Sample flag clearing per record

Try This App

This is a simple app which uses a checkbox to show each user what has changed since they last touched a record. Unlike the built-in QuickBase New flag (which auto-disappears 24 hours after the user logs in), this approach allows the checkbox to stick around until the user decides to clear it. Each user of the app can decide when to clear the "New" checkbox for an individual Record, by clicking the "Clear" button for that record. In this app, the new checkbox can be cleared at will, per-record. There is another app in Exchange that shows an implementation that clears all the checkboxes at once. This was set up using a relationship between the Records and Audit Trail table, and a summary field that summarizes the last time the current user clicked the button to "clear flags" as tracked in the Audit Trail table.

I have worked in QuickBase for years and years. I enjoy figuring out how to solve problems using the platform. If I develop something that I think someone else could find useful, I try to submit it to Exchange so that I can save someone time having to do it themselves. I am always amazed by the cool things other users have done with QuickBase.
