Changing the fields being pulled in an already existing Quickbase connection between tables from different apps?

  • 1.  Changing the fields being pulled in an already existing Quickbase connection between tables from different apps?

    In one application, I have a table that is pulling data from a separate application using a Quickbase Connection.  This connection was initially set up to pull certain fields, but now I need to change which fields are being pulled.  I do not see a way to edit the list of fields being pulled (you can change the filter, and the refresh settings, but not the actual fields from what I can see).  Does anyone know how this can be done without deleting the entire table and making a new one from scratch?

    Go to the table and create new fields. It will ask you if you want to create it from scratch or using the connection. Select connection and there you'll see all the fields.

    You don't do it through the connection (after the initial set up)

    You should have the option to add fields, and it will ask if its a native field or via the connection.
