All together now: the rise of formal and informal user groups
Many companies whose Quickbase builder numbers begin to grow across teams and divisions, establish user groups that help bring the power and support of community together for the benefit of all. Across our customer base, user groups take many forms, but all provide value to both builder and business from the unique perspective of each company.
Says Hayes about CCI Systems’ builder community: “We have implemented a bi-weekly meeting of all Quickbase builders, so we can come and share best practices and talk about the cool stuff we’re doing. And if we’ve discovered something that we can do that maybe the rest of the group would benefit from we go and share those best practices with each other so that we can all learn as a group.”
Baker from Southwest shares her insight into the power of the group:“It’s definitely an advantage to have someone there to show you how to do something, especially when the deliverable is expected yesterday. That’s why we created a distribution list of Quickbase app builders at Southwest. Anyone can join, and if one of us runs into a problem we can e-mail the group and quickly find someone who can help.”
And our Quickbase builder from the leading research and educational institution just collaborated with two others to start an instantly popular user group there: “We had our first meeting two weeks ago, and it was a big hit. We advertised it through email and 35 to 40 Quickbase app builders from many different departments showed up. Some were just getting started and others had been building for a few years. Everybody was interested in seeing what everyone else was doing and picking up Quickbase tips and advice. We’re already setting up topics for future monthly meetings, and plan to split each session between app demos and instruction.”
