Add a Field to a Relationship

You can greatly enhance relationships between tables by adding additional fields, like lookup and summary fields. These fields can help viewers by showing them more information or letting them move back and forth between tables quickly and easily. Read about relationships to learn more about these field types. You can add one of these fields at any time.

To add fields to a relationship:

  1. Open the application which contains the relationship you want to enhance with additional fields.

    If you've created a relationship between tables in two different applications, open the application that contains the details table. (Don't know what this is? Read about relationships.)

  2. Open table relationships in one of the following ways:

    Note: Unless you've created a relationship across separate applications, you can select either the master or the details table to add fields to the relationship.

  3. Click the relationship that you want to edit.

    QuickBase displays the Relationship Properties page, which lists fields that comprise the relationship. The left side of the page shows fields in the Master table and the right side of the page, displays fields from your details table. To learn more about what each of these fields can do to enhance your application, click a field name below, or read About Relationships.

  4. Add the fields:

  5. When you have finished adding fields, click Done.
