What is the AI Smart Builder?
Quickbase's AI-powered Smart Builder can turn answers to a simple set of questions into a custom app. It pairs natural language processing with proprietary technology to create an app with tables, table relationships, sample data, reports, and a dashboard.
If you're a Quickbase admin, you can turn this feature on or off for your realms by submitting a support ticket.
Tips to create great apps with Smart Builder
Here are some tips to help you make an app that meets your needs using the Smart Builder:
- Write as you normally do. There's no correct way to answer the Smart Builder questions—if you'd like to use long sentences or write in short lists, go ahead!
- Answer all of the questions and add as much detail as you can.
- Avoid non-English characters and inappropriate language like swear words.
- Don't enter information that could be sensitive or private.
