  1. Fireside FileMaker Episode 35 - UI vs. UX Every once in a while, we find ourselves with a guest who brings a totally unexpected and fascinating viewpoint. These are the episodes that go way beyond the 'you should listen' and reach ‘you must listen'. Today's podcast is one of those episodes. We are joined by Darrin Southern, from CadenceUX in Melbourne, Australia, for an absolutely incredible conversation which starts with the somewhat 'new' concept of UX (the User Experience) and then veers off into some very intersting territory. Both John Mark and I learned a lot and you will also.
  2. https://firesidefilemaker.podbean.com/e/these-are-a-few-of-our-favorite-things-part-2/ In this two part podcast, John Mark and I go back deep into the past to discuss the most important and influential features released in each version of FileMaker. Many, if not most, of these fetures are still in use today but they have all paved the way for the deveopment powerhouse that FieMaker is today. Even though, nobody really needs to know when these features came about, we think you will find this episode more than a little interesting and, as always, we'd love to hear your comments. Part 1

  4. Last week, the 1st Claris Engage conference took place, virtually, over a 2 day period. John Mark and I plus our special guest Marc Larochele (from Productive Computing) reminisce about previous DevCons and then, at 11 minutes in, we start to discuss the conference itself. (All of the sessions are available to watch at the Claris Comminity website. Login and then click on Academy, fill in the simple questionnaire and then click on Engage On-Demand). What you will get in this podcast is our perspective and thoughts and we think you’ll find it a worthwhile listen. https://firesidefilemaker.
  5. We invited Darren Terry on our show to talk about the calculation dependency tree (what triggers calculations to fire). What we got was so much more than we expected. Darren’s close ties with Claris engineers and dedication to the platform has given him insight into how FileMaker works under the hood. To put it simply, both of us were flabbergasted at how much he taught us about FileMaker. Come join us in this in this "can’t miss" PodCast about the calculation engine and whatever else comes across Darren’s big brain. (Our regular guest, Marc Larochelle had this to say "You can plant an entire
  6. The short video linked below shows a radio button value list that shouldn't work because the 2nd field is an unstored calculation however it does some of the time and others not. I've been noticing this for some considerable time and I'd love to get to the bottom of why. Any thoughts will be greatly appreciated. https://www.screencast.com/t/7CWCfpqfeP
  7. Since we can see values from a related table why would we ever need to enter those values into the related table itself, i.e., entering a company name (either via a Lookup (not recommended) or by Insert Calculated Result in Field Options). This video discusses 3 reasons why you would want to do this.
  8. In this video, we add a related value list to the mix allowing users to select a year and see only clients with invoices for that year.
  9. Lookups have been around for ever and they are never going to go away but it's important that you understand the reason they are there and, more importantly, why you shouldn't use them any more
  10. John Mark Osborne and Michael Rocharde are proud to release a special 2 hour episode discussing the release of FileMaker 19 and what it means for Claris, the developer community and ultimately its customers. While, on the surface and at first glance, there doesn't appear to be all that much that is new, a closer look reveals a version that is about to revolutionize the way that solutions are developed. With our regular guest, Marc Larochelle of Productive Computing, we discuss every aspect of the FileMaker 19 release which is new in many ways not least of which is that there will now be increm
