Print a QuickBase Screen

QuickBase is chock full of print controls that let you generate a hard copy of records and reports. But sometimes you want to print screens that don't have a dedicated print menu, like a list of fields in a table or users in your application.

If the screen to be printed is very wide, all of the columns may not fit on a single printed page.  In this case, you can print in landscape mode and/or scale the page to shrink the content (print at 75% for example). Refer to your browser's help for directions on changing these print settings.

If the screen contains row colorization or field colorization, you must enable your browser's Print background color and images setting in order for the colors to print.  Refer to your browser's help for directions on changing this setting. Note that Google Chrome does not support printing background colors.  

To print the QuickBase screen in your browser:

  1. In the menu on any application page, select Customize > Print this page.
    A print preview of the page displays followed by a print dialog box.

  2. Set print preferences. Select the destination printer, type in the number of copies you want to print and set any other preferences.

  3. Click Print (Internet Explorer and Chrome) or OK (Firefox).

Note: Changes that have not been saved will not appear in the printout. Also, some screens cannot be printed using Print this page, such as lists of  form fields and form rules for example.
