Second Use Connects FileMaker to WordPress with BrilliantSync

...

Like many companies that use FileMaker, Second Use does their own development.

LuminFire took their solution to the next level by utilizing BrilliantSync to allow the FileMaker database and their WordPress website to communicate with one another.

 

BrilliantSync works as a data translator and bi-directional or two way sync engine.


BrilliantSync identifies differential changes that have been made since the last sync in the FileMaker database and automatically imports them into the website as usable WordPress objects.

This includes inventory items, photos, price changes, store location, etc.
BrilliantSync also pushes changes from the WordPress website back to FileMaker. For example, if a customer requests an item pick-up or registers via a form on the website, FileMaker syncs that information automatically in the background.

The Story of Billy Pass - Part One | FileMaker DevCon 2018 Follow-up

The Story of Billy Pass - Part One | FileMaker DevCon 2018 Follow-up | Learning FileMaker | Scoop.it

At this year’s DevCon in Dallas, TX, I presented a session on FileMaker and IoT (Internet of Things); in preparing for it I settled on this definition of IoT:

"The Internet of Things is the integration of people, processes and technology with connectable devices and sensors to enable remote monitoring, status, manipulation, and evaluation of trends of such devices...”

— Peter T. Lewis, 1985


Based on that definition and the highlighted core elements, I split up the DevCon session into two parts:


Collecting sensor data and sending it to FileMaker Server through the Data API; and 

Manipulate the environment by driving motors based on data retrieved from FileMaker Server.

Document Approval and Version Control in Complete | FileMaker

Document Approval and Version Control in  Complete | FileMaker | Learning FileMaker | Scoop.it
SeedCode’s Ann Kiser has added a version management component to SeedCode Complete as part of a custom project she’s working on.

Complete comes with a built-in audit log, but document versioning goes further by preserving all previous iterations of an attached file and tying that to an approval process so you can know which versions are available for use.

This is part of a thorough customization Ann is doing with Mark Thomas for Okamoto Corporation, the largest sock manufacturer in Japan. (We love manufacturing projects at SeedCode!)

The solution runs in both Japanese and English, and Splash, Inc. is helping with the localization.

Connect FileMaker to Cloud Storage with fmFlare

Connect FileMaker to Cloud Storage with fmFlare | Learning FileMaker | Scoop.it

Your FileMaker data file has reached 9 GB!

You’re storing lots of large images and documents in container fields and it’s getting harder to backup and restore. 
You’re also risking database corruption in transferring such a large file. What’s the best way to fix this?

You can use externally stored container fields.

That solves part of the problem of getting the actual file out of the main database file…but it is still time consuming to backup and transfer.

Why Use FileMaker Instead of an Out-of-the-Box CRM Solution

Why Use FileMaker Instead of an Out-of-the-Box CRM Solution | Learning FileMaker | Scoop.it
Why Use FileMaker® Instead of an Out-of-the-Box CRM Solution

If you’re looking for a CRM solution to improve your company’s processes and productivity, you’re spoiled for choice.

Capterra, a site that reviews software, lists over 400 products under the CRM category.

And Gartner reported that in 2017, worldwide customer relationship management (CRM) software revenue overtook the previous leader, database management systems (DBMSs), making CRM the largest of all software markets.

So many choices can lead to frustration.

Not all CRMs will have all the features you need, many are expensive to maintain, and most are not fully customizable without a hefty investment in custom programming.

How do you know which one is right for your business?

Rather than trying to find the needle in the haystack only to discover that it lacks an essential feature that you need down the road, consider using FileMaker to create a custom CRM solution that’s specifically designed for your company and its operations. Here’s why the FileMaker platform is ideal for CRMs for many organizations.

Form Letters in Browse | The Philosophy of FileMaker

Form Letters in Browse | The Philosophy of FileMaker | Learning FileMaker | Scoop.it
Empowering users of your solution to create their own form letters is life-changing.

 

No longer do they have to contact the developer, explain their needs and go through a back-and-forth testing stage.

The developer just designs a single interface that allows the user to create, save, edit and delete their own form letters.

It's really not that hard to program either.

You just need some global fields, a calculation and a couple of scripts for the foundation of this technique.

 

This approach seems like less income for the developer but that's shortsighted.

 

I always say happy clients equal more business!

Automate Electronic Document Signing with FileMaker and DocuSign

Automate Electronic Document Signing with FileMaker and DocuSign | Learning FileMaker | Scoop.it

For many years we’ve (Databuzz) helped business both large and small with their workflow challenges, and one of the most common issues we see is managing the distribution and signing of standard business documents such as contracts, employee agreements, quotes and proposals.

The solutions to these problems vary depending on a number of factors, including the type of document to be signed, the number of recipients, volume of documents and the location of recipients.

Over the past few years we’ve helped a number of customers integrate with DocuSign, one of the most popular electronic signature platforms. 

DocuSign helps organisations connect and automate how they prepare, sign, act-on, and manage agreements and allows users to sign electronically on practically any device, from almost anywhere, at any time.
