How to Export Apple Mac Address Book Contacts to Excel or CSV | FileMaker tip

How to Export Apple Mac Address Book Contacts to Excel or CSV | FileMaker tip | Learning FileMaker | Scoop.it
Apple’s Contacts app does not allow you to export your data to a CSV or Excel file.

 

But there’s an app for that: Export Address Book.


Since 2006, Export Address Book is chosen by many Mac users for exporting contacts from your local + iCloud-synced address books directly into an Excel file and other formats like CSV, tab-delimited text, XML+XSLT and customizable vCards.

It supports contact properties with custom labels and comes with predefined export templates for common applications such as Outlook for Windows or Gmail. You can also create your own templates.

Learn how to create a Filemaker system that can be used for any reservation system where items are used for periods of time.

 

...

 

In this Udemy course we will learn to create a Filemaker system used for making reservations and booking items within a date range. In this example we will be using a hotel room as an example but this can equally be used for car rental, equipment rental, studio rental, library lending. In other words any system where you have items that are in use for specific periods of time.

These free rooms can them immediately be booked or guests that walk in can immediately check in.

Geocoding and Mapping Module for FileMaker Pro | MSN Media

Geocoding and Mapping Module for FileMaker Pro | MSN Media | Learning FileMaker | Scoop.it
In the past few months we've had several projects that needed some basic mapping functions for FileMaker Go on iPad, and for one reason or another, never really made anything that was easily replicable.

Realizing that we were more than likely going to need to do this again, we thought it was time to find a module of some sort that we could easily plug in as needed.

Our aim was to have a simple way to take a group of addresses and create a map using the Google API in FileMaker, and that was all.

Nothing fancy - just simple, elegant, and (ideally) ready-to-go out of the box.

Take control of your e-mail marketing with FileMaker 360Works CloudMail | FM Academy Webinar

April 21st – Take control of your e-mail marketing with 360Works CloudMail


Join Jesse Barnum for a webinar on Tuesday, April 21st. Register Now!
Managing an e-mail marketing list in FileMaker has always been a challenging problem. When sending e-mails to your marketing list directly from FileMaker, care must be taken avoid exceeding e-mail sending limits from your ISP. In addition, you receive little or no feedback about who received your messages. In addition, for legal compliance, you must offer automated unsubscribe links, which is not simple to do. While using a dedicated e-mail sending service may solve these problems, it is an expensive alternative, requires constant importing and exporting, is not easy to automate, and gives you very little ability to customize your messages.

FileMaker Paperless Inspection System : Market Refrigeration Specialists | Case Study - AngelCityData

FileMaker Paperless Inspection System : Market Refrigeration Specialists | Case Study - AngelCityData | Learning FileMaker | Scoop.it
MARKET REFRIGERATION SPECIALISTS


Refrigeration installation and service company Market Refrigeration Specialists uses a paperless inspection system on their iPads.

Angel City Data designed a FileMaker  system to process work orders, time cards, and inspections in real time, improving billing cycles, increasing productivity and dramatically reducing paper costs.


Market Refrigeration Specialists installs and services commercial refrigeration and HVAC systems for big box retailers such as WalMart, Target, Whole Foods, Vons and Sprouts.

It’s their job to ensure that food items contained in refrigeration and freezer units stay cold and keep food safe.


Old, paper-based forms made tracking work orders, time cards and inspections slow and inefficient.

Working with Angel City Data, the company now uses a custom FileMaker solution that helps field technicians enter forms in real time with iPads.

 

This has resulted in faster billing cycles, fewer inspection errors and a huge reduction in paper costs.
