How Important Is User Experience? 9 Things You Need To Know About UX | FileMaker UI tip

How Important Is User Experience? 9 Things You Need To Know About UX | FileMaker UI tip | Learning FileMaker | Scoop.it

UX is based on 200 years of scientific knowledge, 30 years of industry best practices and specifically applied research. – @mashable

 

User experience (ux) is an emerging practice that sits at the intersection of behavioral science, web (app) development, and domain-specific knowledge.

 

It’s a human-centric approach to understanding how people engage with technology, and how to build the best web (user) experiences possible.

Will 2015 be the year of the custom business solution? | FileMaker business tip

Will 2015 be the year of the custom business solution? | FileMaker business tip | Learning FileMaker | Scoop.it
People do love their apps. “People” includes your employees, contractors, business partners and senior managers.

They love the convenience, the simplicity and the focus – and never being away from “their” data. 

Smart businesses are beginning to realise the value of mobile business solutions – situational, lightweight applications that simplify and mobilise functions – for saving paper, boosting productivity, and extending data and workflows beyond the confines of the traditional office.

As of July 2014, mobile device users could choose from more than 2.5 million downloadable third-party apps. 

Business apps were the third-most popular category on the Apple App Store in September 2014, after games and education.

But what if none of those apps is your app; exactly the right form, fit and functionality for your business?

FileMaker 14 fait sa tournée française

FileMaker 14 fait sa tournée française | Learning FileMaker | Scoop.it
Il y a deux semaines sortait FileMaker 14, la nouvelle version du gestionnaire de base de données d’Apple.

Avec elle, de nombreuses améliorations comme une automatisation plus poussée et plus ergonomique, un accès repensé sur navigateur mobile, un design retouché, l’arrivée d’un centre de lancement cohérent entre les plates-formes supportées, notamment.

Tant de nouveautés mérite quelques explications et l’éditeur organise, essentiellement en juin et également septembre, une tournée de présentation en France, entièrement gratuite. Paris, Lyon, Bordeaux, Marseille, Strasbourg, Lille ou Bruxelles figurent au menu.

 

La thématique de ces réunions tourne évidemment autour des nouveautés de la version 14 : « vous ferez partie d’un groupe de personnes partageant les mêmes idées et cherchant à optimiser leur activité. Vous découvrirez au travers d’exemples réels les nouvelles fonctionnalités de FileMaker 14 suivantes »

Automating Webcam Photo Capture within FileMaker (Windows)

Automating Webcam Photo Capture within FileMaker (Windows) | Learning FileMaker | Scoop.it
OK folks, here is a hack for you.

The Challenge: Capturing images from a web cam into FileMaker on Windows.

I was able to achieve this previously on a Mac using AppleScript, but there is no similar easy inter-application scripting language on Windows. FileMaker Go on mobile has the ability to grab photos right from the camera on an iPhone or iPad.

Most PCs these days have a webcam plugged in and many laptops have built-in cameras, but so far FileMaker Inc., does not directly support the capability of taking photos in its desktop applications.

Hopefully this feature will be added going forward.

In the meantime, this hack provides a workaround.

FileMaker’s Multilingual Capabilities | DocuWrx

FileMaker’s Multilingual Capabilities | DocuWrx | Learning FileMaker | Scoop.it
The Economist published a special report “From Minor to Major: America’s Hispanics” on March 14th, 2015, about a new demographic revolution: “One American in six is now Hispanic, up from a small minority two generations ago.

By mid-century it will be more than one in four.” The US workforce composition as well as consumer composition is changing.

There are currently 22 million English-speaking consumers whereas there are 24 million Spanish-speaking consumers in the US. (http://www.economist.com/news/special-report/21645996-one-american-six-now-hispanic-up-small-minority-two-generations-ago)  

 

Given this context, a multilingual software is becoming essential for US businesses.

A software’s multilingual capabilities:

Allow adaption to the needs of this new demographic trend,
Make internal employer-employee and employee-employee communication easier and clearer,
Enable capture of new markets inside and outside the US, and hence
Support products/services’ competitiveness

FileMaker Navigation Parts | Learning FileMaker | Scoop.it
With its newest release, FileMaker has given developers the opportunity to create solutions with a refined, polished look, while simultaneously providing new, much-needed functionality.

One way it does this is through two new layout parts, called “Top Navigation” and “Bottom Navigation”, providing layout parts that can be fixed to the top and bottom of the screen and parts that don’t move when scrolling or zooming.

Optimized Display Images | ISO FileMaker Magazine (By subscription)

For newer FileMaker developers it's easy to exclaim "Oh, cool, FileMaker takes care of that for me.Look, it reduces the image to fit my container." Coupled with the false assumption that what you see is optimized to the ideal resolution will give you nothing but a SLOW FileMaker solution.

This video focuses on the first part of a two part equation when it comes to showing images within your layouts.

Towards the end of the video you'll find an explanation of how to approach a Separation based local caching model of showing solution images.

Using FileMaker 14 WebDirect for Registration or Creating a Survey | FileMaker 14 - YouTube (8'47")

Important Note: WebDirect is for limited access... with limited numbers of users. If you have 10...or maybe 15 users who might sign up at one time... then WebDirect might be OK for you use.

This is light weight *simultaneous* access.

If you are using FileMaker Server 14...then you can easily setup a Survey or Registration web page that fills information directly into your FileMaker database... without any programming.

The trick is to get the browser to "auto-login" to a WebDirect page.

This video will walk you through the process of setting this up.

This video also shows you how to hide the toolbar and the menu bar...so the user cannot "see" they are in FileMaker.

 

Very Cool!!!
