    Upgrade from older version?

    Hey donl1150, Yes, your file will still work just fine with FM 16. No need to worry about upgrading. Thanks, Jonathan Hogle
  2. Hello littelred, The Calendar in FMSP can be quite confusing, and is by far the most complex part of FM Starting Point. So much so that we have two separate videos about it in our FileMaker Pro 15 Video Training Course. That being said, it would be difficult and impractical to write out each aspect of the calendar, where all the data comes from, etc. Do you have access to that course? If not, you can purchase it here (http://learningfilemaker.com/fmpro15.php). The videos I mentioned are: #0213 - Calendar Under the Hood Part 1 #0213 - Calendar Under the Hood Part 2 If you'd like, you could also email us at support@rcconsulting.com and I can set you up with a free one hour coaching session where we might be able to point you in the right direction at least. Just make sure you mention this post so i know who you are! Thanks, Jonathan Hogle

    Integrated map/multiple addresses

    Lee, There is a charge for the Coaching Program; However, it is veritable based on the complexity of the request. The minimum rate is $75/hr, pre-paid in 5 hour blocks. We have a video on the mapping for FMSP, but nothing that delves into the actual code, at least not to the level that would help her replicate it somewhere else. Thanks Lee. Jonathan Hogle

    Integrated map/multiple addresses

    Estelle, Richard Carlton Consulting offers a FileMaker Coaching program that would be perfect for this sort of thing. The way is works is you and an engineer from Richard Carlton Consulting would meet One-on-One in a screensharing session, and the engineer would walk you through Step by Step how to do this. I think that this would be an excellent option to learn how the map works, and how to recreate it. If you're interested and would like more information, email us at support@rcconsulting.com. Thanks! Jonathan Hogle

    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

    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

    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
  8. 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
  9. 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
  10. 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
  11. 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
  12. 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

    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

    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,
