Here’s hoping your February is full of hearts and flowers. We’ve been hard at work, making sure it includes some QuickBase love, too. Here’s what you’ll find in our February 21, 2016 release.

If you missed the January release notes, check them out in the new Release Notes area on the QuickBase Blog. Don’t forget to subscribe to the blog.

List reports on your app’s home page using the new Reports List widget

Now you can include a list of reports and charts on your app’s home page. Just drop the new Reports List widget in the sidebar or body of your app home page to list all the common reports in the app. The reports are listed by table, and if you’ve organized your reports into groups, also by group.

Edit records easily using Grid Edit reports

Formula and lookup fields now update dynamically when you edit records using a Grid Edit report.

 

View deactivated users in a realm

The list of realm users on the Directory tab now contains an Is Deactivated? column. This column will show a checkmark to indicate users who can no longer log into QuickBase.

 

Hide the Totals row in Summary reports

Summary reports now have an option to hide the Totals row.

Connect to more QuickBooks Online data

Create connected tables that bring in more of your QuickBooks Online data, optimized for use with QuickBase. The Invoices – Line Items data set now includes 8 more fields, including Customer ID.  Customer ID is useful when building relationships among tables connected to QuickBooks, like Invoices and Customers. 

Select Invoices – Line Items  when creating a new connected table

invoices_line_items

If you already have a connected table that uses Invoices – Line Items as its source, create a new connection to take advantage of this update.

 

Easily identify the Refresh Key field for a connected table

The Refresh Key field for a connected table now displays with this icon refresh_key on the Field Properties page.
Field_properties_Refresh_key_on_hover

We’ve also included a description of the Refresh Key. (It’s typically the same as the Key field for a table.)

Field_properties_refresh_key_icon_

 

Simplified wording for Unique and Required field properties

We changed the wording of the Unique and Required checkboxes on the Field Properties page. The checkbox for Required now reads Must be filled in, while the checkbox for Unique now reads Must be unique.
Required_unique_field_properties
