  1. Multiple Users One Device

    Hey Just been digging through the documentation in preparation for install. Excellent work on that front by the way. I've seen the section on multiple users and one device and the recommendation that each user has their own copy of the file on the device. I wanted to check to see if the following is true, whether the same file can be used with different people logging in to the same file with their own user account: All users belong to the same privilege set All users have access to all records - there are no filters/scripted found sets to limit different users and in the privilege set the Record setting is Create, edit, delete in all tables. I'm not sure if anything else would need to be true as well. If this were possible then would there be any additional recommendations such as force a sync when the user logs in before anything else happens? Many thanks Duncan
  2. SMTP Connect Fails - Mac only over SSL

    For others coming across this issue, Ryan's response above and his inkling were correct after examination of the logs. If you have this issue, please contact 360 Works support using the details Ryan supplied above for further assistance. Many thanks to Ryan for helping out in a very timely manner.
  3. Hey A client is having an issue with the email plugin. Up until just a couple days ago, everything was working fine. Then they started experiencing SMTP connect failures. The connect code is: EmailConnectSMTP( "smtpout.secureserver.net:465" ; "[emailaddress]" ; "[password]" ; "ssl=1" ) Pretty straight forward. It's Go Daddy hosted email. This has worked for months. I tested on two different Macs in different locations and the same issue, where previously this worked as well. I tested on a PC and it worked fine - odd. Why would it work on a PC but not on a Mac? I checked my client's Mail program on their Mac, and it is using 465 and SSL to send out and that sends out fine. So I removed the SSL attribute from the code and changed the port to 80 (per email set up instructions) and it sends out fine. I tried a different email account that uses 587 and TLS and that worked fine from the Mac. So, the issue seems to be that when using 465 and SSL on a Mac with this email server and the plugin, it fails. But change any of those attributes and it works. Nothing has changed on our side, so I'm assuming the email server has been adjusted to some small degree. The only thing left that I can think of (and differences between what I see in the Mail client and plugin attributes) is the password type is not specified when using EmailConnectSMTP. Of course it's not when sending from a PC either and that works... I've looked at the plugin logs and I see it failing but the detail is not meaningful to me. Anyone come across this issue before? Any ideas on further troubleshooting? Many thanks. Duncan

    A couple of weeks ago, we posted our solution to cross-platform Skype calling from within a Filemaker database. We were pretty pleased with it for our database solution as it allowed us to utilize our Skype subscriptions directly no matter whether we were using a Mac, PC or iPhone. But it wasn't quite perfect. So, we've worked on it some more and now it will send a SMS from Skype, and if you're on an iPhone it will send a SMS using the Message app and make a call using the Phone app. Check out the solution attached, and a PDF of the script as well as the attached demo file are available here: http://www.soundsessential.com/blog/42-information-technology/filemaker/72-filemaker-pro-cross-platform-skype-part-2-sms-iphone-calling Again, hope this helps with your solutions.

  6. I seek help on various forums from time to time but this time I'd like to give back. I had been seeking a solution to integrating Skype into a database for the purposes of dialling phone numbers or initiating Skype-to-Skype calls or chats, and got so far with it but it wasn't working cross platform. Various tips on other websites helped along the way, but I couldn't find a fully documented solution for cross-platform integration. Perhaps I didn't look hard enough, but a few weeks ago, I figured it out and have two scripts (one for dialling phone numbers and one for initiating calls/chats to a Skype name) that work on Windows, Mac and iOS. I have finally got around to posting the solution on our website: '?do=embed' frameborder='0' data-embedContent>> I hope this helps those looking to do something similar, just as some of you have been kind enough to help me.
