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.
Today we offer a new minor update to our ever-popular fmMapping Module. If you’re not familiar with it, this is a simple-to-deploy, FileMaker-native module for integrating Google maps with your FileMaker application. It has the ability to map multiple address records on a single Google map, using a webviewer.
The updates today fix a minor bug, provide better documentation of recent changes to Google’s API, and more importantly, remove the need for custom functions. The older version relied on two of them, and they’ve both been replaced with FileMaker 16’s native JSON functions. If you’re running a version of FileMaker earlier than 16, this update is not for you.
You can download the new version HERE, and let us know if you need help deploying it, or if you’re interested in added features.
Note: If you’ve had trouble recently with Google maps being drawn with a darkened background and the words “For development purposes only”, it’s due to changes made by Google:
fmMapping is one of our best-loved modules, and has many cool applications for use. We would love to know how you are integrating this module into your solutions in the comments section!
With the release of FileMaker Pro Advanced 18, full access users can delegate user management to any user. This tool reduces the administrative burden on database administrators, in addition to decreasing the response time when it comes to changes in user accounts. For example, the person(s) conducting employee onboarding/offboarding can now create, edit or delete users. Additionally, someone like an office manager would now be able to reset user passwords instead of sending a request to a database administrator.
Apple released FileMaker Pro Advanced 18 on May 22, 2019. AppWorks delved into FileMaker 18 in search of new functionality, and we were far from disappointed. Read on for our favorite shiny new features and changes in version 18.
FileMaker 18 offers a series of new script steps that add native file creation and manipulation to the developer’s toolkit. The utility of these new script steps will be fully realized once people start using them, but right away I can foresee some great use cases. Write records to a text file for import into another system? Generate an HTML document? Custom local log files? All are possible with these new script steps.
