A colleague recently posed this challenge: is it possible to show two columns in a portal, such that the first row displays records 1 and 2, the second row displays records 3 and 4, etc.? With FileMaker, the answer is usually “Yes!”
Recently we’ve looked at two methods to generate a “faux” subsummary to address a shortcoming of FileMaker native subsummaries… namely that in a multipage report you can have orphaned entries at the top of a given page with no indication of what parent entity they belong to.
One limitation of both the above approaches is that they only worked with fixed-height report rows. Well today we have a nice, outside the box solution from Daniel Wood that does not suffer from this limitation.
The FileMaker JSON functions we have in FileMaker 16 have changed the development game for many folks. … Since JSON’s purpose is to exchange data, it seems these functions are good enough. We at Geist Interactive have combined these with other FileMaker functions to produce some custom functions (in JSONAdditions.fmp12) that are useful in many circumstances.
fmDaysToGo is a free app for your iPhone or iPad created using FileMaker. FileMaker Go is an iOS mobile app that enables anyone with FileMaker to create and deploy apps easily. FileMaker Go has been downloaded more than 4 million times on the Apple app store.
On the Move got the solution it needed so they could make the critical event data in FileMaker quickly and easily available to their contractors using their mobile devices including iPhones and Android.
Super Simple & Secure Credit Card Processing Through FileMaker Pro 16 and FileMaker Pro 17 Advanced.
When we talk about dialogs we’re actually talking about windows in the FileMaker sense. They could be a card window, or they could be a regular dialog window, or even a floating window or FileMakers own modal window style. Modal refers to a window state where the window cannot be dismissed without the user explicitly making a decision that will lead to the closing of that window.
Knowing how to use a FileMaker Join table ( though not exclusive to FileMaker) can solve many data-model related questions for us. … The join table, as it is commonly called and known, solves the complex problem of how to structure the data model when the entities are related in a many-to-many style. A classic example of these entities includes classes and people. Many people have many classes. A join table joins these two entities together.
Today we’re going to take another look at a challenge we discussed last time (in Conditional Summary Report Header)… namely how to cajole FileMaker into displaying a subsummary, or a reasonable facsimile thereof, at the top of a report page when items in the group begin on an earlier page.
The keys to subcontractor relationship management are setting clear expectations and maintaining great communications. So, as a contractor, what should you expect from your subcontractor? And, as a subcontractor, what […]

Talks about Karbon’s purpose and position, the data model, and API integration. Also covers the tool Generator that helps generate 95% of the code needed for Karbon. Finally we looked at testing in Karbon and one specific integration with LedgerLink and Quickbooks Online.
Breadcrumb menus are great. They tell the user a lot about where they are within a solutions hierarchy. They also provide a really quick and easy way to navigate up/down that hierarchy if needed. In the FileMaker world, people have been making breadcrumb menus in various forms for a while […].
And while all of these methods are workable, they tend to have limitations […].
Before you create any layouts, you need to decide on a theme. Choosing a theme is one of the most important decisions you will make for a project. Themes define the user experience more than any other feature in FileMaker.
When printing a multipage report sorted by a sub-summary, is there a way to display the sub-summary heading on the following page when it breaks across two or more pages?
Today we are announcing that beginning immediately, Backblaze B2 customers will be able to download data stored in B2 to Cloudflare for zero transfer fees.
