Planning a Database with Filemaker

Planning a Database with Filemaker | Filemaker (database use) | Scoop.it

Whether you are planning a Filemaker database or not poor planning results in time-wasting throughout all phases of development and often leads to an unusable database.

 

Parts might work, but it could take longer to do the job using the database than it did to do it manually – and the database might provide less accurate results to boot.

 

Don’t let this happen the following guide is meant just as a starting point and is aimed to give the reader a nudge in the right direction.

Didier Daglinckx's curator insight, July 30, 2013 3:23 AM

This web site and the coding standards presented here are for developers using the FileMaker Pro database software application.

They are maintained and documented by a core group of contributors familiar with developing FileMaker Pro applications.

 

There are two primary aspects covered on this site.

 

The first is a Coding Style Guide and the second is Best Practices.

 

The information provided is being cultivated in order to facilitate "clean reading" and well functioning FileMaker solutions.

Please note that this site is not attempting to promote a solution "framework".

While we do provide a starter file, the use of the documented best practices is obviously voluntary to the extent which it will benefit anyone who is able to reference the documentation maintained on this site.

GoMaps is an unlocked template for FileMaker Go that lets you add Google Map views to your mobile solutions.

Taking a list of your records as input you can now show that found set on a map within your FMGo solution.

 

You can even customize the map’s pin colors and the popover details that show when you click on a pin in the map.

Buttons within the map can run scripts in your FileMaker Go file, such a jumping to a record in form view, or marking a record complete.

GoMaps lets the map feel like just another "view" in your solution:

 

Form View
List View
and now, Map View.

Filemaker Pro 12 two portals

A little Filemaker Pro 12 tutorial showing the technique to put two portals on a layout where you can select a record in the first portal and then see records from another table related to the selected record.
Sounds complicated but just think: "3 levels of related data."

Or in other words:


A client can have multiple billings. And each billing can have multiple deposits.
We want to be able to select a billing and see the deposits related to that billing.

Didier Daglinckx's curator insight, July 29, 2013 11:51 AM

I thought it might be more intuitive to display all my Tasks in a calendar view instead of looking at them in a list or a portal.

So I found a Javascript driven HTML calendar and emulated the HTML required within my FileMaker calcs.

So one FileMaker calculation results in the fully formatted HTML required to display my events in a dynamic calendar.
