FileMaker 17: New and Improved Licensing Programs

Tags : 

As a certified FileMaker license reseller, AppWorks is jumping for joy with the new and improved FileMaker License programs! After years of competing acronyms such as AFLT, FLT, AVLA, VLA, ASLA, SBA, etc., FileMaker Inc. has simplified the programs to: User Licensing, Concurrent Connection Licensing and Site Licensing. *phew*

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.
