This month, we’re simplifying how you use and share information in Quick Base with new calendar reports. We’re also adding new features for realm admins: user session management and early access for audit logs of all logins. This release also includes the ability to edit individual user info from the new Manage All Users page, real-time error checking for all formula types on an opt-in basis, a beta of an updated Zapier connector, and more.
The February release of Quick Base, including the features and fixes listed in these release notes, is available starting Sunday, February 25, 2018.
Use and share information more easily with our new calendar reports that feature daily and weekly views, double-clicking to add events, editing events via drag and drop, color-coding for events, and more.
The new calendars were introduced in the December 2017 release to customers who opted in. We added enhancements based on feedback, and the new calendar format will take the place of existing calendars starting on February 25, 2018. Existing calendar reports will display the same data, but in the new format.
Manage and report on your events and tasks more easily with daily and weekly views. Switch between daily, weekly, and monthly views via tabs. The last view you used will display by default the next time you open the calendar report.
Now you can manage your events directly in the calendar view. Double-click to add a new event. In the monthly and weekly views, drag and drop events to change the day. In the weekly and daily views, click and drag the top of the event to change start time or click and drag the bottom of event to change duration.
Note: Since dragging/resizing updates the field values of the start and end fields selected for the calendar, if either of these fields is not editable (e.g. a formula field), the drag and drop will not be enabled for that calendar report.
Now, calendar events reflect your app setting for the first day of the week. For example, if you specify in App Properties that Monday is the first day of the week, starting after the release on February 25, 2018, all the calendar reports in your app will show Monday as the first day of each week. (Previously, this setting was primarily used for Work Date formulas, and calendars defaulted to Sunday as the first day).
You can also customize the first day of the week on a per- report basis, and have a different first day of the week for every calendar report you create.
New calendars will correctly display events that end at 12:00 Midnight. For example, if you have an event that starts on February 9 at 9 am and ends on February 12 at 12:00 Midnight, the new calendars will show that event from February 9-11. (The old calendar format displayed this event going from February 9-12, inclusive.)
New calendars will correctly display multi-day events based on a Work Date field that includes a weekend. An event that runs from Friday to Monday will display as a continuous 4-day event running through the weekend. (The old calendar format displayed this as two events, one on Friday, one on Monday).
Now you can color-code events so you can tell at a glance what types of upcoming events or tasks you have. In the calendar report builder, add a formula under the new color-coding section.
Here’s a sample formula you can cut and paste and edit as needed:
Case ([Priority], “High”, “red”, “Medium”, “orange”, “Low”, “yellow”)
Notes on color-coding:
Emailed calendar reports will now send a report of the events currently visible to the sender. Calendar report subscription emails will include a report containing all of the events in the month specified by the “Initial month to display” report setting.
We have simplified the following settings for the new calendars:
Note: The new calendars will not display on home pages created before the current drag and drop home page builder was launched in 2013. If you cannot view your calendar from your home page, you may need to re-build your home page. Also, if the home page you rebuild is not the default for your app, you will need to go to your Roles settings and re-assign the home page to the appropriate role(s).

We continue to focus on quality. Below are the issues we fixed this month.
Note: Platform security, billing changes, back-end tooling, and performance are all ongoing commitments and as such, each release may include changes in these areas.
