InCatalog • Xcatalog : Connect your documents to your data and forget manual updating | Learning FileMaker | Scoop.it

Connect your documents to your data and forget manual updating

  • What if you could have a software robot to flawlessly synchronize your documents’ contents with your data in one click?
  • What if you could stop worrying about product prices and descriptions in your documents being up to date with your database or spreadsheet, and vice versa?
  • What if you could synchronize everything (in either direction) in a matter of seconds or minutes?
  • What if you could drag in pre-fab modules from a library, fill in one key, and have the rest of the module fleshed out for you?
  • What if you could get this robot to work hand-in-hand with a building robot, so that after building, your document was fully linked and ready to synchronize?

You can, with InCatalog and Xcatalog, your synchronizing robots.

InCatalog, a plug-in for Adobe InDesign, and Xcatalog, an XTension for QuarkXPress, with their easy-to-use data linker panels, enable you to create transparent links between your documents and your databases or spreadsheets.

Once you have links in place, you can update prices, graphics, or product information with a simple menu invocation—or even change versions or swap languages.

With InCatalog or Xcatalog, you can rest assured—your documents will always reflect your database contents.

Timeline with (FileMaker) web viewer

There are a lot of good-looking and useful Javascript libraries. The good thing is they can be integrated into a web viewer in FileMaker.

It is even possible to interact with the web viewer, display more information or navigate to a certain FileMaker record using the fmp protocol.

A couple of years ago (times goes by..) I wrote about an interactive map of Sweden.


Lately I was in need to show events in a timeline.

It might be made in FileMaker, but it is a lot easier using one of the Javascript libraries easily found on the internet.

Do It Yourself television company manages production using a custom app they built themselves using the FileMaker Platform

 

When it comes to DIY (do it yourself), nobody does it better than Big Table Media. The Sacramento, California-based television production company creates 12 series for cable channels HGTV, The DIY Network, and more recently, the Disney Channel and the Travel Channel.

Their shows include the immensely popular House Crashers, Yard Crashers, Kitchen Crashers, and Disney Holidays. Altogether, they create 156 individual episodes for these 12 shows every year, and they manage the entire post-production process using a custom app, TableTop, that they created themselves using the FileMaker Platform.

 

“We use TableTop for every aspect of post production,” reported Andy Brooks, director of information and digital video technology for Big Table Media.

“From the minute the footage comes in the door to the moment we ship out a completed episode to the network, the FileMaker-based app manages it.”

¡FileMaker 15 compatible con iBeacons!

¡FileMaker 15 compatible con iBeacons! | Learning FileMaker | Scoop.it

¡FileMaker 15 compatible con iBeacons!

 

Descubre la nueva función de cálculo RangeBeacons.

iBeacons es una tecnología de Apple, que permite a las aplicaciones móviles recibir señales de balizas físicas ( beacons) y reaccionar consecuentemente. 

Los Beacons son pequeños dispositivos que usan la tecnología Bluetooth de baja energía y que tienen un rango máximo de unos 100 metros.

Con una red iBeacon, cualquier marca, minorista, app o plataforma podrá conocer exactamente donde se encuentra un cliente en un entorno determinado, y tener la oportunidad de enviar al cliente mensajes contextuales signifificativos y/o anuncios a sus teléfonos inteligentes.

Ejemplo;

un cliente lleva un teléfono inteligente, que detecta iBeacons, entra en los almacenes "Mercadonia".

Cuando la app escucha los iBeacons, el iBeacon comunica datos desde el teléfono inteligente a su servidor, y ejecuta una acción.

Esto podría ser algo tan simple, como un mensaje, "Bienvenido a Mercadonia - compruebe la sección de ofertas en el pasillo 2". 

Si hay varios iBeacons en los almacenes, se puede rastrear su ubicación, y enviar un mesaje más especializado, dependiendo de de su ubiación en tienda. "Ya que está mirando ofertas, los artículos de más de 40€ tienen un descuento del 60%"
