  1. Drop down time format

    donl, As of now, that functionality doesn't exist in FileMaker. There are some work-arounds to get this to sort-of work, but there's nothing tested or supported by Richard Carlton Consulting. It is not easily done, but if it's something you wish to proceed with attempting, feel free to email us at support@rcconsulting.com, and one of our engineers will reach out to you. Thanks, Jonathan Hogle
  2. Unread items icon

    Hey jt, This is one of those issue that would really benefit from a screen-sharing session, or a phone call at least. Email me at jonathan.hogle@rcconsulting.com, and we can schedule a time to take a look at this together. Thanks, Jonathan Hogle
  3. How to assign an account to a contact

    Stephen, Unfortunately, Steve is correct. Without Account ID's, the Contacts you imported will have to be manually attached. If you have the account ID's in the spreadsheet already, it's just a matter of setting them into the "ID_Account" field in Contacts during your data import. Thanks, Jonathan Hogle
  4. Tony, In order for those fields to work the way they do, a relationship must be formed to the Contacts module for each separate Contact you are trying to relate. Additionally, each Contact you are trying to relate must have it's own ID field that relates back to the Contacts table. So you will need a (ID_Contact_Shipping) and a (ID_Contact_Billing) in addition to the (ID_Contact) field that exists. Those two new fields will need to be related from Invoices to Contacts. If you are looking to learn more about the FileMaker Platform, as well as relationships, scripting, and other import development tasks, Richard Carlton Consulting offers a FileMaker Pro Video Training Course here: http://www.learningfilemaker.com/ Additionally, we offer One-on-One FileMaker Coaching to help you learn, while doing actual work on your solution. If you are interested in that, email us at support@rcconsulting.com Thanks, Jonathan Hogle
  5. Hello Antoine, When you imported your data, did you check the box that said "Perform Auto-Enter Options?" if not, that is the issue here. FM Starting Point relies on our "ID" fields, which are automatically generated, to relate data between two sections. When you Import records, if you don't have FileMaker generate them by checking that box, then the relationships set up will not work. Thanks, Jonathan Hogle
  6. Stephen, Are you also changing the Script parameter for the new button? To do this, when you are selecting a script for the button to run, in the box that says "Specify Script Parameter" change it to what you told it in the "if" statement. Thanks, Jonathan Hogle
  7. Hello Stephen, To Add an additional button like the ones on the left hand side, you'll need to do a few things. First, you'll need to make some changes to script (0733). You'll need to add a new "if" to check for a new Script Parameter. After that, you will need to edit the field "email_text_calc" You'll need to add new "result" (resultf) and and set it up as follows: [ resultf = Substitute(resulte; "<<Your_Inserted_Field_Name>>"; table::your_actual_field ] The set the final part to be "resultf" instead of "resulte" If all that seems too complex, or just a touch above your skill level, RCC does offer One-on-One FileMaker Coaching, where you and an RCC Engineer, will screenshare and he can walk you through processes and help you fix issues you are having, all while teaching you how to do it for yourself. If that sounds like something you would be interested in, please email support@rcconsulting.com. I'd be happy to provide you additional information from there. Thanks! Jonathan Hogle
  8. bwinger, It is possible to add that functionality, however, depending on your FileMaker knowledge, it may not be "easy." You would need to make a new script that gathers the information you want from Invoices into variables, and puts the information from those variables into a new Task. Adding it directly to the calendar without going through Tasks would not be something I would recommend. If you needed it done that way, I would recommend that you hire someone to do some development for you. If you are interested in our development services, or one-on-one FileMaker Coaching, please email us directly at support@rccomsulting.com Thanks, Jonathan Hogle
  9. Map-not showing markers

    Hey Steve, So we were able to resolve this issue, if you want to fix it now, instead of downloading the latest version, here's how: 1.) Go to the Map in FMSP 2.) Select the "Settings" Button in the top right corner 3.) Paste this Link: "https://dl.dropbox.com/s/hbkqi859pny6wdx/Green.png?dl=0" In the "Active icon" box 4.) Paste this link: "https://dl.dropbox.com/s/tvop31nebahskvw/Red.png?dl=0" In the "Inactive Icon" box That's it, that will allow the icons to display as normal. Thanks! Jonathan Hogle
  10. Map-not showing markers

    Hey Steve, Thank you so much for bringing this to our attention! We've taken note of it, and are working on fixing the issue for the next version of our product release. Thanks again! Jonathan Hogle
  11. How to invoice a Timesheet

    Stephen, The Timesheet Invoicing is done from the Project Module, because all Time Entries are linked to a specific project. In the "Invoice" tab of the "Projects" module, there is a button labeled "Create Invoice for Non-invoiced Time Entries." That's what you want to press. Thanks,
  12. Contact Link to Contact

    Hello xfiring, This may be a little much to cover strictly over text. Why don't you email us at support@rcconsulting.com, and we can talk to you about some different options available to get this all sorted out. Ask for me personally, and I'll make sure we help you out the best we can. Thanks, Jonathan Hogle
  13. Rod, To store the Project in an external drive, all you have to do is move the file from wherever it is currently stored, to the external drive. Thanks, Jonathan Hogle
  14. Calendar customization

    Kristine, The Calendar in the Latest version of FMSP (4.6.8) already has this functionality, and it has had it for some time. There should be a DropDown List of all Staff entered in your database located at the top center in the newer (4.6) versions of FMSP and on the top left in the earlier (4.5) versions. when a staff is selected it will show all To Do items for that Staff for the month you are looking at. If that is not working, I would be sure you are using the "Magnifying Glass" search button to relate a Staff member to a To Do. Thanks, Jonathan Hogle
  15. Hi All, So FMSP... has been recently updated to version 4.6.8...and is now available at www.fmstartingpoint.com.
