Aviation auditor uses FileMaker to develop safety management app | Kyo Logic, LLC

Aviation auditor uses FileMaker to develop safety management app | Kyo Logic, LLC | Learning FileMaker | Scoop.it
In the corporate aviation industry, operators use safety management systems (SMS) to ensure their compliance with national and international standards.

However, the frequent updates made to those standards make the job of cross-referencing an SMS a time-consuming and complicated one.

Now, thanks to a former corporate pilot and current auditor who used FileMaker to simplify the process, there's an app for that.

Here Be Dragons: A FileMaker Developer's Quest for Another Development Environment

Here Be Dragons: A FileMaker Developer's Quest for Another Development Environment | Learning FileMaker | Scoop.it

I (Tim Dietrich) started looking at development environments. I'm hoping to find a single environment that can meet all of my non-FileMaker-related needs.

 

Here's the wish list:

• Supports multiple targets (OS X and Windows on the desktop, iOS, and possible Android on mobile)
• Powerful and robust programming language
• Provides a comfortable IDE
• Supports rapid application
• Extensible, with a range of extensions already in place

 

Here are some thoughts and observations on three candidates that I'm considering.

FileMaker gives Somerset Levels volunteers a helping hand | YouTube (2'46")

Goodwill, enthusiasm and hard work are qualities that you will find in spades in any disaster recovery organisation.

 

We certainly found this recently when we donned our wellies to see how a volunteer organisation that is using FileMaker in the Somerset Levels, is redefining the way that natural disasters are dealt with on a local level.

Printing PDFs in FileMaker WebDirect | SeedCode + video (4'34")

Printing PDFs in FileMaker WebDirect | SeedCode + video (4'34") | Learning FileMaker | Scoop.it
FileMaker’s WebDirect offers some exciting deployment opportunities. However, not being able to create PDFs or print like we can with Pro and Go is a big limitation. 

For many of us, an invoice may exist in a database, but until it’s represented as a printable document, it’s just not a real invoice.

 

...

Our friend and colleague John Renfrew has been doing some very impressive work bridging this gap between server PDF generation and FileMaker layouts.

We’re looking forward to the final results of his work here, set to be released early 2015 as we think basing PDFs on FileMaker layouts is an important part of the platform for all deployments.

Prototyping helps us to unveil and explore these human needs, opening the door to insightful interaction and more empathetic design solutions.

SQL Picker Window Module For FileMaker | CoreSolutions Software Inc. | Learning FileMaker | Scoop.it
This module provides a FileMaker Pro developer with the layout structure, schema and scripts needed to make a generic but portable picker window.  

 

I use this module as a way to assign a value to foreign key fields in my systems.  

This module makes use of a virtual list table with calculated repeating fields, Execute SQL, and a popup modal window.  

The popup window will be sortable and searchable, and as long as you’re comfortable with FileMaker’s ExecuteSQL function, then you’ll find this a breeze to set up and use.

Rehabstudio’s activation personalizes interactions at Whole Foods by incorporating information and creating an interactive environment through personal electronics.

Upon entering the store, the shopper’s mobile device would recognize they are in a Whole Foods.

It would give the wearer contextual suggestions based on availability, location, and history to give users additional information about staying healthy.  

Creative partner at rehabstudio Tim Rodgers explains, “Wearable devices allow for a hands-free, personalized, and private guided experience in a retail environment.

It’s like having a personal shopper guide you around the store, it knows what the consumer likes, what they might want to try and buy.”
