Trigger Notification with API Buttons in Quick Base

Subscribe on YouTube

We love automatic Quick Base email notifications, but sometimes you want to pick and choose when a notification is sent and even who it's sent to.

Being able to choose when a notification is sent can really cut down on unnecessary emails... and the tendency to start ignoring Quick Base notifications 😬 (not that we'd ever be guilty of that).

Standard notifications have a set trigger and recipient. This CANNOT be modified on the fly... unless you've added an API button to 'trigger' the notification ON DEMAND.

In the Secrets of API Buttons for Quick Base course, I teach you, step-by-step, how to do just that!

This video is a sneak peek into the BONUS section of the course where I walk you through the setup and a demo of the email notification trigger API button IN ACTION!

FULL DISCLOSURE: The step-by-step walkthrough of the API formula is only available in the paid course (learn more here). 

Trigger Notification SETUP

Add new fields:

  • URL Formula Field
  • Checkbox Field
  • Optional: Email field

Add new notification:

  • Set the notification to send when the new checkbox field changes
  • Set who the notification is sent to based on either the field you created for email, or to a set person/list/group.
  • Customize the notification subject & body

This video is directly from the BONUS section of the Quick Base Junkie course Secrets of API Buttons for Quick Base.

It is one of many examples where I walk you through, step-by-step, the scenario, setup, formula, and live demonstration of a Quick Base API Button in ACTION (not to mention all the training and resources to build your own API buttons from scratch)!!
