FileMaker 17 Add On Tables | YouTube

In this video, we take a deep dive to explore the new FileMaker 17 feature called "Add-On Table" (Add On Tables).

 

Using FileMaker 17 Pro Advanced, we look at how these objects are constructed for us saving time on building FileMaker schema as this tool adjusts FileMaker tables, relationships, value lists, scripts and in some cases, layouts too!.

 

It creates FileMaker buttons, tooltips, and even adds the script parameters when necessary.

Also, we explore a bit of "magic" on how FileMaker decides what qualifies as a primary key ID field versus one that doesn't.

If you've wanted to know more about this one feature in better detail, have a look.

Learn FileMaker Like a Boss

Learn FileMaker Like a Boss | Learning FileMaker | Scoop.it
Many of us FileMaker developers stumbled into the platform. We discovered it one day on our computer or were given a copy of it. We found FileMaker to be useful to rapidly develop a custom app for our personal or business needs, and so we invested time into learning it. Our evenings and weekends were spent on such places as lynda.com, youtube.com, the FileMaker Community, and other places where we could begin to understand how to use the program.

Along the way we picked up techniques that may or may not be the best technique for a given situation. We also may not have become aware of all the tools a developer has to better develop, test, and analyze.

If that is you, stay tuned. In this series of posts, we will explore what it means to learn FileMaker like a boss as we develop the techniques and flesh out mindsets we all should have.

Data API breaking down barriers and creating new business models | YouTube - FileMaker

In today’s business landscape, more companies are plugging into the API (Application Programming Interfaces) economy, resulting in new streamlined business models amongst diverse platforms, apps, and services.

Imagine having your custom app tap into Google, SalesForce, Stripe, MailChimp, or eBay — there’s literally thousands of possibilities.

Recently released with FileMaker 16, the FileMaker Data API offers a new way to natively connect to and easily exchange information with other data sources increasing the value of your FileMaker custom apps.

In this presentation (35'36") led by FileMaker integration specialist, Cris Ippolite from iSolutions, you’ll get a brief tour of just a few of the thousands of API integrations that are possible with the FileMaker Platform.

You will see how you can setup your own FileMaker API and how easy it is to combine features and data from other applications into your custom apps.

FileMaker 17 Release, Free Tools, FileMaker Training | Learning FileMaker | Scoop.it

Check out ProductiveComputing free tools for FileMaker 17


There is a lot to talk about with the release of FileMaker 17.

But first and foremost we'd like to draw your attention to two new, free tools we've created for FileMaker 17. 

Our first tool is the FM Data Migration Assistant - working alongside FileMaker’s own FM Data Migration tool, our Assistant makes it sinfully easy to migrate data from one FileMaker file to another - and it's free. Check out the video below for more information on how you can get this tool. 

Second, to help you maneuver around the new changes introduced with FileMaker Server 17, we've created another free tool called the FM Server Manager.

This tool demonstrates how you can use FileMaker Server’s new Admin API functionality to manage your server, schedule backups, query for user information and more.

Check out our blog below for more information on this free tool. 

Both of these tools are available to you via our new Productive Computing University and come complete with a complimentary training course to help you better understand how they work and how you can use them. 

In addition to these tools, our CEO, Marc, has created a series of videos discussing the new features in FileMaker 17. We'll be releasing these videos in the coming days and we invite you to subscribe to our Youtube channel, so you don't miss an update.

ccBegin | a (FileMaker) starter solution - YouTube

Cleveland Consulting a long time FileMaker Platinum firm and product developer has just released their first in a series of starter solutions designed to fit the gap between FileMaker's sample solutions and the starter solutions that other firms are offering.

 

As long time software developers, we have always believed in the benefit that comes from custom development, but there are times when you want to start with something that has just enough features where you aren't rebuilding the common architecture from scratch.
 
That is where ccBegin comes in.
 
We at Cleveland Consulting believe that a starter solution can get your project going, and provide a great foundation without bringing any features you will need to turn off or code around.
We have been using ccBegin internally for years and have decided to release it to the public

 

ccBegin is sold as a site license.
No per user costs and the product is completely unlocked.
That means you buy it once for your use and don't need to pay per year or per user.
That keeps your cost low and purchasing decision easy.
