Syncing On-Site Inspections - SeedCode

 

Water Quality Inspections Using iPads, FileMaker 12, and GoZync FullCity Consulting built this solution for a private company tasked with managing water quality in open bodies of water across large parts of two states.

 

FullCity Consulting built this solution for a private company tasked with managing water quality in open bodies of water across large parts of two states.

 

FullCity created their own FileMaker Go files, then used GoZync to sync inspections made offline with their client’s main FileMaker 12 solution.

 

Previously they were managing their workflow (from onsite service reports to state required reporting) on paper and using Access running under Parallels on a single Mac in the owner’s office. FullCity’s Adam Aronson recalls:

 

“When I first visited them there was a stack of service reports on the owner’s desk (2″ high!) that represented 60 days of invoices that had yet to be sent out.

I referred to this as ‘self imposed Net-90′.

Additionally, the information represented on the service reports needed to be aggregated yearly into a specific format for state reporting requirements.

Collecting all of the data and reentering it into Access (for printing the reports) was taking the two owners a ridiculous amount of time.”

Import/Export script on FileMaker Server
Answer ID: 7035

Import/Export script steps are now available for use with FileMaker Server scheduled scripts. Previously, FileMaker Server schedules were not compatible with these script steps. 

NOTE: Import/Export is not compatible with Instant Web Publishing.

FileMaker Server supports the 'Import Records' and 'Export Records' script steps with the following exceptions (due to their greater dependency on the client portion of FileMaker Pro) :

Import Records - File, where the target for the import is 'New Table'
Import Records - Folder
Import Records - Digital Camera

t’s a common scenario.  You’ve got a reservation system of some kind or another and you have a limited number of resources available.  When you add a reservation (for a specific date), you want to be able to only select the resources that are available; in other words, they haven’t already been booked for another reservation on that same date.
This is not a terribly complicated scenario but you may find it a little difficult to get your head around; I certainly did. However, it is a really powerful, and useful, technique that has many different applications so it’s worth making the effort.
So, let’s give it a whirl.
