Creative Tips for using the Web Viewer in FileMaker Pro | FileMaker | Filemaker | Scoop.it
Documentation. Link to a Web page providing user instructions for your customized FileMaker solution. When you change the instructions, your users can see the new content immediately without having to distribute a new version of the solution.Maps. Add a map to a contacts layout. If you update your contact's address, the map will change, too, without taking any other action.Shipping status. Add package tracking to a sales or procurement layout. You can see up-to-date shipment status without leaving FileMaker Pro and without typing.Contacts. Street addresses, e-mails and phone numbers change frequently, so instead of typing them into your FileMaker database, why not simply type in the URL of the contact's Contact Us Web page?Web software integration. Integrate with online versions of QuarkXPress, Power School, Microsoft Office and other Web-enabled applications so that customer information can be viewed from within FileMaker. This is particularly useful in contact centers, where harried agents typically have to juggle multiple interfaces.Exchange rates. Display up-to-the-minute exchange rates so you can calculate prices for your global customers in their currency.Managing research sources. For your research projects-such as articles or purchase decisions-add a Tab Control for each resource source, and then add a Web Viewer on each tab for one-click viewing of Web pages, book references, interviews and more.Preview contents of container fields. Add a Web Viewer to the layout and point it to the file reference, whether it's on your hard drive, the local network or the Internet. You can preview any file format that your operating system browser supports: sound files, videos and animations, images or documents.

Insert From URL - FileMaker's Web Requests

Insert From URL - FileMaker's Web Requests | Filemaker | Scoop.it
FileMaker can make web requests with Insert From URL script step. This article explores what FileMaker actually sends to the target server.

I am interested in connecting FileMaker to various web APIS and I was curious to see how far I could get without a plugin. Many web APIs use POST, as that it the default way to send data to a server. Now that FileMaker supports POST, things are a bit more interesting.
