To create and use a sandbox, first an app admin must activate the feature in App Properties.
Note: This feature is available for specific plans. Check the Quickbase Pricing page for a comparison.
Activating a sandbox
Open the app for which you want to activate a sandbox.
Select Settings, and then select App Properties.
In the Advanced Settings section, select the Enable change management through a dedicated sandbox check box.
Select Save. On the app table bar, a button appears labeling the live app. This button includes a drop down menu where you will manage a sandbox for the app.
Note: "Live" describes the app currently in use. When you click on the arrow, you will see available sandboxes listed. Read Creating a sandbox to learn more.
Note:Apps that have a sandbox activated are only listed once on your My apps page. You open the app and switch between the live app and a sandbox, rather than having a sandbox listed separately on My apps.
Deactivating a sandbox
If you decide not to use a sandbox to manage changes, you can deactivate the feature entirely:
Open the live app for which you want to deactivate (turn off) the sandbox feature.
Click the Live button, and then select Disable sandbox feature.
In the confirmation dialog, click the Yes, Disable button. This will deactivate the feature and delete any sandbox you have started.
