Building and deploying an application (or multiple applications) that meets our exact needs
About building and deploying applications faster, I have previously mentioned and I still stand by it, that unlike development in languages such as .NET, Java or ROR, QuickBase is must faster. With features such as Sandbox (including optional mandating it), the task of deploying to production is a matter of a few minutes, not several hours even with CI/CD tools like Jenkins.
Report building in QuickBase is great, but it can be done even better. Tools like Tableau are still being used in conjunction with QuickBase because QuickBase reports look clumsy, even if they are informative.
As QuickBase is an online low-code development tool, it does not lend itself to version controlling and retrieving previous versions, etc. Therefore collaborating with other teams is pretty much limited to sharing ideas and code fragments, rather than collaborative application development. The recent audit logs are helpful for tracking what the users are doing but not much granularity in what each admin has done, in terms of which field they created or edited, which form was created, etc. So team collaboration is non-existent in QuickBase for the most part.
In the last 12 years of using QuickBase, I have solved, built and deployed multiple applications including applications that track software development efforts, Reusable Component Catalog for UiPath in QuickBase and so on.
