Does the default justification of data or text in your QuickBase reports not match your expectations? If that's the case you can easily override the default. This will ensure smooth readability and understanding of your brilliant reports.

Align your text and data with the Column Properties.

  • Does your report 'read' easily from left to right? 
  • Would you like your icons or checkboxes to appear in the center of a column?

  1. Open report
  2. Select 'Column Properties'
  3. Choose justification

Clicking on this arrow will get me the column properties. Using the column properties, I can change the justification to now be on the left. Now my employee number column is justified on the left. Let's try that again with the 'employment status' field...”
