LaunchIt

AppWorks is happy to share LaunchIt a user friendly file launching module. This FileMaker module gives developers a fast way to share solutions with clients.

It takes time to talk a client through adding the hosted solution to their favorites and going through the steps of typing credentials – especially if the client is prone to typos. The launcher file takes less than a minute to set up, gives the user feedback if it doesn’t work, and doesn’t have the potential for opening security holes in a system.

A fmp url protocol and the open url script tell FileMaker to go to a server and open a file without having to put an external data reference in the launcher file or authorize the launcher in the hosted file. This only passes an open command – no account name or password information to the file. Security is left to the hosted file and comparable to the open command from within FileMaker.

Techniques for Making FileMaker Apps more Intuitive

The FileMaker platform enables us to build software very quickly – far less time than the typical software development cycle.
