Integrating FileMaker and Gmail - Part 1 Sending Mail

Integrating FileMaker and Gmail - Part 1 Sending Mail | Learning FileMaker | Scoop.it

This is the first in a series of articles on using the Gmail API from FileMaker.

 

These examples will all use the native Insert From URL script step so there won’t be any plug-ins required.

In this article, we’re going to look at sending HTML emails.

In future articles, I’ll examine sending large emails (35MB) with multiple attachments, resumable uploading, and managing threads.

Introduction to Modal Dialogs


What is a "modal dialog"?

 

When we talk about dialogs we’re actually talking about windows in the FileMaker sense.

 

They could be a card window, or they could be a regular dialog window, or even a floating window or FileMakers own modal window style.

Modal refers to a window state where the window cannot be dismissed without the user explicitly making a decision that will lead to the closing of that window.

The Philosophy of FileMaker - Conditional Subsummaries

The Philosophy of FileMaker - Conditional Subsummaries | Learning FileMaker | Scoop.it
A tremendous amount of reporting power has been packed into FileMaker Pro with an incredibly easy-to-use and flexible interface. The power and simplicity behind adding and deleting parts to organize your pages almost makes it too easy to create a sophisticated printed report. However, when a subsummary group crosses a page break, the subsummary part content doesn't repeat itself, requiring you to flip back and forth between the pages. During my five year tenure at Claris technical support, this was one of the top ten requested features. Twenty years later and there's still no way to attach a calculation formula to a part much like you can with Access Privileges to create conditional records. At least add a check box to repeat the subsummary part contents at a page break. Until some future upgrade, parts obey one set of rules embedded in the FileMaker code base. For now, your best bet is to employ workarounds for conditionally calculating subsummary content.

Muving, empresa de motosharing a FileMaker user case | Learning FileMaker | Scoop.it

Muving es una empresa de motosharing, con 12 delegaciones en España, y más de 100.000 clientes.

 

A medida que su cartera de clientes crecía, también lo hacía su flota de vehículos, las incidencias de taller, el personal y en general la complejidad de gestión y operaciones.

En seguida vieron que el sistema de trabajo de taller basado en hojas de cálculo no era consistente y fiable, por lo que decidieron incorporar una app personalizada hecha con la Plataforma FileMaker, que les permitiera crecer con todas las garantías, a medida que la demanda de servicio lo hacía, y los requerimientos aumentaban.

FileMaker Cloud - What does it do and is it right for me?

FileMaker Cloud - What does it do and is it right for me? | Learning FileMaker | Scoop.it

FileMaker Cloud - What does it do and is it right for me?

FileMaker Cloud has been around for just over a year now, since late 2016. It was created by FileMaker Inc as an alternative to running a FileMaker Server (on a Mac or PC) on your premises.


What is it exactly?

FileMaker Cloud is really a UNIX machine running in Amazon’s data centres that is dedicated to hosting your databases.

It runs a version of FileMaker Server for UNIX that has been especially written for FileMaker Cloud.

You don’t have to worry about the machine that it runs on, you just know that it is dedicated to your organisation, and no-one else will have access to the data.

Limiting Field Access | ISO FileMaker Magazine - video

Limiting Field Access | ISO FileMaker Magazine - video | Learning FileMaker | Scoop.it

These are often asked questions regarding setting up a new FileMaker database system.

"How can I limit when the user can enter data into the field?"

Or, the alternative, "Once the user enters data, how can I make sure they don't change it unless I want them to?"

 

Both of these types of questions can be answered using a variety of methods.

 

The core to understanding their answers is that there's really only only two methods for limiting field access.

One is controlling the display of the field and the other is truly limiting access to the field data itself.

 

Using the knowledge in this video you should be able to come up with a method which fits your exact situation.

The video walks through the use of the various options which FileMaker provides for limiting access to a field.

If you'd like to know which options you should use to control access, then give this video a view.
