Trigger an Action to occur when a record is Added, Modified or Deleted!
What is a QB Trigger?
"Code that is automatically executed in response to specific events that occur on a particular table."
A QB Trigger can be fired when a record is Added, Modified or Deleted. The QB Trigger can be designed to perform one or many actions against your Quick Base when fired. We take advantage of the Quick Base Email Notification functionality to fire "QB Triggers".
When a record is modified, a QB Trigger can be designed to read the edited record, download the file attachment and email it to the email address stored in the "Email" field on the edited record.
Email File Attachments to your users, you can even send them to email
addresses that do not have access to your Quick Base application.
Create an Audit of events that take place within your Quick Base application.
Upload files to Quick Base from an email message, good for modile device uploads
