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 tried to install MirrorSync 3.17 today on a MacOS with 10.12.3 and FMS 22.214.171.1248. The installer is hanging at about 80% progress at "Running package scripts..."
Is there an installer log file that I can examine?
In addition I noted in the docs the restriction against multiple users sharing the same file on the same device:
I am wondering about the details of this restriction and is it possible for multiple users to share the same db file on the same device if there is no record filtering or record-level access features enabled?
Over the past ten years our organization have been using a PO database solution to store all purchasing information. Each year
the layout would change to illustrate which year it represents. We would like to merge each of these databases into one for better
searching capabilities. Is there an easy way to accomplish this task while still maintaining data integrity? Thank you!
Hi I'm trying to develop an interface between my filemaker database and a SOAP service. No where in the wsdl is there any authorisation so I believe I need to send my username and password before the SOAP envelope. I'm trying to do that with Scriptmaster but there are only three input parameters none of which appear useful for generating or inputting the HTTP authorisation Basic that needs to be in place. I can't see the fedex modules which may have had the parameters I needed. Can anybody help/advise or suggest another plugin I should use.
Many thanks for reading this.
