What's New in QuickBase?

This section describes the changes that appear in QuickBase for the April release.


Issue ID 



There are now more than 50 new QuickBase table icons, and the tags used for all icons have been examined and edited.


There is now a version of the ToDate() formula function that allows you to specify a text string and a date format to create a Date value formatted according to that text string. For example: ToDate("04/07/2014", "DDMMYYYY") takes the text string "04/07/2014" and returns a Date value of July 4, 2014.


A configuration option for an email notification with the Open permission type incorrectly implied that an Email Address type field could contain more than one email address. The list of options shown in the Notify Whom field when configuring a notification has been changed to remove that implication.


What’s Fixed in QuickBase?

We’re continuing to focus on quality and have fixed a number of bugs in this release. All QuickBase releases include bug fixes from previous releases.

Issue ID



If a message containing HTML markup was displayed via a form rule, the markup would appear instead of the formatted text. This issue has been resolved.


If a form rule was used to copy special characters from a lookup field to a text field, the URL-encoded versions of those characters appeared in the text field. This issue has been resolved.


Checkboxes that had been set to read-only by a form rule displayed as the words "yes" or "no" on forms in edit mode. This issue has been resolved.


If API_GetSchema was executed on a table that contained a lookup field of type Address, the address sub-fields were not labeled with mode="lookup" in the data returned from the API call. This issue has been resolved.


When a report filtered on a Date/Time field was emailed, the report sent did not filter on the time, only the date. This issue has been resolved.


Changes made to a Code page using the Search & replace in schema command were reverted after several hours had passed. This issue has been resolved.


The ToFormattedText() formula function returned incorrect results when the "none_dot" format was specified. This issue has been resolved.


In some cases, customers on new service plans were shown irrelevant information on the Summary tab of the Manage Billing Account page. This issue has been resolved.


The online help was corrected to reflect the fact that realm admins who have set IP address filtering are not allowed to sign in to QuickBase from IP addresses that are not in the filter.
