  1. Hi everyone, I am loading lat and lng coordinates from logged from Filemaker Go into our Filemaker that we use on the Mac into the webviewer displayed in a popup card window. Unfortunately, only part of the map is shown on the webviewer. I seem to be missing something. Played around with the different refresh and pause settings but nothing works. However, if I load the viewer into its card window 3 times, it shows correctly. In attach my code and how it renders - would anyone know what the issue is? It renders fine in filemaker go.... Thank you
  2. Hi everyone, had this on the filemaker go section but moving this here, I guess that's where it rather belongs. i am building a simple time logging app for our staff using the data separation model. The interface file opens two other files, one with the time data the other one with the user information- all from our filemaker server 17. While the interface file saves the user information to filemaker go and authenticates the user with face id when the user returns to the app, the two other data files pop up with "please authenticate" with username and password. In the keychain they also dont appear. I was thinking about setting the fmauthenticate priviledge for these files or manually opening the linked files for each user and saving the credentials but both seems wrong. All passwords and user names for one user are the same by the way. Seems like I am missing a thought here why one password and username (for the interface file) is not enough .( Checking this with other users that are just logging I found out that with them its a different file that requires authentication and which password is not saved. Also upon opening it requires me to put in the password for the individual files. I think I am missing something here. Thanks for your thoughts.
  3. Hi everyone, on a file accessed via filemaker Go 17, I am using a scripted navigation to move records up and down in a portal that is inside a popover. This has worked in filemaker 12 like a charm and also works on a filemaker client. The records smoothly move up and down the list. However in Filemaker Go, the portal follows every move of the script as if it is not aware of the freeze portal. EG the down button is to move the record one record further down inside the filtered and sorted portal (like so) This is the script. - freeze window and go to portal - go to first line of portal and loop through the portal until I hit the record to move - go to next line and give the position field the value of my record to be moved - go to line above and give the position field the value of my record +1 - commit record and refresh portal via an x join - go to last line of the portal - go to the line of position of my record to be moved. Would anyone be aware of this issue or know a workaround to stop the portal from flickering? Thanks so much
  4. Yes, that makes total sense. So storing should not be an issue, the collaboration is what does not work. So users outside of filemaker could have read only access to the files, e.g. the tax accountant could have read access to the documents that are stored via filemaker. A project manager on the go without filemaker access could do the same, just the editing bit does not work then. Not bad so far...
  5. In the past, we have been using filemaker to take care of everything business related. Due to many people now working connected while on the move and the mix between clients and team collaborating on files, there are more and more times where people work on say e.g. an Excel file together while on the move. The mac server that hosts filemaker server could have the dropbox app installed and be logged in and a specific folder on the dropbox share of that server could have the permission for fmserver to read and write. What would be the drawbacks besides the time to synch once something is posted to use a folder on dropbox to host external container data? Would this not open the option for everyone that has access to those files to amend even without filemaker when on the move? Those files could also be made available for someone like a tax consultant as read only via a link? Filemaker would then do the role of the DMS? Before we have used Supercontainer but with files outside of FM, people would need to download / checkout then re upload. This would get rid of the problem. In case of an error, that file could be restored from the dropbox logic. Any thoughts / ideas on this? Thank you.
  6. Ouch FItch, that is a little embarrassing that I never came upon this. Its probably when you are so locked on developing stuff for a single company only that you forget about the big picture. Well, thanks.
  7. Hi everyone, Not sure if this is even the right subcategory, feel free to hint. For several years, I continued to enhance our company database as we grow and collect data, invoices, articles, clients, companies. Now we opened a second company that I would like to integrate into the existing one. We want to share our contacts, companies and articles but not our invoices, bills and several other things. The database is build on the anchor buoy model, some selector connector methodology as well. Each user has a company code in his profile. In my ideal world depending on the user, his database connections would look at his own "invoices" or "bills" records file. But that of course is not possible, right? Is there a way to archieve this at all or am I stuck to record with a company code "flag" field? Thanks for your thoughts
  8. as weird as it gets some days, omitting a $ sign in the password for the SSL certificate did it for me together with the concentated root and intermediate that I got from Thawte. Solved- thanks
  9. I used text editor to open serverrequest.pem used this to paste the key into thawte and then on filemaker import used the certificate from thawte the private key - serverkey pem and the intermediate certificate, Still did not work, sorry
  10. Yes, absolutely. The Thawte comes only with two files, the certificate and the intermediate certificate. Thanks
  11. That whitepaper is an excellent source to get this started. However I cannot get my Filemaker17 Server to install the certificate. - I ran fmsadmin to create the CSR request - I pasted the CSR to the CA authority, using Thawtes SSL 123 certificate - chose Signature hash algorithm: SHA-256 SH1 - downloaded the certificate. However filemaker does not accept the certificate: "either the certificate file is wrong or the private key file cannot be used with the password" From what I see I am doing everything right :( Has anyone had the same problem? Thanks a lot
  12. Hi everyone, currently I am looking into creating a very simple database for a cocktail competition for a spirits brand. The competitors are coming from markets all over the worlds, the local offices are submitting the recipies, images and some further information in my ideal world via webdirect into the database itself. I dont think there need to be more then 2-3 users accessing that database simultaneously. My question would be if anyone is experienced with filemaker hosters and the perfomance of that hosting when the db is accessed from different parts of the world. In other words: where would be an ideal country for hosting the file (in terms of performance) if it were to be accessed from Europe, Japan, USA, Israel, China and South America? Please advise, Thank you.
  13. Had the same issue, in my case I forgot to switch the menu set to one that included Search. Turning on the standard menu set including all options did the trick.
  14. I would really like to know what program you would use for access. Obviously, there would have to be a multiple user logon to the server. If I remember correctly real VPN is only one user logged onto the server, right? Thanks for the suggest, but VNC is only for a single user session logon, right? Guacamole is only for linux and windows? What would be your alternative to use for a mac osx server and multiple users?
  15. Yes, this would be great performance wise. But then I would like to have users log in with a profile. If I remember correctly, multiple user sessions can only be done with a program such as http://www.aquaconnect.net/remote-desktop-services or what would you recommend? All users are using macs. Thanks
