Are your QuickBase users leaving important fields empty? Do you want a surefire way to ensure that critical fields are never left blank again? If so, this tip is for you! Marking a field as required on your form will alleviate the pains of tracking down missing information once and for all.

Require that fields be filled in on your forms.

  • Is there information that should always be entered when your users add a record?
  • Have you lost productivity tracking down 'missing' information?
  • Is there a minimum amount of information needed for your workflow to function properly?
 

In this short video, I'll walk you through three things you need to stop the madness and begin requiring fields be filled in.

  1. Open 'customize' form
  2. Select the field
  3. Check the 'Required' box

Be sure not to abuse this powerful tool. If you mark too many fields as required you can run into issues. You can also consider using form rules to require and un-require fields depending on what the user has already entered.
