What's New in QuickBase?

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

Streamlined password reset flow 

We’ve made the requirement to answer a security question during password reset optional. This behavior is controlled via a new account property: Require Security Question. Realms also have a new password policy setting to require a security question and answer for all accounts in the realm. As of the October 2015 release, this property is turned off for all accounts and realms, and account admins have been notified of the change.

If you would like to continue requiring your users to answer a security question during password reset, turn the property on by selecting the checkbox and saving the change. Note that only billing account administrators may edit QuickBase account properties.

Dynamic goals for gauge charts

You can now choose a field or calculated column to be the goal on a gauge chart. Just choose a Goal type of Data value to display a dropdown of possible goal choices. Values for the field are summed or averaged to arrive at a value for the goal.

Export users from an app

Now you can export all user data from an app by clicking the Export All Users button on the Manage Users page. QuickBase saves the list of users in the app to a CSV file.

Edit which roles may view reports

When customizing a common (shared) report, you can now change which roles are allowed to view the report. Previously those settings were only available while you were creating a report.

Increased goal limit for gauge charts

The upper limit for the goal on gauge charts is now 9,999,999,999. (QBE010248)

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 you had access to the child app but not the master app in a cross-app relationship, choosing next>>> to see more choices for reference proxy field values caused an “Access Denied” error message. This issue has been resolved.


Invalid entries in Time of Day fields were saved as blank. This issue has been resolved, and the validity of data in Time of Day fields is now checked when adding or editing a record.


A field hidden via form rule was visible (and blank) in email notifications unless it was the only field in its section. This issue has been resolved.


Invalid entries in Date and Date/Time fields were saved as 1/1/1970. This issue has been resolved, and the validity of data in these field types is now checked when adding or editing a record.


Deleting a file attachment from a record removed all revisions of the file listed on the Manage File Attachments page. This issue has been resolved.


(Google Chrome) Choosing New table based on this field in a report caused QuickBase to display a “Building display…” message but the operation never completed. This issue has been resolved.


The online help was changed to emphasize the fact that sending Open email notifications to an email addresses in a field has an unexpected effect when multiple records change. In this case, all changed records are sent to all email addresses in all the changed records.


(Internet Explorer 9, 10, and 11) The Copy rule button copied the selected form rule, but displayed an incorrect error message. This issue has been resolved.
