(My own client's FileMaker Server can send "script completed" messages but scripts inside the database for months at a time were blocked from sending scripted SMTP Server emails). Make sure encryption is TLA (not SSL).

10 file-sharing options: Dropbox, Google Drive, and more (also useful for Filemaker users)

10 file-sharing options: Dropbox, Google Drive, and more (also useful for Filemaker users) | Filemaker Info | Scoop.it

Sharing files with one or more colleagues can still be a hassle.

 

Anybody who has tried to share a large file with a friend or colleague understands all too well to the problems that are involved.

Email attachments can get rejected, especially if you don't know what the upper limit on a file size is for sender or recipient.

Uploads and downloads can be arbitrarily slow. And the clunkiness of the whole process makes it hard to get real work done.

 

In the bad old days, if you wanted to distribute files that were too hefty for your email to handle, you had few choices.

You could buy some Web-hosting space and use that to distribute files on the fly to your coworkers and collaborators, you could burn a disc or copy the file to a USB drive and drop that in an envelope, or you could use that fabled legacy transport protocol, Sneakernet. Nowadays, however, there's a bevy of free services that offer tons of storage and bandwidth.

FileMaker is famous for being easy to use. That reputation is well-deserved. You can certainly create your own applications to solve business problems, or use one of the Starter Solutions out of the box. If you can use Excel, you can use FileMaker too.

On the other hand, at some point you might find it useful to hire a professional developer or consultant to help build your solution.

FileMaker Pro Addresses Needs of Cloud-Based and In-House Hosting

FileMaker Pro Addresses Needs of Cloud-Based and In-House Hosting | Filemaker Info | Scoop.it

...

some small business owners may be asking, should I choose a Cloud solution? FileMaker’s answer is that its software can be used for Cloud-based sharing of databases.


“Most workgroups within a company typically use a mixture of both cloud-based and locally-shared software solutions,” Ryan Rosenberg, VP of marketing for FileMaker, said.

“Their decision may be based on whether their decision is to invest in their own servers or whether they prefer to pay for a software service. Many FileMaker Pro customer sites share data locally and also use any of the dozens of hosting services available for sharing FileMaker Pro databases.”

Passing Multiple Parameters to Scripts – Advanced : SFR FileMaker Blog

Wouldn’t it be nice if whenever you need a parameter you could just ask for it by name? Lets say that you have a create order script and you want to pass the script the name, street and zip code of the customer. If you were stuck with just the regular old FileMaker functions there ain’t no way that’s happening. But after you are done with this post, you will be able to get the name of your customer with the simple function: GetParameter( "customerName" ).

FM Notify : create and schedule systemwide iOS notifications from within FileMaker Go 12 solutions.

FM Notify is an application designed by Richard Carlton Consulting, Inc. to work with FileMaker Go 12.

 

FM Notify extends the capabilities of FileMaker Go 12 by providing the ability to create and schedule systemwide iOS notifications from within FileMaker Go 12 solutions.

Notifications can be scheduled for specific dates and times, and because the notifications are managed by iOS, the notifications occur even when FileMaker Go 12 is not running.

When creating an iOS systemwide notification, FM Notify also lets FileMaker developers attach a FileMaker URL to the notification so the originating database will be re-opened when the user taps on the notification.

FM Notify works with databases stored locally on the device, as well as those hosted by FileMaker 12 Server.
