Portage Bay FileMaker Demos

Portage Bay FileMaker Demos

The current incarnation of our Blog was first published 6 years ago. During that time we’ve posted a lot of blog articles, included a number that include sample files that demonstrate a variety of techniques and ideas for features in FileMaker.

In one of our previous FileMaker 17 videos on YouTube, I touched briefly on the new “Default Fields” functionality introduced in FileMaker 17. In this post, I’ll be diving more into this feature, explaining how it works and how to customize it for your own use.

Modular Date Range Chooser

Modular Date Range Chooser

Are you looking for a reusable tool to be integrated with your FileMaker solution that provides an easy to use date range chooser popup window? Look no further! Portage Bay has created the Modular Date Range Chooser which can easily be added to your solution, either by copying and pasting the components into your existing solution, or linking the file as an external widget file. I am currently in the process of uploading this to modularfilemaker.org so it will be available to any FileMaker developer.

Introducing the Map Widget

Introducing the Map Widget

We are pleased to announce the release of our Map Widget v.1.0 product. This is a new tool built natively with FileMaker which can be easily integrated into your existing FileMaker solution. The Map Widget provides you with the ability to display your FileMaker data as locations on a Google Map, using the Google Maps clustering functionality. You can easily interact with the Google Map, click on each pin, display details about the location, and even click a link to return you to that specific record in your FileMaker solution.

We have been getting a lot of requests for a demo file to accompany one of our blog posts about google maps integration. While we aren’t quite ready to release an unlocked example file for the techniques we used, we have put together a sample file in order to allow users to try out the maps integration.
