We can help you integrate with other apps, streamline your work processes, identify your hosting needs, implement security best practices, and more! You need a Workplace Integration Platform when you're tired of trying to fit your business model around your software, you're spending more time handling your data than your product, you crave efficiency and accuracy, your long-term goals seem unattainable in your current setup, you need to be in two (or more) places at once,
you're concerned about security, or when you want personalized reports, not one-size-fits-most reports.
FileMaker’s built-in security features for accounts and privilege sets are flexible and robust enough to meet almost any need. There are times, however, when a particular scripted process needs to override an individual’s security access in order to complete its task. In most cases, the option to ‘Grant Full Access Privileges’ to individual scripts has met this need. (Note: this option should still be used sparingly and only when absolutely necessary.) There is, however, an instance where this doesn’t work as expected, and that’s with data separated apps.

Our favorite time in Portland is here! The Rose Festival, Pride Week, Fleet Week, Portland Craft Beer Festival, The Blues Festival and Bridge Pedal are just a few of our favorites, but with each of them comes traffic on both land and water. While lots of apps can help with traffic navigation, most can’t account for bridge lifts, leaving users with no idea how long they’ll be stuck in traffic. (Remember, turning off your engine reduces pollution and helps keep our city beautiful!)
FileMaker Server added a new feature to its existing tools to ensure the integrity of its hosted databases. After checking files at startup, and before opening any database, if inconsistencies are found due to abnormal closing of files (i.e. power failure or crash), FileMaker Server now uses the restoration log feature to restore files to their last consistent state.
