How to log name & date on notes fields in Quickbase

Notes, comments, activity logs, etc. are all great for allowing users to annotate records with important details. However, things can get a little confusing when you don't know who made a comment or when it was made. On top of that when historical comments are deleted, modified, or otherwise manipulated, it can cause all sorts of problems.

If you have these types of multi-line text fields in your Quickbase and don't have log entries turned on, you'll want to change that now!

  • Notes
  • Comments
  • History
  • Issue
  • Log
 


To begin logging the name and date/time for your notes fields you'll need to:

  1. Open the field's properties
  2. Click the box for "Log the edits to this field, and show them on forms"
  3. Select the options you want & save

AND if you do have them turned on, I have steps on how to make edits to historical entries if necessary (and absolutely essential).

After this, there will be no more wondering who put that note there!
