New API's for Quick Base

The Quick Base product release scheduled for Sunday, June 15, 9:30-10:30AM ET will include an online Quick Base HTTP API Guide offering new APIs for Quick Base customers who want to perform operations on groups of users. Full list of operations is available in the Quick Base release notes as well as bug fixes and other enhancements. One such enhancement is how account admins will be able to manage all groups in their accounts whereas previously the group owner had to explicitly allow access.
Intuit does not expect any disruption to the Quick Base service during the scheduled release time, but real-time status can always be checked via the Quick Base service page.

Enhanced Capabilities with High Charts

Quick Base is using High Charts as its internal charting engine. Its expanded capabilities allow you to create more robust reports, but still with the same look and feel of the reports your Quick Base users are familiar with. Check it out for yourself or any one of our Data Collaborative developers would be happy to show you how it can help your business today.

Google Charts

    1. Google charts are fast, free, and easy to connect to Quick Base -- with a little help!

      Quick Base upgraded its charts last year, and added some nice features like being able to change the size of a chart, and save it as a jpg. But we still get a lot of charting requests that Quick Base can't fill. In these cases, our "go to" option is Google charts.

  • Celebrate the New Year with International Style

    Intuit's October release enhanced international support of Quick Base, including how dates are listed. So when you're ready for work in 2014 you can now have the date displayed in any configuration that best suits your business needs.
    For a refresher on the properties at the account, app, and field levels to support international use of Quick Base refer to the release notes. These properties also allow you to control the number formats for currency and more.
    Happy New Year from all of us at Data Collaborative. We're looking forward to working with you in 2014!
