Connect to QuickApp
Immediately after installing QuickApp Client, you are required to create a connection with your account info. This allows you to develop/access QuickApp applications, and download automatic updates for QuickApp Client. To connect to QuickApp, you need the account information you provided when you signed up and the api-key that we send to your e-mail address. For more information on this process, please watch the following video.
Access the Apps you are allowed
You can access the allowed apps from QuickApp Namespaces. To be able to access the Namespaces, Applications, and other QuickApp objects, you must have certain permissions. In Quickapp, permissions can be regulated only by QuickApp Admin and Security Admin. Therefore, you must have these privileges before you can view a QuickApp application on a Namespace. If you encounter viewing or opening any application, please ask your admin or security admin for permission.
QuickApp Applications need data sources to read and/or write data. Saving data in QuickApp means processing it into the database. This is done with the Save button in the lower right corner of your app. However, in applications designed as auto-save, the data is automatically saved to the database as soon as it is entered into the cell. Excel is just an interface for QuickApp, so there is no need to save the file.
If any database is used in your application, you must have some permissions to access it. Permission processes are probably managed by an IT/BI/Database Administrator in your organization. If you have any problems reading or writing data in your application, please contact your database administrator for database access permission.
