Replacing Forms and Status Gauge Demo | iSolutions, Inc. - Filemaker

Replacing Forms and Status Gauge Demo | iSolutions, Inc. - Filemaker | All things Filemaker  Go | Scoop.it

n this demo we show an example of using the FileMaker Go to replace a paper form.

 

In this case, a paper form used to track and report fire department training. Instead of filling out a paper form and faxing it over to the Battalion Chief who then has to manually count up all the hours..

we make the form digital and have it sync back to the database (a FileMaker database or an ESS connected non-FileMaker data source).

 

We use HTML5 and Javascript in a Web Viewer to display each station’s total hours of completed training in a Gauge view.

Because the Gauge is driven by an unstored FileMaker calculation, it updates immediately as each form is completed.

FileMaker Portal Sorting That Doesn’t Suck™
May 4, 2011FileMaker
I am working on a FileMaker project that uses a “home” layout featuring a portal. The portal’s “parent” is a global text field containing a list of ID numbers. It’s related to an ID field in the child table. Nothing too unusual.

FileMaker Portal Sorting That Doesn’t Suck™
May 4, 2011FileMaker
I am working on a FileMaker project that uses a “home” layout featuring a portal. The portal’s “parent” is a global text field containing a list of ID numbers. It’s related to an ID field in the child table. Nothing too unusual.

Then I started looking at sorting the portal. One nice thing about a list or table view is that it’s easy to give your users the ability to change the sort order on the fly. A portal’s sort order, though, is “baked in.” There’s really only one way to sort a portal: via the fields you specify in the portal’s Sort options in layout mode.
