We are Americans who are a non-profit and have a school for squatter children in the slums of the Philippines and would like to create student attendance database that provides various rewards.
Our goal is to encourage the kids to attend school who otherwise wouldn't and provide them with a reward point type of system. Each day they attend school, they get 5pts. If they remembered to wear their school uniform they get additional 5 pts. At the end of the day or the end of the week, they can use their points and trade them in for rice, milk, things that will help them feed their family, get school supplies etc.
We would like to account for how often they come to track their daily attendance. We are hoping to include other fields that would be helpful to medical assistance, needs, etc.
As of now, we print and laminte, cutout little paper coins we give them and it is a lot of work. We have around 400-600 kids who attend class. Annually we have several large community events where we track the daily attendance during summer of up to 3,000 students who attend. This is all done by hand so a digital type system would really benefit, save time, manpower, and streamline what we are doing.
- track attendance
- reward attendance and such by point system
- can use their student card points at cafeteria for snacks or for extra stuff as incentive to help their families.
If you know of something that would help us, or have some ideas, please let us know.
I am getting an error while sync,
"Last sync failed: com.prosc.sync.AbortException: Failure while recording changes from FileMaker Server 192.168.8.150/sync_Information: java.sql.SQLException: IO error: position 13016373"
Is it possible to skip this one particular table in MirrorSync sync to test the other tables?
I recently moved my Filemaker databases to a new Windows server. And since then, I’m having sporadic “Database Server process has terminated abnormally” Error 701. This is accompanied in the Windows event logs with application error 1000, and these are the details:

This did not happen on the older Windows Server, which was 2008. The new server is 2012 R2 Standard
It first occurred on the first day I starting using the databases on the new server. So updated FM Server 15 to latest (15.3). I then performed all available Windows updates, updated Java. Then a few days elapsed before Filemaker failed again, with exact same errors.
So I performed a recover on the databases within Filemaker, just to check. All fine. I also downgraded FM Server to version 14 to eliminate FM Server 15 as an issue. After downgrading to 14 we had 6 days then before it failed. But last night it went again with same errors.
It seems to occur when a scheduled Filemaker script is being run on the server. But oddly, when the server is quiet, ie. After 18:00 when people have logged off and gone home, or at lunch break. The Filemaker scripts are run every 30 mins during office hours, so run many many times over the days between failures with success, and did so for years before I moved to new server.
When the 701 error occurs, I’m forced to reboot the server. It doesn’t auto restart the process after failure.
I would be incredibly grateful for any advice on this. Anyone aware of issues similar?

If I wanted to script a mobile device update process, is it possible to directly access the download link and not have to go through the intermediate trigger page?.
I would like to grab a copy of the hosted file and insert it into a container.
Currently hitting the download link returns the "Download file is ready and should automatically start downloading now." Then later a JS forced download.

My use case is such that mobile users need some records that have containers. The hub has containers stored externally.
Deploying to the mobile device breaks the container. Triggering the Server side record will 'refresh' the mobile container and display its contents (after a sync)
Can I force a table (or found set) to sync from the server to the mobile device WITHOUT forcing those images to download to all the other mobile devices?.
Each iPad will have its own set of records. What are some options here? Am I forced to tickle the containers server side forcing a download or any device that would normally download them?
Is there a way to force a download of just this one table and not affect the others? or the modTimeStamp?
