Prospection : économiser 10h de travail par semaine, c’est désormais possible !


Qui n’a jamais rêvé d’un job dans lequel on ne travaillerait que sur ce que l’on aime?

Dans lequel on pourrait se concentrer uniquement sur les tâches qui importent vraiment et qui créent de la valeur ?

 

Ceux d’entre vous qui ont lu “La semaine de 4 heures” de Tim Ferriss verront immédiatement à quoi je fais allusion : optimiser son temps de travail pour ne se concentrer que sur l’essentiel.


Aujourd’hui Dropcontact vous le permet !


Les interactions entre les gens n’ont jamais été aussi immédiates, les moyens de communication et les outils sont toujours plus nombreux.

Pourtant la qualité des données demeure, elle, très médiocre.

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.

The Philosophy of FileMaker - Seventeen is Prime (+videos)

The Philosophy of FileMaker - Seventeen is Prime (+videos) | Learning FileMaker | Scoop.it
Last year was sweet sixteen.

This year is prime seventeen.

That's the best title I could come up with after Googling the number seventeen.

 

Not much out there for this number.

 

While seventeen is a prime number, prime can also describe the new FileMaker 17, adding features that will change the way you develop your FileMaker solutions.

 

Seriously!

 

Also, I'm going to focus on desktop enhancements but I'm sure there are many bloggers out there who will talk at length about FileMaker Go and FileMaker Server enhancements, of which there are many.

FileMaker 17: Now YOU Get Advanced, and YOU Get Advanced…

FileMaker 17: Now YOU Get Advanced, and YOU Get Advanced… | Learning FileMaker | Scoop.it

Most regular FileMaker users access their custom apps via a product called FileMaker Pro.

The folks who make those custom apps use FileMaker Pro Advanced.

You could create a nice custom app in FileMaker Pro, but doing so is akin to hauling lumber home in the trunk of a Pontiac G6 sedan.

You can get the job done, but it’s really not the right tool for the job. FileMaker Pro Advanced often carried a $200+ premium over regular old FileMaker Pro.

Key features exclusive to Pro Advanced include:

  • Developer Utilities – for creating, customizing, and deploying runtime solutions and encrypting database files.
  • Database Design Report feature – for publishing comprehensive documentation on structures or schemas of databases.
  • Script Debugger – for systematic testing and debugging of FileMaker scripts.
  • Data Viewer – for monitoring fields, variables, and calculations.
  • Custom Menus feature – for creating customized menus for a solution.
  • Custom Functions utility – for creating custom functions for use anywhere within the solution.
  • Copying field schemas or table schemas, and importing table schemas to consolidate tables from a multifile solution into one file.
  • Copying and pasting layout themes.

With the advent of FileMaker 17, all of these features are now part of the desktop app, entitled FileMaker Pro Advanced.
