Quickbase Pipelines lets you fully integrate your data across all your existing cloud-based software tools. You can create a pipeline to connect Quickbase data to another cloud-based software, or to connect data between two third-party software tools and your work is saved automatically. With Pipelines you could:
- Send a Slack message to your team whenever a new Quickbase record is created
- Create a Jira ticket with feedback from a customer
- Export a CSV from Quickbase to Box
- Use Google Calendar to send a Slack message when a specific event has been created
- When a row in a Google Sheet is created, we want to update a specific Quickbase table
- Automatically update information from a Formstack Form, into records in a Quickbase application
Quickbase Pipelines empowers businesses to manage people and data, report and gain insight, orchestrate workflow, and integrate systems within one unified platform. Pipelines are made up of the following:
- Pipeline: the overall workflow that is defined and automated by builders
- Channel: a third-party service or built-in function used to configure a Pipeline
- Step: the individual building blocks of business logic within a Pipeline
Pipelines can be built with an intuitive, drag-and-drop visual builder, which makes it easy for citizen developers or business builders to create more complex integrations and orchestrate automated workflow even faster on their own or in partnership with IT.
With Pipelines you can automate your workflows between SaaS tools, such as Slack, Jira, and MailChimp. You can take actions in one tool when something happens in another. For example, when a team member updates a contact in Quickbase, a message is automatically posted to the group Slack channel.
Using a visual interface, you can design pipelines that specify what and how data flows between apps. You can build complex pipelines that:
Span many tools
Have many steps in them
Schedule pipelines to run at selected intervals
You can also have a multi-part workflow that strings many pipelines together, where one pipeline triggers another in succession.
While Quickbase Pipelines is part of Quickbase, you do not need to have a Quickbase app as part of your workflow. You can create pipelines between any two supported channels.
