Google Integration: Scaling your business with Quickbase and GSuite

In the ever-present quest to increase productivity across their enterprises, businesses of all sizes are turning to a very familiar name with an ever-expanding suite of products: Google. After seeing how successful small businesses have been integrating the Google suite of products into their workflow, along with Google’s proliferation in business in general, companies on the growth path are now seeking new ways to replicate that success on a larger scale. That’s where Quickbase comes into play.Unknown.jpeg

Logistically speaking, Quickbase and GSuite are a match made in productivity heaven. First, they work very well together because GSuite is a standard productivity package (email, calendar, etc.) and Quickbase is a workflow management tool. Second, because they’re both cloud based, they tend to talk very well to each other. When you pair them, you naturally increase efficiencies. They’re two key strategic systems that deliver synergy for a much larger return versus each individually.

Here are three specific Google integrations Quickbase makes possible. 

  1. Google Drive Quickbase integration. Our QDrive extension lets you create a project record in Quickbase that automatically creates an identical folder in Google Drive for that project. At that point, you can then see all of the associated documents in that folder. You can also upload multiple files at one time, perform offline uploads of documents via your desktop, and do file attachments with no limit to file size or type or number. You can even give people access to documents or ability to upload even if they don’t have access to Quickbase.
  2. Google Calendar Quickbase integration. This integration assists in keeping everyone on the same page by managing all major tasks in Quickbase and letting them show on Google Calendar. It works by letting you sync tasks in Quickbase with your Google Calendar in both directions to keep two systems up-to-date. You can see all tasks, move them, update in real time and more.
  3. Gmail Quickbase integration. This one’s a work in progress, but it promises some really nifty functionality. You can track and see emails in a sales application by contact, perfect for CRM applications, as well as seeing all emails in Quickbase. It will also let you create gmail out of Quickbase and view your Google history.

As Google continues to evolve its GSuite into enterprise applications, our goal will be to continue to support this increasing demand by finding new ways to integrate with Quickbase.
