You can use voting for all sorts of fun stuff in Quickbase.

It's kinda like having your own thumbs up 👍 or thumbs down 👎 for any record in your app.

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

This tutorial is a sneak peek into the training where I walk through the scenario, setup, and demo for adding helpfulness votes to FAQs in Quickbase.

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

 

Voting Scenario:

  • FAQs for common HR Questions are documented in a Quickbase
  • The HR team would like to measure the helpful score of the FAQs (# of helpful votes / total # of votes)
  • They do not want employees to be able to vote more than once for any single FAQ
  • They would also like an audit log of all votes

Voting Objective (with one HELPFUL click):

  • Mark an FAQ as helpful (by adding to both the numerator and denominator of the helpful formula)
  • Disable user from casting additional votes on that FAQ (helpful or not helpful)
  • Log vote for auditing

Voting Objective (with one UNHELPFUL click):

  • Mark an FAQ as not helpful (by adding only the denominator of the helpful formula)
  • Disable user from casting additional votes on that FAQ (helpful or not helpful)
  • Log vote for auditing

This training is directly from the Quick Base Junkie course Secrets of API Buttons.

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