As a key part of any organizations data governance strategy, Quickbase allows customers to define data labels in applications in order to categorize their applications based on the type of data they contain. Specifically, it is a best practice to define and label applications containing sensitive information. Admins can align with larger data classification strategies at their organization and provide more visibility into the data stored on the Quickbase platform to end users. Additionally, data labels come with associated descriptions to inform end users how the data within should, or should not be, handled.
Although data classification of apps is supported within the platform, it can be extended to external IT data classification and DLP systems. While there is no native support for identifying specific sensitive information such as PII, many customers employ practices like building workflow checks into key apps with Pipelines and our API.
