Imagine experiencing a story from inside the story world. To freely walk in that world and interact as though it were real.
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.
The annual FileMaker developers conference (Devcon) is coming up soon. Something we always look forward to at Portage Bay, this year the conference is in Dallas, Texas. Thank goodness for air conditioning!
Need to do some data collection from users who don’t have FileMaker? A survey, application, or registration? As with most things FileMaker, there are multiple solutions to this requirement. In this short blog post, I’ll be going over the option of using a web form (such as Google Forms) so that data can be collected on a website, then automatically pushed into the FileMaker database.
In this video, we're showing some of the new FileMaker 17 developer features, specifically the redesigned developer palettes, the new grouping functionality, and the new “Default Fields” functionality.
With the release of FileMaker 17, we’ve gone over some of the top new features in a video. Check it out to see the ability to send multiple attachments, enhanced development features allowing for quicker development time, and sensors and notifications in iOS. We will also release overviews of FileMaker Server 17 and Developer Tools in FileMaker 17 in subsequent blog posts, so look for those coming out soon.
Manuscript, formerly Fogbugz, is an online software management tool made by Fog Creek (Stack Overflow, Trello, Glitch) that aids with project management and issue tracking. Within it’s full-featured package, users can submit bug tickets and feature requests, while managers can implement the Agile methodology to track projects and sprints.
One of the great things about developing solutions using FileMaker Pro is that there are always numerous ways to solve a problem. I wanted to use this post to examine a solution we designed for a large managed care organization. Several years ago, we built a customized sponsorship management application for the client that is used to manage the entire process of sponsoring 3rd party events, symposiums, conferences, including review of applications, funding distribution, accounting, and document management.
I have been fascinated with impossible places. Things like the Doctor Who Tardis, Hypercubes, and M.C. Escher’s impossible objects, lead me to happy daydreams. Lately I have been wondering, would it be possible to create some of these physically impossible spaces. Could I create them in Virtual Reality (VR), and if so, what would they feel like?
When FileMaker announced it was launching a SDK for creating native iOS apps, this was very exciting news. Developers now have the ability to build an app in FileMaker and send it to the Apple App Store. The steps for going through this process can be a bit cumbersome. After deploying a few apps, I’ve come up with a complete guide to launching an app. Note that these instructions are very specific to FileMaker iOS App SDK v15 and Xcode v8.2.1. If you find any issues when going through the checklist please leave a comment so we may update the checklist and share it with everyone.
One of the coolest new features of FileMaker 12 is the interactive Container fields. With FileMaker 12, you can play video, listen to audio, or add comments to PDFs.
The new container file management tools have some excellent benefits. Having the containers stored externally will greatly reduce file size and increase the speed of your backups while letting FileMaker do all the file management will save time and effort. If you have a large number of container fields in your database, moving to FileMaker is key to better performance.
