We are delighted to announce that today we are rolling out Baserow 1.12, meaning it’s time we evaluate all the work that has been done in the past month. Form survey mode, multiple collaborators field type, file field support in the form view, and the possibility to add new rows directly from the row select modal — keep on reading if you’re curious about everything new at Baserow.
In the Baserow forms, you can now choose to show all questions at once, using a traditional mode, or one question at a time with the newly released survey mode. You can switch between modes and work with the one that gets more and better results for you.
Meet a new field type — multiple collaborators. Assign collaborators by selecting names from a list of users who are invited to your group. Now, working with friends or colleagues is even easier in Baserow.
While duplicating a field, you can now choose either to duplicate it with or without data. To duplicate a field, you need to click on the arrow next to the field name, select the duplicate field option from the dropdown and put a checker mark if you want it to be duplicated together with data. That’s easy!
From now on, you can create a new row directly from the row select modal. All you need is to click the ‘+’ button while choosing a relationship in the link to table field — that’s it. Your convenience is our priority!
We enabled the file field type in the form view, so now it is possible to attach one or more files while filling out the form.
Let’s take a few minutes to thank all our community contributors.

We are also grateful to Marc Seitz for fixing the documentation on how to run the dev environment of Baserow, and for making a video review on how to contribute to Baserow with a code. Josh Soref did a bunch of spelling fixes and we are incredibly thankful for his hard work on this.

On August 11th, we did the first AMA — Ask Me Anything event — with Bram Wiepjes and Olivier Maes, where the Baserow co-founders were answering all the Baserow-related questions in real-time. In case you missed the event, make sure to check the recap article.
This month our co-founder Bram Wiepjes was invited to do another AMA in cooperation with Indie Hackers. Bram was answering all questions related to open source and what is the Baserow experience growing as an open-source project. Check the session here, and you can still ask your questions!
We decided to try out a new initiative — Brainstorm Hours. We ask our community to participate in the brainstorming session and share some thoughts on how we should build the Role Based Access Control feature at Baserow! With this event, we want to have direct collaboration between our community and the team. Make sure to take your part and participate here.
On the 14th of September, we will conduct a joint demo with ToolJet, an open-source low-code platform to build internal tools. In the live stream, we plan to build a customer relationship management (CRM) application using both tools — ToolJet and Baserow. Save the date!
We have a new official integration: Nuclino. You can now easily embed Baserow databases in Nuclino! To embed a database from Baserow in Nuclino, copy the shared link and paste it into the editor of any Nuclino item. This app is enabled by default for everyone and does not require configuration. Details are here.
isortsettings to sort python imports.
user_permanently_deletedwere added to track user changes.
list_groupsendpoint now also returns the list of all group users for each group.
Soon we’ll release 1.12.1 with more templates, link and button formula functions, rich preview of additional import, public Kanban view sharing, and formula fixes.
In Baserow 1.13 we will add role-based access control, SSO, audit log and signup rules, and more. As always we will continue working on features suggested by the community and fixing bugs.
Do you have questions regarding the new updates? Or anything else? Leave your questions in our official community forum — we’re always happy to answer them!
Today we are releasing 1.12: check out the new form survey mode, work with multiple collaborators field type, duplicate fields with data, file field support in the form view — try out all the new features in Baserow!
