Quickbase released a host of performance enhancements in recent months, intensifying the speed and efficiency of applications built within the platform. You may have already experienced increased efficiency from some of these features – such as faster batch deletes, the new default record picker behavior, an improved find formula function and a more efficient summary operator, just to name a few.
Making accurate, data-driven decisions is important in today’s rapidly changing business environment. In order to do that, however, you need a great reporting tool and a well-designed dashboard view. Quickbase recently released a powerful update to their dashboard functionality that goes far beyond just offering a prettier design and easier development experience.
It’s not hyperbolic to say that the new Quickbase dashboard features will revolutionize the way you see data, work with data and report on data in your Quickbase app. These updates offer tremendous potential for leveraging data across all of your applications, cutting and filtering information in ways that previously just weren’t possible.
Changes coming in June and August will mean that the JSI in your app will no longer be editable, and your app might break.
When deciding which low-code app development platform to use, people often find themselves making a decision between two powerful tools: Quickbase vs. Power Apps. Both are strong contenders for solving critical business problems, automating processes and improving productivity and collaboration. However, each has its own strengths.
Microsoft Power Apps is touted as “a suite of apps, services, connectors and data platform that provides a rapid application development environment.” The goal of the tool is to provide a space for app development that doesn’t require a tremendous amount of technical expertise. The platform has several key strengths, particularly for enterprise organizations already using (and paying for) the Microsoft suite of tools.
In a comparison of Quickbase vs. Power Apps, however, Quickbase comes out on top as a more flexible, versatile and easy to use platform.
In our work as Quickbase Consultants, we see so many companies who could be doing more with their existing Quickbase apps. Because Quickbase integrates with virtually every major app or platform, it’s an absolute powerhouse if you know how to put it to work. It’s just that many of the most useful Quickbase API integrations aren’t immediately obvious to those who haven’t been working with the platform as long as we have.
The other challenge is that too many organizations try to make the wrong app into their operating platform. Accounting software is designed for accountants. Collaboration tools aren’t designed to manage your inventory. Quickbase, however, is designed to be what you need it to be.
Quickbase is an incredibly robust tool for developing the customized apps you need to streamline your company’s processes. As with any tool, though, it takes time and energy to learn how to use it properly — and that’s probably a waste of your internal resources.
The first time I built a customized app with Quickbase, it took nearly six weeks. Now, I can build one in just a few days. Too many companies make the mistake of wasting in-house resources trying to building tools on their own.
Love it or hate it, Microsoft Excel is still a pretty entrenched piece of software for most businesses. And for good reason. When you stop and think about it, you realize Excel is a lot like an old family friend. It’s hard working. Pretty reliable. But maybe not 100% living in modern times. This post will take a look at Excel in a modern context and will show you why so many companies are moving away from it.
We’ve talked about it a million times before, but it bears repeating: the goal of every company is to get as much quality work done as they can as efficiently and cost effectively as possible. VeilSun understands that perhaps better than anyone. After all, that’s the whole reason Quickbase was invented in the first place. So, it makes sense for you to bring a developer on full time in house, right? Well, not so fast. This blog will take a look at that idea along with some of the benefits of outsourcing your Quickbase development.
Microsoft Access has been a stalwart in the database space for years. Ever since its debut in 1992, businesses everywhere have trusted it as their go-to database management system for workflows and data tracking. But, as with all things technological, if it doesn’t evolve, it dies. And that’s what we’re seeing with MS Access now.
