Adding color to the text on Quick Base reports and forms will help the important information stand out! Coloring either the background, the text itself, or both is a sure fire way of grabbing attention.

Do you need to make your form or report text stand out?

If you're looking to do any of the following, you are in the right place!

  • Add colored text
  • Add color to the text background (aka highlighting text)
  • Combine unformatted text with colored text and/or text with a colored background

This tutorial will show you how to add color using the Rich Text Formula field and a little bit of HTML code. There are three main steps to adding beautiful colors to your Quick Base records:

  1. Create a Rich Text Formula Field
  2. Enter text or field references to be colored
  3. Add the HTML span tag with the style element for formatting the text color or background

Three cheers for colored text! Hip Hip Hooray!
