Adding custom code to Quickbase Apps is a useful way to extend functionality and create quick solutions for your company’s needs. JavaScript makes up the vast majority of custom code that developers have added to Quickbase apps, which means it’s likely that you have some in your app. Until recently, this was an excellent and encouraged approach to customizing your applications. However, there are some upcoming changes to the way that Quickbase will be handling JavaScript. These changes may limit functionality in ways that could negatively affect your application. Importantly, if you don’t take action to address these changes soon, the consequences could be significant.

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.

Quickbase Integrations Save You Time & Money – From the Pros

By Richard Crum on Apr 7, 2021 11:22:00 AM

Quickbase integrations save you time and money

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 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 Project Management With Gantt

If you’re already using Quickbase to manage your data, you know what an incredibly robust tool it is for a wide range of uses. That being said, the standard Quickbase timeline report doesn’t offer the kind of flexibility that most project managers need. 

Too often, project managers end up pulling data out of their Quickbase system and into another program only to find there’s no way to then port that data back into Quickbase. The result is a frustrating and cumbersome process that fails to leverage the potential of your existing database.

As the #1 Quickbase Solution Provider, we know just how robust and versatile Quickbase can be. We also know that on their own, out-of-the-box Quickbase extensions don’t always serve the exact needs of every company.

Do you have partners in other countries who need information automatically translated?

How often do you run a check up on your Quickbase apps? Do you wait for a problem or frustrations to build and then go into trouble-shooting mode? If so, you’re very likely not getting the most out of your Quickbase applications. Just like people and cars, apps can benefit from periodic check ups to make sure everything is running smoothly.
