Add Simple Logging to your FileMaker Application

Tags : 

FileMakerAcademy.com presents Matt Navarre discussing App.Works’ new free downloadable module fmLog.

Tuesday, September 27th | 2:00 pm ET | Register Now! 

Who is using your database, and for how long? Which layouts and scripts are being used, and which aren’t? How do you know when a record was deleted or modified?

When we start working with new customers on an existing database, they almost never have a logging system in place. Why is this? Most likely it’s because logging is perceived as complex, slow and unnecessary. But it doesn’t have to be.

Join FM Academy and Matt Navarre, Founder of AppWorks, as we break down the mystery of logging and demonstrate how you can use fmLog to add a simple, yet effective system to your existing FileMaker applications.

During this webinar we’ll discuss:

  • Why you should have a logging system in place
  • Tracking Who / Where / Why / When / How
  • The many features of fmLog and why it’s the right tool for the job
  • How to integrate fmLog into your existing system in just minutes

Who should attend this webinar?

  • FileMaker Developers and Users
  • FileMaker Administrators

Button Bar Techniques! Part 2

Tags : 

By David J. Weiner

In our first blog post on the topic of FileMaker 14 button bar techniques, I outlined why we love them so much (calculated labels!), and the main reason they’re so useful (calculated labels!). In our second post on Button Bar Techniques, I delve into the first of several actual tricks we use them for. And, as I looked over some of the examples that I’ll be explaining, it occurred to me that one thing that these techniques all have in common is that the formatting of the button bars is typically invisible — entirely, or partially.

Automatically Perform Script on Server

Automatically Perform Script on Server
By David Weiner

The ability of FileMaker Pro 13 and 14 to perform a script on the server instead of locally on the client’s machine is a huge potential boon for productivity. Tasks for which a user might otherwise have to wait to complete can be accomplished in the background without holding them up. Performing certain scripted tasks on the server is also much, much faster in many cases. So, it’s nice to perform a script on the server whenever you can.
