If you access a lot of applications, the list that appears on the My Apps page can grow very long. You can search for an application to find it quickly. Your search term can be a text snippet, word, or part of a word that you know appears in an application name.
Go to the My Apps page.
In the Search my apps field, type in the term you want to find. QuickBase searches for the term in app names and filters your application list as you type.
Go to the My Apps page.
Click Adv. Search.
Select your search mode from the dropdown:
Search for text in the name or description of an application – Enter the search term in the Text field, and optionally click Include all public applications in search, then click Search.
Note: If you want your search to include applications that everyone on the Internet can access, select the Include all public applications in search checkbox. If you clear this checkbox, the search excludes public applications. (Making an application public is not an option for accounts on the QuickBase Essential plan.)
List all applications to which I have been granted access – Select this search mode to display a list of all applications you can access. Be aware that this list could potentially be longer than the list that appears on the My Apps page. For instance, if many people at your company have granted access to everyone within your email domain, all their applications appear within the results list.
List all applications that I manage – Select this search mode to see only those applications in which you are the manager.
List all applications that are accessible by the group – Select this search mode to find all the applications that a particular group can access. Enter the name of the group in the Group Name box and click Search.
QuickBase searches both application names and descriptions; the search terms must all appear in the app name or in the description. For example, if you search for contact manager, both words must appear in the app name or in the description, or the search results do not include this app.
Articles, pronouns, prepositions, and other words that are too generic are discarded before QuickBase performs the search. For example, if you search for a document manager, the search matches the app called Document Manager even though the app name does not contain a.
If the search returns no applications, enter a more general term. For example, if you search for purchase requisition and no applications are found, search for purchase.
