How Can I Quickly Find Information in My Application?

When your QuickBase application contains more than a handful of records, you need some help locating specific items that you want to view. QuickBase offers a quick find feature that you can use to search your entire application or a specific table for a word or phrase. If a word or phrase isn't enough, and you want to specify more detailed parameters for a search, check out the advanced search option.

To quickly search the contents of your application:
  1. Click Search on the Global bar.

  2. Click the Search <app name> tab.

  3. Enter the information that you want to search for, then click Search.

    Note: If you don't see this button, your app admin has removed access to it for users in your role.

QuickBase searches the contents of all records, and then displays a list of records from each table that match your search term. Results are returned in the column and row order format specified by the default report settings for each table. If you don't like the layout, you can change the reporting defaults for the table.

To search the data in a specific table:
  1. Open a table from the Table bar, then click Search on the Global bar.

    Note: If you don't see this button, your app admin has removed access to it for users in your role.

  2. Enter the information that you want to search for, then click Search. QuickBase shows you a report with set of records containing the term you entered. If you don't get the results you wanted, use the icon on the Page bar to modify the report. You can also save the report for future use.
