an application (or multiple applications) that meets our exact needs,I am new to my role, so have no experience with this.,325,5,Project Management Project Management Project Management,Human Resources,10,Microsoft ProjectReal Experienced Insights of Quickbase !!We use Quick Base to offer effective solutions to our client for their processes implementation and automation to add efficiencies to the business to improve productivity. Also, we use it for our in-house implementation to give solutions/tools to operations and other groups.,Analytics and Dashboard- it’s one of the must have areas which takes good enough time and effort but with Quick Base, it’s absolutely amazing to have it quickly by some configurations. Workflow- setting up role-based workflow is a major need for most of processes automation and QB is simply awesome to make it happen. Notifications, reminders, and subscriptions- it’s a great feature which QB offers with great simplicity. For an application with low/medium user base (count of users) QB is cost-effective solution reducing time to market by its RAD capabilities.,Quick Base licensing model - Per user license cost of QB is fine but for clients having bug user base overall licensing cost is too high. Quick Base should reduce the licensing cost for such needs. Quick Base should also think about offering a flexible licensing model where per user license cost of low usage or occasional users should be extremely low. As all application users are always user application that frequently and need to access occasionally e.g. once a month etc. I know based on total users on instance QB offering little better per user license cost but that discount is quite minor. This way we can bring the attention of customers need an application for the big user base. EVOI with SSO exception - Quick Base provides an option to add everyone on internet access for any application which makes it open for everyone having URL of application to access the application on internet without chewing licences for each user. It's good but many time we have a need of an exception on EVOI to allow everyone but authorized users of an organization getting authenticated by SSO. This feature can help QB to bring the attention of multiple clients who need to use it for their employee as EVOI. Notifications/reminders on an Adhoc schedule - QB offer great features of notification/reminders but as of now it's either trigger based on some event or with the schedule its dependent on the value of the application data field parameter value. But any time we have a need to send email on the frequency of daily (with/without weekend), weekly, monthly or on a particular date/time etc. That is something missing from QB. Themes & Animation for improved UI - Although QB offers a standardized UI and it's quite good. But if we need to change the entire look and feel with quick options like themes etc. it's not possible. Also providing animated controls like a carousel, shutter up/down out of the box within an application will improve the user experience. I know it can be done on an HTML code page but I think making it available like standard out of box component will add to RAD capabilities improving the user experience.,8,I agree Quick Base is a perfect solution for building, deploying, and maintaining custom business applications faster and easier. My organization realized huge benefits in terms of FTEs reduction, cost/time saving, improving productivity and adding efficiencies. Also, we have offered Quick Base to customers where the time ask was to achieve above-mentioned criteria and our proposal and actual implementation did complete justice to gain customer satisfaction.,MS SharePoint, KiSSFLOW and JIRA Service Desk,It's fairly easy for non-technical citizen developers to build an application. We have seen team members without any development experience, doing wonders with Quick Base. It needs an understanding of QB configurations for which training/videos are available with Quick Base university. Using its API in code pages need little experience of handling it and can make better by introducing intellisense for users assistance.,Building and deploying business applications faster Improving our ability to drive insights from our data Improving collaboration across one or more teams Solving a specific business challenge Building and deploying an application (or multiple applications) that meets our exact needs,Yes, it's absolutely easy. Many times I've worked on enhancing the existing Quick Base application to another level and doing that was really interesting as Quick Base offers most of it out of the box to manage this task.,,200,Talent Acquisition, Development, Learning/Scheduling Processes Implementation and automation Support and Case Management,We build Quickbase Integration with outside solution without any 3rd party vendor. e.g. Getting feed from outside system to an sFTP and syncing it with Quickbase on schedule basis thru APIs and .Net. And taking the updates back from QB to outside system with the same way. Added a chatbot on Quickbase responding to users query. Also made the bot available outside responding to users who don't have QB access. Auto creating a case in QB based on email received in Outlook without any configuration or vendor. It's done through an integration build using .Net and APIs,Adding Artificial Intelligence with QuickBase to bring valuable insights forecasting/predictions Adding Chatbot capability within QuickBase as out of the box feature Making QB solutions available to huge count of users or at enterprise level, if licensing cost reduces.,10,Improved Customer Satisfaction by reducing time to market that too with a product with a great user experience. Huge Cost Saving by FTEs reduction and Improved productivity Added efficiencies The client asking for QuickBase but having a huge user base, due to licensing cost we have to offer another alternative solution.,MS SharePoint, Microsoft Azure,Yes,Price Product Features Product Usability Vendor Reputation Positive Sales Experience with the Vendor,I found GDPR is an important criterion in terms of security and by this time we have all required details from QB in terms of data privacy. And during evaluation, I would like to put this as an important parameter with thorough analysis.,Yes,8,Yes,We were having an ESO upgrade and we came to know about the impact of it on Quickbase quite late and raised a request to QB for support. Just next day to that request and that was weekend, we have some of QB support executive in a meeting with the team doing ESO upgrade. We verified QB and found an issue which was resolved in few hours with the help of support agent and helped to handle this issue in a short turn around requiring on-demand assistance during the weekend on a short notice.,Reporting and Analytics Home Pages/Dashboard Setup Roles/Permission based workflow setup Notifications, Reminders, and Subscription,Integrations without using paid 3rd party vendors e.g. Building integrations with.Net to communicate between QB and outside the system The relationship, Proxy Field. Impact of removing existing relation is an area where a new user has major confusion. Custom API code should have Intellisense where ever applicable Web Hooks Count limit is a problem/challenge,Yes,8,8,9,10Game Changing Platform for Tour BusinessWe use Quick Base as our CRM, customer support and invoicing. Basically, the entire business process is conducted within Quick Base. That has been the aim over the past 3 years. It has taken our business completely off spreadsheets in the sense of manual creation. We also have completely automated our invoicing process within the last 6 months.,Cloud based access gives the ability for all team members to view real time from anywhere. Ease of use and replicate-able so that training is easy with full accountability. Relationship based flow so entry is kept to a minimum. No more double or triple entry. Import feature that allows you to enter hundreds of line items at once rather than one at a time. which is based on internet speeds.,Only the platform for typical business usage. Many needed items are not native, meaning you have to use outside resources in order to complete certain automation or added features. Ability to make copy of forms from 1 app to the next. I may create a app that functions differently from the other but can use a particular form that works well in another.,10,I am the app builder for our company. App building has become a simple task after years of being in the system and understanding how things trigger. Over the last 6 months, I had created an application that ran an entire roll-off business for hurricane relief efforts. It handled order entry to invoicing and took about a day to create, with updates and modifications made over a few weeks to meet production standards. Very easy to make changes and at the drop of a dime.,,Someone that has never been acquainted with a relationship driven software would have great difficulty grasping the concept. It was very stressful learning the system when first introduced. There wasn't a lot of training available 4 years ago. Now there is an ample amount. I think today it would be much easier to create an application fresh into the game and would actually be a great training method for new employees to get acquainted with the system.,Building and deploying business applications faster Improving our ability to drive insights from our data Improving collaboration across one or more teams Solving a specific business challenge Building and deploying an application (or multiple applications) that meets our exact needs,We have recently changed our name due to an acquisition. Quick Base provides the ease of changing the names with a single entry. You choose the name throughout the app to change and enter the new name. Whether it's 5 or 500 it changes the particular name throughout. This saves countless minutes or hours.,3,1,Data management invoice automation customer ticket tracking connecting all apps for single point of entry,connecting 5 apps to a single engine that runs them all connecting to QuickBooks thru workato to automate the entire invoice process built in calculators,Automate our audting logistic support for construction clients lead generation marketing,10,Had a return in 2017 of over $100k cut out multiple users in our invoicing process, 1 executive included,No,Product Features Product Usability Prior Experience with the Product Existing Relationship with the Vendor,I wouldst change anything. We had a couple other products on the shelf that I tested. One had a longer history but didn't have the opportunity for change, which is what our industry constantly requires.,10,No,building apps automating functions using formulas to auto populate fields user management user interface set-up billing and account management,integrating with different platforms using certain fields that require api creating api forms for url buttons,Yes, but I don't use it,10Quick Base from my perspective.We use Quick Base (QB) primarily to compile regional information in which we use this data to help manage business opportunities. We also use QB with RPA to help us systematically show the status of each sales rep, when they're available or unavailable, this helps us best serve our customers in a timely manner.,Low Code developments API Calls Webhooks,ODBC Connection Query against data connections (i.e. once a table is built and connections are joined to other tables, the ability to query against those results manually, like SQL),10,We have achieved this on a micro level being able to help small pocketed groups by providing a portal to have access to specific needs and information. Because we are local and not IT driven we've been able to conceptualize new needs, design an App, maintain the App, and provide service to an App much faster than if QB was maintained by IT. We are agile where IT has limited resources to be as agile.,,For a simple design, QB is amazing, it can literally be as easy as drag and drop. When keeping Apps on a basic level a person with no or little technical experience can develop a working functional App, Quickly, that suits their needs.,Building and deploying business applications faster Improving collaboration across one or more teams Solving a specific business challenge Building and deploying an application (or multiple applications) that meets our exact needs,We constantly always update "Tweak" our apps. In our environment, the landscape changes all the time, with new alignments, customer server agreements, trends, products, educational developments and training. in our Climate we are always shifting, and QB allows us the agility and functionality to shift rapidly with in culture and environment. Because QB is very dynamic, it allows us to make these updates quickly and on the fly, and almost always these updates go as expected.,870,3,Regional Data informaton Inbound Requests Rep Availability,Works with with RPA Via ODBC connection makes life easier adding data in.

It is currently used for manufacturing, purchasing, fulfillment, pre-sales and post-sales activities, customer support, asset tracking, document control, HR, etc. QuickBase allows for the entire organization to be able see the same data seamlessly whether they are home based or in the field.,Most setup can be done with no code or low code solutions. Can setu p a new application within a few hours. Offers a solution for about all use cases. I have yet to have a problem I could not solve using QuickBase.,Current mobile applications are lacking, but I know are currently being worked on. Occasionally when I need real coding to get things done I can't, but there are many support companies that can help.,10,Everyone of my company's applications have been custom built, some in just an hour. We have one application that was requested, designed, built, and deployed in 2 hours. Most applications once deployed take very little maintenance other than managing users as they start, leave, or gain responsibility.,,The level of difficultly is very low honestly. I am not a coder or in IT, I took one college couse in C++ which has not helped me at all, but am the main admin for QuickBase and am fully able to do most setup of applications. Most applications I have built in 2 hours or less and do no maintenance other than user support for access levels. On the off chance I need something more advanced QuickBase hasa whole bunch of support providers. We use The Data Collaborative, who are great.,Building and deploying business applications faster Improving our ability to drive insights from our data Improving collaboration across one or more teams Solving a specific business challenge Building and deploying an application (or multiple applications) that meets our exact needs,QuickBase adds new features every month and some are more useful than others. Though they recently added Webhooks which I implemented between two applications which allows logging of a location which I couldn't do before. They also have added new charting options recently which I was able to start using that day and have been instrumental to our sales group.,60,2,Customers and Sales Opportunities Manufacturing Quality Purchasing Sales Order Entry,We developed a Service Warehouse for the field service techs that automatically managers their part inventories and reorders parts as they use them. Mainly done through permission and Quick Base Actions/Webhooks,Human Resources could be automated more Training Records Audits,10,Has dramatically increased accurate communication throughout the company since you dont need to log into the main server and review shared documents or search email for knowledge. Streamline our work so we have more time to think about improvements.

It was originally used from our Alumni Association database but I have implemented QuickBase into many of my functions at work.,I'm sure there are ways in the future that QuickBase can help that I haven't even though of yet. I have only been working with QuickBase for a couple of months and have thought of at least 8 different areas that QuickBase can help.,10,It has been a great aid to accomplish goal and made it a lot more streamlined and automated. I don't see any negatives in it so far.,Microsoft Access,Yes,Product Features Product Usability,I just wish that I would have heard about Quick Base sooner,Don't know,I was not part of the implementation process.,10,10,I can not recall,Creating the tables. creating triggers,Sometimes the formulas,Yes,10Quickbase for Manufacturing Structural SteelQuickbase is being used by the entire organization. We use it to track all current inventory, to create new orders, follow the orders, check them in, get them to the jobs that require the material, view the process of the job and all related tasks, make sure it's ready to be shipped out, and track it to it's destination.,Everyone has the access to the same information at the same time All edits made can be instantly viewed and reflected on It has great control over users access and permissions Great ability to use different applications for different needs in the company Customizable with layout as desired and adding personal code and scripts,Some times, it is difficult to search through some tables and applications Grid edit needs to be used in a slightly more integrated way with APIs Speed is a great concern for us, and when Quickbase is slow or the database is dragging along, we're hurting.,8,We have been able to make great use of the applications. It has aided us to view the jobs we do and maintain great track of them.,Airtable,There is hardly any difficulty at all, thanks to some great templates that anybody can use. They also come with examples sometimes, so that you can see how the application is intended to work. There might be some need for IT aid when the solution requires programming languages, but Quickbase can be run quite smoothly with little to no programming knowledge.,Improving our ability to drive insights from our data Improving collaboration across one or more teams Solving a specific business challenge Building and deploying an application (or multiple applications) that meets our exact needs,We have an application that is designed to track changes in Quickbase, Audit Trail. When we first implemented it, we could not believe how quick we got it going and how great it's functioned until now. It's been doing great and gives us great insight into the jobs that we perform and that happen.,95,3,We use it to track our raw material from when we order to when it leaves the company It hosts all of my backupos and the custom code that we have made for a few of these applications We're able to prioritize the jbs that we have on hand by the status that we can make in a field for each record,API calls to use scanning in the workshop The ability to create a full page to work on information that we needed that was incorporated to the records,By incorporating the information from external apps and using it more and more in Quickbase,9,It has been able to maintain all of our information in a centralized format and easily accessible webpage If Quickbase is ever down or has an issue, we cannot work. If Quickbase goes offline, we cannot work completely.,Chrome Remote Desktop, Cisco ASA, Apple iCloud,No,Product Features Product Usability Third-party Reviews,Try it out first. We jumped in and trusted the program, and this worked out greatly for us,Implemented in-house,No,Change management was minimal,Making sure that we had access to the internet throughout our entire company Making sure that everyone could log in correctly,10,Self-taught,It was pretty simple to learn the overall, but to get more and more of the specifics, I had to get more in depth with it and create testing pages and tables. In the end, I learned a lot, but it would have definitely helped to have gotten more help from someone with a ton of knowledge on the system.,9,Make sure to take advantage of the URL pages that you can create to aid the page. You can make these pages and API calls to get the information that you need without having to necessarily use the exact form type of the Jobs page.,Yes - we have customized the interface extensively,Yes - we have added extensive custom code,We like to change the colors of the pages to match our company colors. We've also used a ton of API calls to do tracking of changes to jobs. Lastly, we like to have many of our documents shown in a custom coded page with information being pulled from Quickbase itself.,Yes,10,No,We lost a ton of information one time, so we had to reach out to support to get the most recent back up of the app. Support was able to respond quickly, and in less than 2 hours, we had a copy up and running and we were ready to go.,Customizing the fields that are needed for the tables that we require Creating specific reports that we need and being able to filter it down to exactly what we need,The formulas are sometimes difficult Not being able to catch the form rules of grid edits,Yes,9,9,9,7,Our Timeclock information, for tracking our time Quickbooks, for passing on some information,None at the moment,File import/export API (e.g. SOAP or REST),9,Make sure that you continue to hold our hand through the integration, as I can see that having issues with this could lead to very unhappy customers.,9,9,Fair, monthly payments that were offered at a discount that suited the team.,Patience and clearly speaking out what it is that you need.,No,Faster load time Better reports More concise Report building,Grid Edit triggering Form Rules. This is really killing us.,No,NoMy quickbase experienceAt People's Bank nc, we purchased quickbase as a way to mange our many ongoing projects, but we quickly figured out that the software is very flexible and found other uses for it. The apps are built by myself and can be used by anybody.,It's very easy for the end user to learn how to use the software. It's very easy to learn how to create custom apps and quickbase offers plenty of training. It's very flexible, almost any app can be built for any purpose.,I wish it had better HTML integration for more customization options. Quickbase can do just about anything, but you might have to upgrade your plan or buy extra plugins for it. More advanced app building can be difficult to diagnose problems.,9,Quickbase custom apps are quick and easy to get developed and pushed out. Some apps can be made and ready to use with in a few hours or a few weeks for the more complicated apps.,,Quickbase is easy enough for a non technical person to develop simple apps and reports, but I've found it easier to develop the core functionality of the app myself and allow the non technical user to have the ability to make changes and fine tune the small stuff like field names and reports.,Improving collaboration across one or more teams,Quickbase apps are easy to update, I do have one app that Ive built that requires constant update requests from the department that i built the app for. If it's a visual or naming update, the department have the ability and know how to do it, but for functionality updates I usually update the app for the department.,30,3,Project management Audit tracking Task tracking,By using this software as a way to help our audit department to keep track of tasks that need to be done. surveys,By further expanding tracking and task management to our other departments.,10,Its made project management a lot easier. were more organized and keep up better with deadlines now that we have a place to organize them.,Microsoft Access, Microsoft SQL Server,No,Product Features Product Usability,nothing,Don't know,No,Change management was minimal,setting up active directory was the most difficult, but thats becasue our AD system hasnt been kept up with.,10,No,10,No,With helping set up and provide documentation for active directory access.,creating tables Creating relationships for those tables Creating reports,making complex relationships can get a little confusing,Yes, but I don't use it,10So much data...so little timeWe use QuickBase for project management and project accounting.,Revenue recognition Project profitability Project percent completion Project management,Currency translation Duplication of data entry,8,We have, but are still improving the applications.,Microsoft Access,Our apps were built by outside consultants but are maintained internally by finance and operations staff not IT,Improving our ability to drive insights from our data Solving a specific business challenge,Not done yet,100,1,Time keeping Task completion Project management,Nothing innovative yet,Dashboards for teams Resource allocation Profitability reporting,10,More accurate data Easier to consolidate,Concur Expense, QuickBooks Enterprise Solutions,Not Sure,Price Product Features,Was not here when it was implemented,Don't know,Don't know,10,10,No,While trying to build a report, I accidentally broke the link to detail items. Support restored a prior copy, compared it to the broken instance, and repaired it before anyone else had noticed.,Building forms Building reports Linking related data Building dashboards,None,10Make quick apps for your small local team, but large international teams beware of the limitations!We use QuickBase to accept requests from one team to another, store information about those requests, automatically generate due dates/times based on task type, and track status and who is assigned to each request. We also return results within QuickBase and send emailed notifications when the results are ready. We log time estimates, hours spent, and have formulas set up to track SLA Compliance for each task type. We get a lot of data about all parts of our operations from the QuickBase reports. We have many teams using QuickBase in this manner, each with a workflow customized to their specific needs.We also have some other QuickBases set up to manage our internal training program and a similar one for client training, an internally facing client feedback tracker, management statistics for our support team, a lightweight bug tracker, and some smaller solutions here and there.,QuickBase allows a business user to customize or build an app with minimal database skills. If you can use MS Access, you can build a full-featured cloud-based app with QuickBase. QuickBase is easy to customize one the app is live. There is very low risk to deploying updates to the live environment because most updates are fast to make and just as fast to roll back if needed. QuickBase customer support is excellent. They respond quickly and tend to have a very good understanding of the product. Support team is always willing to get on the phone with me and help solve my QuickBase puzzle.,QuickBase is bad at supporting international business. There is no native support for user-based time zones or date formats. The database uses a character encoding that won't support languages besides English. The support team and staff are obviously not used to thinking about international business and seem stumped when asked how to solve for these problems. QuickBase's user interface is humdrum. It's possible to design a form for your users that is usable, but it does not look modern and elegant. QuickBase's mobile support is poor. It is possible to view your quickbase on a phone or tablet, but it's difficult to navigate most apps and takes many clicks/taps. QuickBase's per-user pricing makes it a bad choice for client-facing applications. You would have to pay for your internal users and for each client user. QuickBase is very receptive to feedback on their limitations, however their sales and support staff will constantly push you to solve for limitations on UI, mobile support, or client-facing applications by using a third party vendor who builds their app on top of QuickBase and will charge additional money to do so. The overall value proposition goes down when you take this into consideration. QuickBase charges per user, but does not provide any easy tools for user audits or user management. Any app builder in my company can invite any number of new users and they will be added to my bill without any option for me to block them. It is not easy to do inline editing of a table report in QuickBase. Their grid edit solution is very buggy and users often lose their changes to the data when encountering a bug in grid edit.,7,We are definitely able to rapidly deploy new business apps. It typically takes about a month to get a new app deployed, but half to 2/3 of that time is the "people" part---understanding requirements before the app is built, and working with the users to beta test and tweak the interface after it's built. The actual build time on a new app is very short for someone experienced with QuickBase. As an experienced app administrator, I can roll out a new app with some pretty nice features in half a day. A newer admin can, with some coaching, complete an app in a week or two.,Sales Force,New users can certainly create apps, but may take a little longer to get up to speed and get their app deployed. I especially notice a lot of new users get confused with the concept of table-to-table relationships. Typically someone who has never worked with a database will need to learn the very basics of database structure and design before they can really leverage the power of QuickBase. Thankfully QuickBase offers several recorded webinars that explain the basics from a QuickBase perspective quite well.I notice our newer QuickBase admins tend to make some structural mistakes in building their apps---doing things the hard way sometimes. These mistakes can be difficult to undo once the app is being used by many users. However, QuickBase offers community forums, recorded webinars, a fantastic and complete help center, and a support team. If a new developer takes advantage of all that QB has to offer, they can avoid such mistakes and come up with a really nice basic app to which they can add features over time.,Building and deploying business applications faster Improving our ability to drive insights from our data Improving collaboration across one or more teams,Simple updates like adding a field, adding a look-up field, changing a dropdown, customizing an email notification--these are completed in a minute or two and immediately available to users. This is an advantage of QuickBase over any other product I have tried.There are more complex scenarios wherein one discovers that the base structure of an app is not ideal. Recently we had to entirely rebuild a major app from which we gain data about all our clients. It was time-consuming because we decided to do it right, but the results have been well worth it. We started by creating a data dictionary for the old app. There is no easy way to export a data dictionary from QuickBase so this was more time-consuming than it should be. I had to copy/paste from an admin screen then remove the garbage data. We then re-mapped the tables of the app into a more logical structure and decided which fields to keep/change/remove. We logged all that in our spreadsheet before beginning any app building. Finally, with the new data mapping in mind, we exported all the old data from the old app and adjusted the spreadsheets so that it would be in the correct structure (and field names) for the new app. We then built the new app and imported the data. The total process took maybe 2-3 months, but the end result is an app that is very easy to use and update moving forward. I don't expect to ever need to make major structural changes to this app because it was built with flexibility in mind.So there you have it---the most complex rebuild of a complex app took 3 months at max. Keep in mind this was a side project for us, as we have zero people dedicated full time to supporting QuickBase. The operations owners take care of it in their spare time.,800,,Employee time tracking, relating hours data to revenue to assess profitability Project management and visibility for various longer term projects Request management for various shorter term requests, including tracking SLA adherence,We need better national and international support. Users need to be able to set their own personal time zone and then view all times or date/times within an app in their home time zone. They also need to be able to enter the times in their home time zone and it automatically gets translated back to the app's time zone upon save. While there is a workaround for viewing timestamps, there is no workaround for creating or updating timestamps outside of working with a QSP. We need users to be able to create a QB record by emailing a special email address. Gmail sync doesn't quite do the trick. If we had this feature, we could support ticketing workflows. We'd like to get more granular in our ability to track metrics related to requests. For example, if we need to track the time spent on hold for a request that goes in and out of hold status several times, it is difficult to do right now. We are close to a workaround with the new Automations feature, but Automations don't allow date fields to be used as report criterion for triggers.,9Quick Base is Key in Company Communication and Data ReviewQuick Base is currently being used by multiple departments in the company for different use cases, from tracking marketing activities and budget, sales opportunities, and our main CMS. Quick Base allows us to customize the system to our culture and processes and is fast and easy to update when new processes are in place.,Easy to build fields and forms for a customized user experience, based on their role. Ability to create conditions to streamline and automate complex processes. There are so many options to create reports, which is useful to only share the information a group needs to view, instead of having them sift through a huge report.,Additional functionality in the Dynamic Form Rules to include the ability to create an action or condition based on if a date falls into a quarter or year, instead of an actual date. Ability to colorize/highlight Sections and/or individual fields to correspond with internal processes or to call out a field even more that is required. We hide tables to simplify the navigation, however, we still need access to reports based on that table. Would be helpful if there was a master report section that accessed all reports available to that role, even if a table is hidden.,9,With Quick Base, we are able to change fields and form layouts on the fly. This is beneficial in streamlining workflows to how our team is using Quick Base today. With this flexibility, we can change it again months or years from now and not lose any data due to those updates. We also have an archival history for customers we've had for years or marketing events, which helps us create better sales processes or decision on our marketing spend.,,It is easy to set up an app for non-technical developers, as long as you have a strong App Diagram of how your app will be structured. I feel where app builders run into issues is when this vision is not clear, so they have to go back and rework table-to-table relationships or need to recreate or change a field type to get the data output required.,Building and deploying business applications faster Improving our ability to drive insights from our data Improving collaboration across one or more teams Solving a specific business challenge Building and deploying an application (or multiple applications) that meets our exact needs,We are continually updating one of apps to streamline and simplify the process for our teams to input information, and also update what information is now needed. Working in an ever evolving industry, Quick Base makes it easy to make those changes, and not lose historical data. On the Marketing side, we've changed how we report expenses so it will line up with our finance departments tracking.

At Empower, I had a few moments between sessions and asked if they had any openings. They didn't, but one of the reps overheard my question and offered to help me until his next appointment arrived. We quickly when through my questions and he set up a test app with the functionality I was inquiring about, so I could reference when I was back in the office. It was very helpful and truly appreciated!,Adding fields Creating table-to-table relationship or cross-relationships Creating reports,Dynamic Form Rules: Unable to create the conditions and actions needed, or the logic is different than what you thought to make it happen Ability to manage reports by user (i.e. review reports - public and private - created by a former employee to verify it is still needed) Creating complex formulas to get desired data,Yes,8QuickBase is doing great but has huge improvement opportunityIt is used across departments.

More user-friendly form rule editing interface, more control on form rule, like copy rules to another form. More flexible data type/schema, which allows using any kind of fields in filter or joins. Auto increasing index field which duplicates records but editable. Editable duplicate built-in fields to allow better recovery function. Customized pages which allow a non-login visit[or] to collect data.,9,I think our organization has achieved this benefit. It is faster to build and kind of easy to maintain. Upon request of our users, most applications are more complex than default features and functions. Therefore supporting and maintaining them is no longer that easy.

This is especially true with the introduction of WebHooks and the partnership with Workato.,275,7,Collecting construction scheduling data into one central location Reporting spending forecasts Collaboration between departments,We have a landscaping group that is using a new solution through Quick Base that enables them to track work tickets by location and issue vendors specific scopes of work. Those vendors can then submit proof they've completed the job and submit invoices. Previously this group was using a database built for them back in 1999! It's a gigantic improvement. We are giving different departments small applications as a starting point so they can gain confidence in building small solutions that have been major pain points for them. Afterwards we work with them to coordinate a more strategic plan to address their process and system needs leveraging their newly found enthusiasm and business side expertise. We're getting people to stop trying to recreate old, bad processes to maintain familiarity and to start trying to trim or reinvent actual need from the system.,We are going to start using Quick Base to project our labor requirements to allow us to start resource load our projects. We're going to start helping each department forecast work that comes from neighboring departments by getting alerts and reporting from the schedules each group creates. This will help us proactively work together to accomplish projects rather than be blindsided when we have new job requests with no planning time.,10,Reduced research, reporting and organizing time.

Quick Base is expanding at our company, as more and more users are in the apps, they have more ideas they would like to have built, this could be additional functionality in existing apps or new apps to replace and enhance manual processes or spreadsheets. Growth is also being seen with existing apps by providing additional visibility into apps for more groups. This growth in Quick Base provides additional opportunities for our employees to grow and work on different tasks. We are currently working on implementing a more comprehensive Citizen Development program to get our business units more involved,Availability to integrate with other systems Roles, permissions and security are easily manageable Dashboard are customizable,Better reporting More enhanced UI,10,Yes, we have implemented several business applications to track different types of project management, tracking assets, and tracking safety incidents. Some of our apps in production have been implemented to production if a day or two! Rapid Application Development at its best!,Microsoft Access,I do not have a programming background or education and I can develop in Quick Base. We have a team of people that can help with integrations, table structure and code pages when needed. Some apps do not require any of this to be complete and implemented. If I can develop an app many others can too! That is one of the many reasons we are working to expand our Citizen Developers, they know their data and they are the best people to determine more things they need done with their data! Our apps are very diverse and some take a short time to develop a couple of weeks and others take longer to implement due to integrations etc.,Building and deploying business applications faster Improving our ability to drive insights from our data Improving collaboration across one or more teams Solving a specific business challenge Building and deploying an application (or multiple applications) that meets our exact needs,We are regularly revisiting our apps with the Product Owner to provide additional functionality. Updating the apps are easy, as easy as the original development time. The visuals provided in Quick Base like the Relationship diagram and the table relationships provide a great place for a developer to start to understand an app. This is helpful for a developer to update an existing app.,200,3,project management tracking - inventory assets, incidents sharing and transparency of information,the possibilities are endless, each time we talk with new potential users they have an abundance of ideas where they would like to use QuickBase the integrations and code pages has provided solutions that we might have otherwise not been as successful the vendor add-ons and expertise availability is fantastic,improved project management Quality Control Asset Scheduling,10,Elimination of multiple points for data entry is the first impact that we have realized. This time saver is measurable and quite impactfull, it provides opportunity for people to spend their time on more valuable tasks. Business process is something we are continually striving to streamline and improve and quite possibly eliminate is valuable to the business. Some things are not as easily measurable because of the additional functionality which we did not have prior to QuickBase.,Pivotal Tracker,Yes,Price Product Features Product Usability,I was not directly involved in the selection process, sorry cannot answer this one.,Implemented in-house,No,Change management was a big part of the implementation and was well-handled,a short development window a go live date that had no flixibility,10,Yes,10,No,Earlier this year we had an issue with our single sign on and our users could not access our QuickBase account.

Our primary app is a large complex highly customized Project Management app. We set up and track every proposal and contract from beginning to end. We handle a variety of different projects in several industries, included but not limited to design, strategy, production, installation and maintenance.,It is very easy to customize with Quick Base. When a project or type of project needs to accommodate a new process change, it is usually something that can be addressed in minutes or under an hour. Created new customized reports is a breeze. Need to add or remove a couple of columns -or change the sort or subtotaling - generally can be completed in minutes. Email Notifications. We often have important deadlines for deliverables, invoicing and report submissions. Rather than relying on staff’s memory or external calendars, they are many options on how one can setup email notifications and auto report distributions.,Table icons - For new users, the table metaphor and the icons can be confusing and/or uninviting. The app developer should be able to hide the table menu display and icons. Forms design and layout. In 2018, I expect to have a more WYSIWYG input form design. It’s currently awkward and time consuming. The overall user interface is very dated- looks “1999-ish”. I know that they are working on improvements, but it is still way behind new users expeditions for a GUI.,10,Absolutely. Quick Base has allowed us to build, deploy, expand, refine, continuously improved many apps- not only for our internal use but also directly for clients. Building apps for our clients has also help us understand their business issues more deeply and provide assistance beyond our traditional core services .,Smartsheet, Basecamp and Wrike,Even though marketing touts ease of use for non-techs, I have not seen that in our company. Even those users who are more comfortable with spreadsheets and lists of data, it would be a significant stretch to expect them to build even a simple app with a few tables. Without a grasp of relational databases - how tables relate to each other and the importance of data normalization, the probability of creating and maintaining a usable app in an effective and efficient manner would be very low.,Building and deploying business applications faster Improving our ability to drive insights from our data Improving collaboration across one or more teams Solving a specific business challenge Building and deploying an application (or multiple applications) that meets our exact needs,I make additions, changes and/or tweaks almost every week. I developed an app for a large wayfinding signage project. The project involved designing, building and installing 5,000 signs in a new hospital. During the course of the project, the client had fallen behind in their approval process for the textual content for each sign - which was being done in Excel. I modified the app to allow for the client to accept the recommended text or enter new text, while adding auditing capabilities, so that we had documentable proof of who accepted or modified the text - and when. It worked flawlessly, and we then also knew which signs were not ready to be built.,,1Why QuickBase works for us.Quickbase is being used in various ways across the company. It is most often used to streamline MS Access, spreadsheet or manual processes.,Quickbase provides an easy to use interface to build custom applications without a lot of programming experience. Quickbase has strong native integration capabilities that can allow a developer to use an excel source and replace it with a QB app in just a few minutes. Quickbase has an excellent comprehensive API layer that allows for quick and easy integrations with other systems.,Quickbase could really use some improvement in allowing users to easily and simply customize the UI to better meet their needs. I would love to see alternate keys be available for building foreign key relationships on tables as well as multi-column key values.,9,Yes we have seen this happen, typically to build a custom application from scratch we would see a 2 to 3 man full time IT developer team work for at least a few months in order to deliver the tool to production. With Quickbase we often see an app go live in just a few weeks with 1 or 2 non-IT citizen developers working on it.,Salesforce App Cloud,We use our citizen developers for almost all of our applications and they are able to handle 80% - 90% of all requirements without involving IT. None of our citizen developers have a formal IT background and are usually able to deliver an app or new feature set to production in 4 to 6 weeks.,Building and deploying business applications faster Improving our ability to drive insights from our data,Recently we found an issue with one of our apps that help us maintain our inventory counts. There was a problem with the FIFO logic we had implemented through a custom code page. We were able to get the page updated, delete the bad counts in grid edit view and recreate them correctly. The whole process took less than a couple of hours.,300,5,Project Management Operations Management Ability to integrate seamlessly with other systems.,Self Service Development for business units leading to very decreased development time Lots of small one-off spreadsheet replacement applications that cumulatively save a ton of time,Equipment Tracking,9,It has enabled us to scale by making manual project management tasks automated and programmatic,DocuSign,No,Price Product Features Product Usability,I don't think I would have changed a thing,Implemented in-house,No,Change management was a minor issue with the implementation,Inexperience Data Integration,9,Self-taught,Yes I think some light formal training would have been beneficial,8,We need to be able to define alternate foreign keys,No - we have not done any customization to the interface,Yes - we have added extensive custom code,Table size limits need to be eliminated,8,We had an internal security cert expire, it was our fault but support got it implemented for us within minutes and we were back up and running.,Quick Table Creation Form Creation Report Creation,Limited table relationship options Table size constraints,Yes,9,7,10,9,SQL Server Salesforce Tableau,None,File import/export Single Signon API (e.g. SOAP or REST) ETL tools,9,Increase the API call limits,10,10,Right now we are billed per user with a significant discount off list over a one year term.,Be honest, communicate your growth potential and be willing to partner with them and provide marketable feedback.,Yes,Changes to menus Default collapsed menus,additional user interface tools,Yes,NoPlain and FancyQuickBase is being used to track our new business process.,You don't need to be a programmer or IT person to work with QuickBase. Online documentation is readily available. The Empower annual gatherings are great to network, see what others are doing with QuickBase and especially see what is over the horizon.,A simple request I've made for several years and still nothing has been done. When a report is run have the ability to move from page to page at the top of the report. Currently it only appears at the bottom of a report which requires a user to scroll to the bottom of a report to move forward or backward or select a specific page of the report.,10,Yes, 1 application has saved an estimated 3-4 staff.,,As a citizen developer who also has trained several other citizen developers, QuickBase is so logical that no IT help is required.,Building and deploying business applications faster Improving our ability to drive insights from our data Improving collaboration across one or more teams Solving a specific business challenge Building and deploying an application (or multiple applications) that meets our exact needs,All our applications are constantly being updated. As users see what QuickBase can and does do for them they ask "can QuickBase do this or that?" and the answer I find is YES.,750,2,Tracking daily progress of pension services providing accurate daily status reports Importing information from other in house systems on a daily basis Centralized real time information,Each Quick Base application has saved business teams 2-3 people Replacement of slow, inefficient systems such as Accent.,We are always looking to use Quick Base to solve existing tracking information and data,10,Teams and Management now have real time information,BizNet Excel Suite,Yes,Price Product Features Product Usability Product Reputation Analyst Reports Third-party Reviews,No Quick Base continues to exceed expectations,Implemented in-house,No,User acceptance,10,Self-taught,Training is really up to the individual and their own comfort level.,10,Never say Quick Base can't do something. I have yet to find Quick Base could not solve the needs I have,No - we have not done any customization to the interface,No - we have not done any custom code,None at this time,No,10,No,Yes,Creating forms for User entry of data Importing data from other systems to update on a daily basis Reports, Reports, Reports need I say more Formulas Automated emails and subscriptions,When running a large report I find it cumbersome to move from page to page as the paging is only at the bottom of the screen. Please move the choice also to the top of the report.,Yes,10,10,10,10,No not at this time although we do import data from other legacy systems,None at this time,File import/export,10,Never give up,10,10,Billable licensing amount,No,No,Pending,Super User access,No,NoQuick Results with QuickBaseQuickBase is currently being used in two departments, for CRM purposes as well as tracking of projects and resources and their associated time and expenses.,One of the greatest things about QuickBase is that it's simple to start building and implementing, allowing individuals from all backgrounds to jump right in and create a working database.,One thing that I've always wished QuickBase would do is add workflow functionality (aka triggers) where certain actions would initiate specified actions elsewhere in the database. I know they've recently added WebHooks, but it's not a feature that the average user could work with due to it's required level of knowledge. It should be set up more in line with how the notifications work. Allow for adding custom Javascript to specified pages. We currently need to jump through hoops to add our own custom Javascript (many times to accomplish what could be done with triggers if they were available). Add more customization to Calendars. Ability to display by day/week, drag & drop, custom colors.,10,What's great about QuickBase is that we were able to get the app up and running very quickly, even though it was very basic at that point it was able to meet our immediate needs. Then as we were using it on a daily basis the team naturally started to think of ways to improve it, which was easily done after the fact to streamline the existing applications.,Basecamp and Salesforce.com,Anyone, no really, ANYONE, can create a working database on QuickBase. I started with no prior knowledge of databases as a whole and was able to quickly learn how best to create and manage QuickBase applications. However if you're wanting to really customize your apps you'll want to learn or find someone that knows JavaScript. Again, I didn't have this knowledge when first using QuickBase, though as we were wanting to customize our apps more I found myself constantly reading the community forums to learn different tips and tricks.,Building and deploying business applications faster Improving our ability to drive insights from our data Improving collaboration across one or more teams Solving a specific business challenge Building and deploying an application (or multiple applications) that meets our exact needs,I'm constantly updating our live production application. Anytime there's new data that the team needs to keep track of it's as simple as adding a new field and selecting which forms/reports that it should be on. If needed we'll create an additional table to track the new data and quickly create a connection to it's related tables and that's it. The same goes for charts and graphs as well, we just select the type of chart we want, which data it needs to show and which records to include and within a couple minutes we're done.,200,2,Oracle eBusiness Suite, GoldMine, QuoteWerks,10,No,Creating new Applications/Tables & Relationships Reporting,Creating workflow automation has been a bit cumbersome in the past, however they're releasing new functionality to make that easier Summarizing text from a child record into the parent (numeric summaries are a piece-of-cake),Yes, but I don't use it,9QuickBase quickly gives you a base to build your foundation for your project or department.We use QuickBase as a repository for documents and as a way to create forms, reporting, and metrics for our Learning/Training Department that serves our greater IT org, Customer Technologies. We have yet to delve as deep as we can into its potential uses, but at present it has addressed our problem with where to store documents and files, as well as, a way to manage and organize our current restructuring of our department's policies, procedures, and development.,It is very easy to create apps specific to our needs. It is a great way to manage and store documentation on many levels. It gives us a one stop location where we can organize our entire restructuring effort.,I would like to be able to upload and store larger video files and Captivate files without having to zip them. In our Learning/Training Department we have a need to share files so that we can have multiple sets of eyes on things as we design and develop learning elements. An easier or more intuitive method to share larger files would be great. It may be because I am still relatively new to QuickBase, but it is not the easiest to navigate when trying to add new users, edit functionality of an app, etc.,10,We have achieved this benefit to a certain extent, but have not yet realized the full potential of the product. I anticipate that as our restructure effort moves forward we will have ample opportunity to test this and realize even more benefit from using the product. From what we have seen of it up to this point it has been indispensable for us as a means to organize our restructuring.,,It can be difficult for non-technical developers to navigate through the creation of applications, however, with that being said, QuickBase help is very efficient and accessible when trying to build something from scratch. Their customer support is top notch and responds quickly to every inquiry for assistance that I have made so far.,Building and deploying business applications faster Improving our ability to drive insights from our data Improving collaboration across one or more teams Building and deploying an application (or multiple applications) that meets our exact needs,I have only updated a QuickBase-developed application twice so far, but both times it was very easy and painless. The product is designed very well and is relatively smooth and effortless to maintain and update. I have no complaints and can only say that the more I use it the more I see its benefit to us both now and in the future.,7,4,A repository to aid in the restructuring of our department and programs. A tool to create measurement and reporting tools during and after the restructuring effort. A way to manage access for documents and files for anonymous users throughout our larger organization.,Sharing Captivate files as we development and design learning elements for our org. Giving us one place to direct students in our new hire classes to find files, documents and other information needed before, during, and after class. Created an app that will help us manage and navigate through the entire restructuring effort.,Sharing documentation across departments. Tracking or measurement of corporate initiatives. Creation of applications that would help manage projects.,10,It has allowed us to achieve our objectives earlier than we expected. It has given us the tools we needed to organize. It has made it possible for us to be more productive in our efforts.,No,Price Product Features Product Usability Third-party Reviews,Because I was not involved in that process it is hard for me to say. Using other products we have evaluated for other uses as a benchmark, I would say that we would test the functionality and compare it to other products so that an informed decision can be made. Again, having not been involved initially, I am assuming that this was the process in choosing QuickBase over another product.,Implemented in-house,No,Change management was a big part of the implementation and was well-handled,We encountered no major issues during our implementation.,10,10,No,I was trying to create an app and could not figure out exactly how to do it. Not only did QuickBase support answer my questions in a timely manner, they also provided me with extra information to make my app even more useful in the day to day management of my project.,Creating applications Managing applications Editing existing applications,Creating intricate applications,Yes, but I don't use it,10
