FileMaker Go Pizza Counter for iPad | Cimbura.com, Inc. Tech

FileMaker Go Pizza Counter for iPad | Cimbura.com, Inc. Tech | Learning Filemaker | Scoop.it

One of the great things about FileMaker is it’s ability to quickly create a simple but useful solution.

Our local FileMaker Developer Group in the Twin Cities (FMPUG-MN) has monthly meetings at Davanni’s Pizza.

 

With up to 30 people in attendance on a regular basis, it’s a challenge to order the right amount of pizza and the kinds people want the most.

 

So…

I spent some time putting together fmPizzaCount for the iPad.


It takes the most popular pizza choice options and allows you to pass around an iPad before the meeting so everyone can order exactly the slices they want.

It summarizes how many pizzas you need to order at the bottom (assuming 8 slices/large pizza).

You could easily modify it to do other things.


That’s the power of FileMaker.

You’re Swamped…

… but you still need custom software.



One of the biggest challenges of creating a custom database is gaining access to the resources (read: team’s time) needed for the developers to understand the scope of the project.

 

Getting a solution started comes to a complete halt when we cannot partner with a customer to best determine the specific needs for your project.

 

Many people are simply too busy to invest the time.

Send SMS easily from FileMaker 13 | Design for FileMaker Pro developers | Learning Filemaker | Scoop.it

Learn how to send text messages from FileMaker using the FileMaker 13 httpspost function combined with Twilio.

 

 

I’m happy to welcome our first guest post!


It’s from Jeff England, a FileMaker developer and owner of Neb’s Fun World, an indoor amusement park located in Oshawa, Ontario, Canada.


This article is about how redesigning an existing process can both enhance the user’s experience and save money at the same time.

Using the new httpspost function in FileMaker 13, combined with Twilio, he’s now sending information-rich text messages directly from FileMaker, and will show you how, too.


It’s a good lesson that creatively examining your existing functions in light of new features can yield great results.

FileMaker – Diseñemos un programa para nuestros iPad y iPhone : Louesfera

FileMaker – Diseñemos un programa para nuestros iPad y iPhone : Louesfera | Learning Filemaker | Scoop.it

Tras más de 15 vídeos sobre FileMaker y tras un año desarrollándolos, ¡como pasa el tiempo!, hemos ido repasando, en todos ellos, muchas de las características de esta grandísima herramienta multiplataforma, todas ellas desarrolladas sobre un programa de facturación de escritorio y es el momento de dar un giro que muchos nos estáis demandando.

 

 

Vamos a continuar creando vídeos y enseñando como funciona FileMaker pero esta vez nos adentraremos en un programa para poder utilizarlo en vuestros iPads y iPhones.

 

Mimaremos el diseño para que se adapte perfectamente a nuestros dispositivos móviles, para que sea fácil usarlo con nuestros queridísimos dedos.

Y le daremos esa funcionalidad que se espera de un buen programa creado con FileMaker, como siempre, sin escribir una sola línea de código y pensando, no solo en el usuario doméstico, sino también en el usuario profesional que pretende aprovechar esta herramienta en su negocio.
