Overall Satisfaction with Quick Base

It's been used to estimate projects, update shop drawings, and markQuick Basective, done, on hold, drop, etc. We use it for the whole company. The problem for me is there is no "for loop" or at least I can't find information about how to use it in Quick Base.
  • It's easy to understand, don't need to be an expert to use it.
  • Have a lot of people supporting the platform.
  • Make the charts more easy to customize.
  • Compare rows and columns in the same table to filter data. For example, know your top 5 clients.
In order to make a product, the project first goes to our Estimate department where they estimate the project in Quick Base based on all the materials, labor, and tools required. Ince the job is approved, they notify engineering and thery start the drawings for production. It's an efficient way to manage information and pass it thought departments.
  • Building and deploying business applications faster
  • Improving our ability to drive insights from our data
We are still improving, right now we want to make use of the flexibility of this platform to represent data in a friendlier and easier way to understand. Just giving the information needed to each department so they don't have any unnecessary data can confuse them.

In the beginning, it was hard to use Quick Base because I'm more familiar with SQL, but went you understand the way that Quick Base works you can do a lot of things easier. My first experience doing an application ended up with an automation running in a loop making i200k records of the same entry. After that, I started to ask in forums, and to my surprise, the people in the community are very nice and supportive.
Personally, I think Quick Base is great at project management, lead times for products, the time needed for the production of finish the product, etc. Where I think it is less appropriate is when you want to use it as a time clock for your employees.
