Workflow in FM Chat: notifications for FileMaker Server

The ostensible purpose of FM Chat is “chat” –letting your FileMaker users chat and collaborate in a searchable environment that respects FileMaker’s access privileges.

But we think the killer feature of FM Chat is “workflow” –alerting your users of events, and presenting them opportunities to take action.

We’ve recorded a short movie of a simple example: using FM Chat to send invitations to an event, and record who’s accepted:

Going Further. While we created the chat by hand in this example, FM Chat can accept chat instructions from script triggers or your own scripts. You can even use FM Chat to log what’s happening to a record for later review.

We think of it as a messaging and notifications engine for FileMaker. What will you do with it?
