Here are some highlights of Text My QuickBase

  • This tool DOES NOT require any components to be downloaded and installed on your mobile device or pc.
  • You can send a text message or email message to trigger our tool to perform some action against your QuickBase data.
  • You can track the message requests and responses. Take a look at the Texts table "List All" report. We log the text/email activity in this table.
  • Demo it for yourself...send a text message (or an email) to In the body of the message include the word "info" (without the quotes). You should receive a message back in a few seconds. 
    Where did that message come from? ...From the Text Keywords table. Click the "List All" report from that table and you'll see a record with the keyword value of "info".  The message you received was retrieved from the "Message" field on this table.  Now take a look at the Texts table, "List All", and you should see your request in there as well.

    Put in your own Keyword and message and try it again.   Add a new record in the Text Keywords table, include a message and then send a text/email  to with your new keyword in the body of the message.  take a look at the Texts table and see that request logged as a new record.

    This is a very basic DEMO.  We will work with you to configure a script to retrieve data from your application based on your keywords and filtering criteria for each.  Each keyword can trigger one or more QuickBase calls to get, update, delete and/or insert data into one or more tables.  

    **Want more?  How about returning a clients outstanding balance which is a summary field on the Clients table? Use a special keyword followed by the client key field and see what comes back.  Look at the tables and see where the data is coming from.

When you bring additional fields into a conversion, Quick Base often finds inconsistencies. For example, say you're converting your Companies column into its own table. One company, Acme Corporation, has offices in New York, Dallas and Portland. So, when you add the City column to the conversion, Quick Base finds three different locations for Acme. A single value in the column you're converting can only match one value in any additional field. Quick Base needs you to clean up the extra cities before it can create your new table. To do so, you have one of two choices:

  • If you want to create three separate Acme records (Acme-New York, Acme-Dallas and Acme-Portland) click the Conform link at the top of the column.
  • If the dissimilar entries are mistakes (say Acme only has one office in New York and the other locations are data-entry errors) go back into your table and correct the inconsistencies—in this case, changing all locations to New York. Then try the conversion again.
