Features and Functionality
As winner of Gartner’s Peer Insights Customer’s Choice award for Enterprise High-Productivity aPaaS (Application platform as a service), you can expect Quick Base to have some pretty neat features. Here are some of the best tools we enjoyed using while reviewing this company:
You can build your own cloud-based app that’ll do exactly what you need it to do without any developer skills at all. As you go through all of the features, you’ll notice how easy it is to create customized tools that suit your business needs. Everything from dashboards to reports to task lists and more, you’ll get a tailored experience whether you work within the API or go it on your own.
This is certainly an essential addition to any project management software since it takes a ton of the workload off your shoulders. Create rules so that each task that has to happen will be completed exactly when it's supposed to. From approvals to invoices, Quick Base's automation covers the bases. We also liked how intuitive it is. You don't have to know a lot of coding, the Quick Base automation is all click-based (i.e., click a button, create a rule, no coding involved). You can also set up your notifications, so you stay on top of important events and can keep track of how automation is progressing.
Quick Base has built-in data integration, so you don’t have to waste time inputting information that you’ve already dealt with. You can connect with loads of apps including ZenDesk, Salesforce, Slack, Marketo, Zapier, Workato, and a lot more.
Quick Base lets you easily create dashboards for every situation that comes up. If you want to update stakeholders, create a dashboard. If you want to view data on a finished project, create a dashboard. Want to get real-time visibility on a project schedule? That's right; create a dashboard. This is one of the most flexible and useful tools we've seen, and it is incredibly informative. Dashboards can be private or shared, interactive, and dynamic, making them powerful as well.
Quick Base also has out-of-the-box templates that you can use if customization just isn’t your thing. We like that this is an option since not everyone has the time or expertise to craft customized apps for their business purposes.
Quick Base makes teamwork easier for both large and small organizations with streamlining and communication tools that keep tasks organized and progressing smoothly. Here’s how Quick Base helps team members collaborate better:
Share data instantly
Voice opinions or ideas about a task/project
Create online to-do lists
Track changes that can be viewed publicly
Email reports, timelines, and calendars
Receive notifications about specific projects or tasks
Manage roles and permissions

Quick Base offers both monthly and annual service plans, so you can pick the one that works best for your budget. There are 3 packages to choose from:

In addition to the features included in your plan, Quick Base offers some extra features as add-ons to your plan. Note that the add-ons are usually included in the more advanced plans. For example, you'll pay for audit logs as an add-on if you have the Premier Plan, but it's included within the Platform Plan.
Plus, Quick Base offers you a true 30-day free trial, which means you won’t be asked to provide your credit card details before you get started.
Quick Base has both mobile and desktop apps. While you can access the regular desktop app from your mobile device, we recommend using the designated app for the appropriate device as it will significantly alter your user experience.
- Desktop App
After signing up for a service plan, you can log into your account. You’ll then be brought to the home page where you can customize your reports, charts, etc., set up your account, and access all of the most commonly used Quick Base tasks, like creating a table, configuring your app, inviting users, and more. The home page is user-friendly and designed to be an easy access point for both users and managers.
- iOS and Android Apps
Quick Base offers a mobile-friendly app for anyone who wants to take their business on the road. There’s a dedicated app for both iOS and Android devices available through the Apple App Store and Google Play Store. Just download it from the app store, and log in with your login credentials to access your full Quick Base account.
Using the mobile app for either Android or iOS, users can access all of the features of the desktop app, albeit some of the features may look slightly different to accommodate screen and performance changes. On the mobile app you can:
Manage (edit, delete, add records, etc.)
Change views (Kanban, table, chart, calendar) and see it in a mobile-friendly format
Access contacts and email functionality
Quick Base uses top quality security measures to keep your data safe, including firewalls and data encryption. It also has its own security procedures (developed in-house).
Additionally, we were impressed by how transparent Quick Base is with all of its policies and information. If a change is ever made that will affect your information or privacy, instead of burying it in the fine print, Quick Base actually displays the policy change prominently on the website or sends you a personalized message.
Customer Service and Support
Quick Base customer support is available Monday thru Friday from 7am to 8pm. You can use the online contact form to send an email with your specific questions, or you can call them to speak to an agent directly for a more detailed conversation. Quick Base is also on several social media channels including Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn.
Finally, if you prefer to go the DIY route, Quick Base can still help you out with its huge database of user guides and help center Q&A’s. The Quick Base Help center is incredibly well-organized and wonderfully thorough, covering every topic imaginable. There’s even a user-managed community forum where you can ask or browse questions and get answers from other users with experience.
