How Quick Base is different from spreadsheet-like-solutions
In a recent Harvard Business Review study, 92% of CIOs say a "dual-track" approach is essential to digital transformation, pairing traditional, IT-led grand scale transformation with a new form of business-led "rapid cycle innovation". Yet only 31% of companies are adopting this approach.[1] [1] Drive Business Success with a Dual-Track Approach to Transformation, Harvard Business Review, July 28, 2020 Using the traditional, IT-led grand scale transformation IT and business leaders have created a solid tech foundation and are making some progress, butÂ… Core customizations are too rigid, expensive, and slow, relying on hard-to-find specialty resources. Point solution sprawl creates extra work, hundreds of data islands, and mounting expenses. And more DIY tools, like error-prone spreadsheets and no code tools, make data invisible to employees who need it day-to-day and a burden to maintain. Even with all this effort, the business is still constrained by an unresponsive and inflexible system. Join Quick Base VP of Product Management, Andrew Varley and Product Manager, Alice Rich on this webinar to learn how Quick Base's low-code solutions can help you: Unite your data and put it to work Build an ecosystem of apps that work for your workflow Safely engage your people in citizen development to let those closest to the work build the solutions Mature beyond spreadsheet-centric solutions Surface insights in real time so you always have the information you need at your fingertips

Intermediate Training - Beyond Basic Reporting
If you've already learned the basics about reports in fundamental training, then you're ready for Beyond Basic Reporting.

Intermediate Training - Relationships: Lineage
Do you have an app that you feel has too much complexity in its tables and relationships? Have you been challenged in deciding what relationships you need to create? In this session we will explore how builders end up with unnecessary relationships, how to identify lineage in our relationships, and how lineage can declutter and streamline your app. In this 90-minute session, we will: - Determine when a relationship is unnecessary - Define "lineage," a concept of using sequences of relationships in place of creating extra relationships - Learn how to identify lineage in our apps - Learn how share data between tables that aren't directly related

How IT and Business Leaders Can Drive Operational Agility with Low Code
Agility requires large scale transformation and rapid innovation We live in the agility age, surrounded by constant change. Cloud-native companies are disrupting every industry. Businesses are changing faster than your technology can support. Yet, just as demands keep rising, tech resources are harder to find or more expensive. So, you're pressured to re-think how you're approaching digital transformation—or risk falling behind. In a recent Harvard Business Review study, 92% of CIOs say a "dual-track" approach is essential to digital transformation, pairing traditional, IT-led grand scale transformation with a new form of business-led "rapid cycle innovation". Yet only 31% of companies are adopting this approach.[1] Join Quick Base Director of Solutions Consulting, Chris Pliakas and Area VP, Enterprise, Maureen Morris on this webinar to learn how low-code solutions can help you: : - Unite your data and put it to work - Build unique dynamic workflows - Safely engage your people in citizen development

Intermediate Training - Conditional Dropdowns
Have you ever wanted a dropdown in your app to be filtered based on a selection in another dropdown? Like selecting a category of "hardware" would only show sub-categories related to hardware, like "mobile device," "monitor" or "accessories?" Conditional dropdowns do just that. If you want to learn how to set this up, this session is for you. And, if you've previously attended Relationships: Lineage, this session will teach you about when you can build extra relationships that are typically otherwise not needed, as those extra relationships make conditional dropdowns work. In this 90-minute session, we will: - Define what a conditional dropdown is - Explore the extra relationships that need to be created to make conditional dropdowns work - Learn how to create a conditional dropdown

Intermediate Training - Many-to-Many Relationships
Have you ever struggled to decide how to relate two tables because "one-to-many" doesn't quite cover what you need? Have you ever related two tables twice, with each being the "many?" Or have you already explored how to create "many-to-many relationships" but just aren't sure you're doing it right? If you answered yes to any of questions, this training is for you. We'll take a closer look at how to recognize when you need a many-to-many setup and show you how it's done. In this hour we will: - Learn how to recognize when we need a many-to-many relationship - Show how to create a many-to-many relationship - Discover how to adjust our forms to make apps with many-to-many relationships intuitive

Intermediate Training - Intro to Formulas
Are you curious about learning how to use Quick Base formulas? Do you have formula fields in an app you inherited and you're not quite sure how they work? Are you looking to harness the power of formulas, but don't know where to get started? If you answered "yes" or even "I think so" to any of those questions, this training is for you! In Intro to Formulas, we will introduce you to the basics of formulas. This training is a workshop session, and you'll discover the power of formula fields by creating a handful of formula fields in a live app. In this 90-minute session, we will: - Learn the basics of formula functions, operators, and syntax - List the benefits of using formulas instead of manual-entry fields - Explore conditional formulas to produce different results based on data in other fields - Expand the functionality of buttons (formula URL fields)
