  • Transparency of updates, maintenance, and current server status.
  • Ease of application creation and their connections, both in and outside of Quickbase.
  • I generate reports with real-time data and can send notifications or subscription reports.
  • The new forms lack usability when viewing a linked record/report inside the form and then trying to edit that record/report.
  • Mobile App design and usability.
  • We are reorganizing steps within a pipeline. Sometimes, rebuilding the pipeline from scratch is more accessible, albeit time-consuming.

  • Being able create apps that are tailored directly to your own use cases is huge. Quickbase gives you the flexibility and the tools to be able to create, link data and report on data in a ton of different ways for every level of user.
  • I love the Quickbase has the ability to create roles for users which allows administrators the ability to show/hide data down to the field level to make sure that only groups who have the need to know, have the ability to see.
  • Reporting is one other area that Quickbase truly shines. There are many different types of reports that a user can create themselves or have created for them that can be filtered, sorted or grouped depending on requirements. Quickbase also has the ability to display those reports on dashboards or homepages and send reports via e-mail as notifications, reminders or subscriptions.
  • Being able to build an app and change it on the fly is great but if there is a suggestion for Quickbase as a whole, it has to go into the queue for development just like all other software companies which sometimes can lead to a delay in efficient functionality, unless you find a workaround.
  • There are a lot of integrations that Quickbase has already created for pipelines but there are so many more that would be useful (top of mind would be links into shipping company programs to do real time data pulls for tracking packages).

  • Their support team has a good record of listening to feature enhancements by their customers.
  • Their Empower gatherings provide great opportunities to hear from fellow customers, as well as hear about new product plans before they are published electronically.
  • They roll out feature enhancements in a timely fashion and allow early adopters to opt-in for these features to get familiar with them, as well as provide constructive criticism or praise accordingly.
  • Their lunch webinars are always very useful at showcasing upcoming releases as well as a way to easily interact with their product teams to get questions answered.
  • The inability to further customize the end users' ability to request app creation as an account administrator. The only way to currently turn this ability off is to remove a very useful portion of the product.
  • Sometimes, but not always, when a bug is noticed and brought to their attention, the communication of when the fix is deployed gets lost.
  • As an account admin/realm administrator, I've noticed that sometimes the navigation experience between the various areas of the product seems to function slightly different depending on which page you are on.

  • You can go on to develop an end to end interactive application without writing a single snippet of code. You can do this in quick turnaround (the baseline setup can be built in a few hours). This includes creating forms, fields, validations, user roles, role-based dashboards, notifications, reminders, SSO, as well as reports. QuickBase is extremely easy to learn and in most cases you don't even need the first lesson to get going on the platform and build something useful out of the system.
  • QuickBase offers more than 800 different applications set up as vanilla apps which can be reused to our advantage.
  • 1 user license can be used against [any] number of applications in the same instance. This has given us the power to develop a complete enterprise fleet for applications for ourselves and our clients using QuickBase.
  • QuickBase lacks language support which has been a limiting factor for many of our applications/clients to use QuickBase. To be a global player, QuickBase needs to focus on this capability at the least.
  • The UI of QuickBase many times limits the usage of the product as a front end tool. It is considered a back-end operations tool rather than something which is beyond any bars. The Mercury UX platform had been discussed for more than 2 years now but it is yet to see daylight. The UI lacks class and many times fails to impress the audiences.

  • Adaptable - You can make changes in a matter of minutes without having to redeploy the code to every machine in the company.
  • Speed of development - I can get very complex business processes developed and deployed in hours, days, weeks, or months rather than in years.
  • Pipelines - still break when you change a field name inside of Quickbase settings, and the search functionality took a hit inside of the new designer.
  • New Forms - does not have parody with the old forms, but became the default. Biggest things for improvement are, searching for other records inside of a record picker, certain records are not selectable inside of a record picker, the child record report link buttons do not function properly, and you can't print the form.
  • "Enterprise-only features" - Specifically what they call the "Advanced Security Features" - They have begun releasing items inside of their top plan tier only. Several of these things are just basic things like knowing the field types and other things that I haven't really cared about. However, in several of these "Advanced Security Features" they display it to the realm administrators and say that you can't use it because you don't pay them enough. The setting in this case leads to clutter and confusion for the general user population at any company that doesn't pay for their top plan tier, and that is unacceptable. It also is a huge slap in the face of myself and other beta testers who requested the ability to hide it months ago, and they released it this month behind that paywall.
  • Mobile App - The mobile app is lacking in capability and needs a lot of work. I was hopeful with the acquisition of FastField, but that hope is fading with these "Enterprise-only features". It seems that they are not going to continue to invest in developing their mobile app, and have parody with their web experience has not occurred since it was released. FastField was going to enable them to take a huge leap in the mobile space, but they seem to just be running it separately.

  • Reports
  • Email Notices
  • Form rules with minimal coding experience needed
  • Categorizing types of work
  • I'd like to see a link on email notices that take you directly into said notice. On an app that only has 1 or 2 email notices firing, there's no issue. However, we have some tools that are so complex that they have about 20 email notices firing at any given time based on the action users take. In this case, if we have to go in to modify a notice, we have to guess or scroll down the long list of notices to see which one we need to customize. It would be great if Quickbase had the URL of said notice somewhere at the footer of that notice so when Administrators click on it, it takes them into the exact notice they need to update.
  • When filling out or reviewing a lengthy form, I'd like to see the Save & close button, as well as a Save & next option at the bottom of the form rather than having to scroll back up to the top of those forms just to click on those choices.

  • Pipelines, creating updating is soooo easy.
  • Codepages so that we can convert any complex operations that are not there in Quickbase, but these code pages are add-ons for sure.
  • Obviously Quickbase formulas which makes the fields flexible.
  • Simplifying webhooks.
  • Optimizing complex formulas so that there should be no errors like "Formula execution took too long".
  • Pipeline divisions, that is, there should be options like we have three environments: dev, UAT, PROD so that pipeline should have an option that which is for which rather than tags.

  • Skills development application.
  • Pipelines could be made a little easier for new developers, but they aren't difficult once you get the hang of it.

  • The user interface for the mobile application could be a lot better
  • Code deployment and automation could see an improvement
  • Building pipes needs to be more streamlined
  • User information addition is quite simple with Quickbase
  • Streamlining product data is very much straighforward. We get a central repository with Quickbase
  • The default templates for creating low code applications is very good

  • Mainly, it provides a lot of customization options.
  • Also, Quickbase provides the option to grant a deep and wide variety of permissions to the end users.
  • The resources provided by the community are good, so we can utilize these resources for building the solutions.
  • At some point, I feel there is a performance degradation, so it may reduce the speed of the app.
  • There is a lack of support when it comes to the advanced development features.
  • There is no option to add CC or BCC people for the notification. This option should be provided.
