Voting Example with API Buttons in Quick Base

Subscribe on YouTube

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

It's kinda like having your own thumbs up πŸ‘ or thumbs down πŸ‘Ž for any record in your app.

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 course where I walk through the scenario, setup, and demo for adding helpfulness votes to FAQs in Quick Base.

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 Quick Base
  • 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 video is directly from the Quick Base Junkie course Secrets of API Buttons for Quick Base course.

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)!!
