  1. 360Works is Now an AWS Partner 360Works, a leading FileMaker product developer and innovator, is now additionally an AWS (Amazon Web Services) Consulting Partner! The AWS Partner Network (APN) is comprised of technology experts that are focused on helping customers take full advantage of all the benefits in the AWS universe of services. As an APN Consulting Partner, 360Works will provide services that help customers design, architect, build, migrate, and manage their workloads and applications on AWS. 360Works develops frequently with services from AWS and believes that the AWS platform provides tremendous resources for extending the FileMaker platform (beyond only cloud hosting). For reference, take a look at Jesse Barnum's 2018 FileMaker Developer Conference video: "Beyond Virtual Machines: Tapping into the AWS Universe of Services". Currently, several of the existing 360Works plug-ins and add-ons for FileMaker leverage AWS technology in their functionality: 360Works CloudMail: Send and track formatted email marketing campaigns in FileMaker. Uses many different AWS services, including Simple Email Service (SES), Simple Queue Service (SQS), and Elastic Cloud Computing (EC2). 360Works Email Plug-in: Send and receive text and HTML emails in FileMaker; send SMS. Supports SES. 360Works SafetyNet: FileMaker Server offsite backup, uses AWS Simple Storage Service (S3). 360Works FTPeek: FTP upload and download from your FileMaker database, supports S3. 360Works MirrorSync: Automated tool for synchronizing FileMaker databases. Supports AWS DynamoDB and RedShift. As an example of custom development work, 360Works worked with Thorsen Consulting to create a high volume web application for Chicago Public Schools, which supported up to 40,000 users within a one hour period (5,000 simultaneously). By leveraging AWS Lambda, API Gateway, S3, and DynamoDB, along with MirrorSync to sync DynamoDB with FileMaker Server, we were able to achieve user workloads much higher than what FileMaker Server would be able to handle. 360Works has AWS expertise in the following services: Amazon Lambda: run code without provisioning or managing servers Amazon DynamoDB: key-value and document database that delivers single-digit millisecond performance at any scale Amazon Aurora MySQL- compatible edition: relational database built for the cloud; it is up to five times faster than standard MySQL databases Amazon Kinesis: makes it easy to collect, process, and analyze real-time, streaming data so you can get timely insights and react quickly to new information Amazon S3 / CloudFront: fast content delivery network (CDN) service that securely delivers data, videos, applications, and APIs to customers globally with low latency and high transfer speeds Amazon Simple Email Service: reliable, cost-effective service for businesses of all sizes that use email or SMS to keep in contact with their customers. How can 360Works help you? The developers at 360Works are always excited to work on integrating any of the above AWS offerings into your FileMaker solution or business workflow. If you are low on time, or you'd like help setting up an AWS integration in your own solution, our developers can help by providing our consulting services.

  4. 360Works New Update: 360Deploy 2.5 360Works has just released 360Deploy 2.5; it ships with server-side scheduling, granular deployments, and several important improvements to the deployment process. 360Works provides outside-the-box innovation, so you can be the genius FileMaker developer at work while using the most robust, innovative development tools you need to get the job done. 360Deploy is a FileMaker deployment tool, designed to make FileMaker data migration easier. It utilizes the FileMaker Data Migration Tool, but it is so much more than a "wrapper". It completely automates the tedious data migration tasks, while pushing changes from the development environment to the production server. Download 360Deploy 2.5 What Does 360Deploy Do? Clones the development database Transfers clone to the production server Imports the data from the production database and into the clone to absorb the new architecture *For large databases, it supports a scheduling feature to run imports overnight. Backs up the production solution in archived folders prior to import should clients wish to revert back to the old version Renames the deployed file Resumes the deployed file What's New in 360Deploy 2.5? 360Deploy 2.5 introduces compatibility with Server Side Scheduled Scripts. You can now schedule deployments from the admin console. This is very useful if you need the deployment to run at a set down time where users are not accessing the database, such as overnight hours. Granular deployments are another big feature in 360Deploy 2.5; it allows you to turn files on and off for deployment without needing to re-do all of the configuration steps. You can simply select the files you do or do not want deployed at a specified time without any hassle. There are several important improvements to help you experience a more elegant and easier deployment process: Multiple configurations can be stored in the same file now, allowing different configurations to use different license keys Deploying the same file multiple times to the same server is now smoother Implemented a more graceful process for kicking users out and closing files; the file-closing workflow has been reworked and improved for a better user experience Please visit our changelog for a complete list of changes. Keep in mind, once you press the 'deploy' button in 360Deploy, there is nothing left to do. It sends the new version to FileMaker Server (or multiple servers), and then runs in the background on each server, so you are free to continue working, take a break, or head home for the night, knowing that the new version will be safely deployed to users on each server by the time you get back. You'll receive an email when the process is complete. Skip the hassle of fumbling with files on the server and stick to the 'one-button click' of 360Deploy for dev changes. Download 360Deploy 2.5 Compatibility 360Deploy 2 requires FileMaker Pro or Advanced 16, and production databases must be hosted on FileMaker Server 14 or later. After downloading 360Deploy on your server and configuring settings with the simple 360Deploy Setup utility, 360Deploy will deploy the development file changes to your users with the click of one button. Purchasing 360Deploy 2.5 is a free upgrade for 360Deploy 2 license holders, which is a huge benefit of maintaining the latest version of 360Works software. If you do not have a license, 360Deploy 2 is available immediately for purchase at the 360Deploy page. Pricing starts at $195, which includes deployment with a single FileMaker solution (this can be a multi-file solution) and a single production server. It allows updated file versions for one solution to be deployed to one live / production server. Additionally, there is a free demo license available which can deploy to any number of servers for testing and evaluation purposes. Higher grade license types are available for purchase as well.

  6. Most of us in the FileMaker Community are well aware of how to run FileMaker Server or FileMaker Cloud on Amazon Web Services (AWS), but we can do more! At 360Works, we believe in outside-the-box thinking to continually push the FileMaker platform to places it has not yet been. For this reason, Jesse Barnum, President of 360Works, spent time developing new and innovative ways to integrate the AWS multitude of services into FileMaker. At the 2018 FileMaker Developer Conference, he presented on how to interact directly with AWS Web Service APIs, signing AWS calls (authentication), and specific demos of: Kinesis: how to make record changes to FileMaker records with a single HTTP request (audit logging without the increased demand on FileMaker Server) SQS:message queuing service Transcribe: voice and memo recording that automatically gets recorded in your solution as text S3: file uploads/file management Athena: run SQL queries against audit log data stored on S3 Here's what the FileMaker Community thought of the DevCon Session: "Demonstrating the real reach of FileMaker's ability to integrate with other services. Power indescribable!! While a lot of the session covered things that were beyond my skill level, but I left feeling like I could learn it!" "Introduced new tools I can take advantage for my customers" "This was the best session of the entire conference. I highly anticipate anything from Jesse Barnum in the future." "Jesse may be the consummate presenter. Great material, expertly delivered. Incredibly worthwhile session. Thank you!" Couldn’t make it this year?

  7. 360Deploy 2 automates your process of making FileMaker changes and migrating the data to a live or production (PROD) database. Experience an easy and safe tool to make changes to your development (DEV) file and send off the changes with the click of a button. With 360Deploy 2, all you'll need to do is use the configuration tool to set up and your users will be enjoying their new database in no time! Joe Martin, Senior Developer at 360Works, recently presented at the Houston FMDUT Meeting where he demonstrated the setup of 360Deploy 2 and covered development topics on deploying changes to a PROD file. Today we have a video recap of the meeting that has been shortened to 15 minutes so you can briefly observe what the process will look like for you or follow along with the setup! Below the video we have summarized a few answers to questions asked after the presentation. Q&A Summary: What happens when you add a new value list? If you add a new value list, it will be pulled in from the dev file (prod value list will be wiped out) 360Deploy makes a clone of DEV file and pulls in from it Considering adding a feature to customize this in the future (alternatively pulls from PROD file) How are accounts handled? 360Deploy pulls data and accounts from PROD, and layout and schema from DEV What does 360Deploy do with your container data? 360Deploy does nothing with your container data. Which is the desired behavior. Externally stored containers live in completely separate folders than the database itself. If we run our database migration, and put the production database back in place, the records will still be able to resolve their external container dependency to that data. Container data is ignored, but we maintain the link to it so that when the dev file is swapped out with the prod file those links can re-establish themselves. Is 360Deploy FileMaker Cloud compatible? 360Deploy is not FM Cloud Compatible due to FMS admin technology not made available to us. However, we can host for you. Please contact us at support@360works.com to learn more about hosting. Does 360Deploy absolutely require FileMaker Server ...can it be ran locally? 360Deploy requires a production server to deploy to, as this was the primary goal behind the product. Your DEV files can be local. Can 360Deploy run overnight? 360Deploy can be set to run overnight using an on timer script. You'll need to leave the client open to let it run overnight. In later versions, we plan to have scheduled scripts so you can run the deployment from anywhere such as your iPad. Story Behind 360Deploy? 360Deploy 1 was created by Sam Barnum to create a solution that did not exist (before FileMaker Data Migration Tool was released). He had to come up with several workarounds for abstracting a database import, one being able to dynamically generate a script to determine the next serial number for imported tables. However, now 360Deploy 2 can run imports and migrations faster and smoother since it leverages the new FileMaker Data Migration Tool. Our ultimate goal was to provide a nicer way to manage files on your server, providing smoother imports and making tedious work a lot easier. We plan to continue innovating around this goal with features in future version releases. Getting Started? We recommend using the demo version first to make sure it is going to work for your solution. We'll be happy to help you get a license once you are done your testing. Please email support@360works.com with any questions you may have. For more information or to download, visit: 360deploy.com.
  8. 360Works CloudMail leverages various services managed by Amazon Web Services (AWS) for sending reliable, secure, and scalable email messages from FileMaker in an "email marketing or e-blast" format. This allows CloudMail to send to a single recipient or to a 20,000 person newsletter list and track analytics such as who receives the message, who views it, and who clicks any links in the message. On October 19, 2018, Amazon Web Services Simple Queue Service (SQS) will be changing their method for sending large message payloads which requires us to change our plug-in framework for CloudMail. Action Needed This plug-in update is critical to continue using 360Works CloudMail for sending email messages. CloudMail users will need to update their plug-in to version 3.1 as soon as possible (before October 19, 2018). Availability CloudMail 3.1 is available today as a free software update for licensed users with active maintenance. Users who have not purchased or renewed maintenance outside of 1 year from their date of purchase will need to pay for the new version. For more information, visit: the CloudMail Licensing Page. At 360Works, we strive to make sure our plug-ins are compatible with technology changes as they arise and to provide the best possible support to our customers. If you are in need of technical assistance, please contact us at support@360works.com Download CloudMail 3.1 Stay updated with 360Works
  9. MirrorSync 5 is now available and with it ships a better user experience for your clients! Today, we want to share 3 ways you can optimize your FileMaker sync experience for your users with the lastest version of MirrorSync. If you haven't heard...MirrorSync allows you to sync FileMaker Go, FileMaker Pro, FileMaker Servers, SQL databases, and virtually any datatbase you can think of! Here are 3 ways you can sync FileMaker and provide a better user experience using MirrorSync 5: 1. Encrypted Password Storage No user wants to repetitively enter their password before a sync! As a convenience to your users, MirrorSync 5 will now store encrypted passwords for your users on the server. Essentially, it stores an encrypted version of the last used password to sync an offline file. In MirrorSync 5, instead of picking between a shared, auto-entered password (less secure) or individual passwords that need to be entered on each sync (less convenient), everyone can use their own password with ease and optimal security. 2. Fast Initial Sync MirrorSync now runs a server-side initial sync! It will save an empty clone of the file, and temporarily host the empty file copy on FileMaker Server where it runs a fast server to server sync of only the selected records you want to sync. This is especially helpful if you have a massive database and only want to sync a subset of records without draining the memory on the local device, such as an iPad or iPhone. Once the sync is complete, MirrorSync closes the file on the server and sends the pre-populated file down to your users. 3. Monitor Your Sync Statistics MirrorSync now reports sync stats to AWS CloudWatch. You can get real-time updates on important metrics such as sync times, warnings, and other notifications. Having this insight at your fingertips will make you instantly aware of issues or difficulties your users may be running into. Watch a Video on this Topic Now! We enjoy meeting up with our fellow FileMaker Developers at DevCon. Each year, we like to catch up with Richard Carlton Consulting who offers educational and entertaining FileMaker training that will keep you engaged and leave you with the knowledge and tools you need to be an excellent FileMaker Developer. Check out Richard's video below to see an in-depth explanation and interview on MirrorSync 5 with 360Works President, Jesse Barnum. Download a free version of MirrroSync 5, upgrade, or purchase here.

  11. New Major Version Release: MirrorSync 5! 360Works, is proud to announce MirrorSync 5, a new major version of the easy-to-use data replication tool that quickly and seamlessly syncs an offline database running on FileMaker Go or FileMaker Pro with a database hosted by FileMaker Server and syncs various configurations of SQL databases. MirrorSync 5 will greatly improve convenience for your end users by making the sync process faster and more secure. We have added features to improve the initial sync making all subsequent syncs more seamless and we have reduced the amount of password requests needed to access the database for syncing. Additionally, there have been over 40 new improvements made to enhance reliability, speed, and stability overall! Powerful New Features Added: Faster Speeds: Run the Initial Sync on the Server With large databases, initial syncs can take a long time when filtering a subset of records for each user. MirrorSync 5 now has a feature to drastically improve this initial sync time, by hosting a temporary copy of the file on FileMaker Server, running the initial sync entirely on the server, and sending the pre-synced file to the user's iPad, laptop, or iPhone. The performance improvement is especially noticeable when syncing with filtered record sets for large databases, and syncing over cellular networks. If you are syncing a custom/personalized set of records from a table with more than 10,000 records, this update is critical for improving the speed of your syncs. During our testing, we found that initial syncs are now 3 times faster. For example, doing an initial sync of 10,000 records into an empty clone on an iPad Mini over WiFI took 9:13 using traditional client-side initial sync, and 3:43 using the new server-side initial sync feature of MirrorSync 5. More Convenient: Encrypts and Remembers User Passwords MirrorSync will now remember user passwords, so that they don't need to be re-entered on each sync after an offline file is opened. It encrypts and saves the initial password on the MirrorSync server, preventing users from repetitively entering their passwords for better security and end user convenience. If the password is changed on the server file, the user will be re-prompted for a new password. If you've been using a shared password for all users to avoid the hassle of password double-entry, you can now switch to the more secure option to use individual accounts, without making extra work for your users. More Reliable: New Sync Auditing Feature to Monitor Sync Progress We have added an advanced notifications feature in MirrorSync 5, which posts CloudWatch metrics and SNS notifications when a sync completes or fails. While this feature is optional and can be turned on or off, it is very beneficial for those who wish to receive updates on sync statistics or receive alarms for sync behaviors (e.g. number of records inserted, sync duration, number of sync warnings). You will need an AWS account to use this feature. Improvements for MirrorSync Hosting Providers Log files are now separated by the MirrorSync application name. This is important for hosting providers to be able to see each customers log files separately. New Support for Syncing with DynamoDB, the Back-end Database of Amazon.com We have added support for syncing with DynamoDB, a database under Amazon Web Services that is simple, serverless, scalable, and provides low-latency data access. DynamoDB is used by Amazon with their retail site (Amazon.com) where it handles 13.9 million requests per second! Give us a call if you'd like to hear more about how we synced a government FileMaker solution with DynamoDB to handle huge web traffic loads. More Convenient with FileMaker Server 17 If you are considering switching to FileMaker Server 17, now is the perfect time. MirrorSync will now automatically enable XML Web Publishing on FileMaker Server 17, so that you don't have to do in the command line or data API. There are over 40 new improvements in MirrorSync 5, giving you more unbelievable new ways to do the unSYNCable! See the complete changelog here. MirrorSync Map: Speed and Reliability We analyzed a month of syncing data to show its speed and reliability. The following map shows MirrorSync users who performed syncs in 45 countries around the world across different cities and countries (does not include installations with statistics gathering disabled). 99.4% of 269,000 Syncs completed with no errors 133,465 FileMaker Server to MySQL Syncs with a median sync time of 5.3 seconds 79,961 FileMaker Server to FileMaker Server Syncs with a median sync time of 12.4 seconds 27,085 FileMaker Server to FileMaker Pro/Go Syncs with a median sync time of 22.9 seconds 19,249 FileMaker Server to DynamoDB Syncs with a median sync time of 20.5 seconds 14,279 FileMaker Server to other SQL Databases with a median sync time of 65.3 seconds Longest sync distance of 1,184 Miles Licensing and Hosting You can download MirrorSync 5 instantly and start syncing with the new improvements.

Instead, we will embark on a one hour tour of the incredibly powerful software as a service (SaaS) offerings from AWS. AWS is the largest cloud computing vendor in the world, with services such as real-time message queues, machine learning, and massive on-demand general computing services. You'll learn how to interact directly with any of these services by sending AWS requests using the FileMaker Platforms Insert from URL, JSON, and encryption features. Recommended Background: Experience with the Insert from URL script step, REST APIs, cURL, and JSON. Stay updated with 360Works

  14. The 360Works FTPeek plugin uploads, downloads, and manipulates remote files on an FTP (File Transfer Protocol) server from within any FileMaker solution. FTPeek version 2.1 is now available with an added feature supporting uploads and downloads from Amazon S3! Amazon Simple Storage Service (S3) runs on the AWS Cloud Infrastructure. It remains a highly-rated, industry-standard for data storage and retrieval, of any amount of data. As with most AWS services, S3 is versatile, reliable, and secure. It offers flexible storage management and administration capabilities, along with a simple interface that you can use to retrieve data from anywhere on the web. Getting started with Amazon S3 in the 360Works FTPeek plugin is easy. Using the function FTPeek_ConnectS3 will connect to your Amazon Web Services account when specifying the parameters for your AWS region and bucket, access key, and secret key. Once connected, you can then upload, download, and list files like any other FTP Server. Full reference documentation can be obtained at 360works.com/ftp-plugin Pricing for FTPeek starts at $195 for a 10-user workgroup license - less than $20 per user! Current version 2 license holders can upgrade to FTPeek 2.1 at no additional cost. Version 1 license holders can upgrade to version 2 at a nominal cost. For more on upgrade pricing or to download, please visit 360works.com/ftp-plugin More Reasons to Use the 360Works FTPeek plugin: Security: public encryption key is included with support for FTP over SSL (FTPS) and FTP over SSH (SFTP) Universal Binary cross-platform support: Windows and Mac compatible Runs on your FileMaker Server: Automate nightly FTP batch transfers with scheduled scripts or embed FTP scripts into WebDirect or Custom Web Publishing Transfer directly to/from FileMaker fields: FTP documents and images directly from text and container fields to the FTP server Includes a built-in FTP user interface: Give users full FTP access to the server, a full-featured, 100% FileMaker FTP solution is included with the plugin What Do Other FileMaker Developers Think? "I think you guys are filling a big gap with that single plugin. The fact that it supports FTP, SFTP, and FTPS is key . We have replaced two plug-ins (one for FTP and one for SFTP) with a single plugin and can now offer FTPS as an alternative to our customers." - Matt Klein, Small Business Computers of New England, Inc.

  15. Need a Way to Send SMS/Text Messages from FileMaker? We have released a new update for the 360Works Email Plugin, version 3.1, allowing you to send text messages from FileMaker leveraging technology from Amazon Web Services along with improvements to the plugin when used on Windows. We like Amazon Web Services (AWS) and as you may have noticed, we use AWS technology in a lot of our product updates. AWS has been a scalable and reliable remote computing infrastructure for our software and we have a great depth of experience in implementing their services into our development. Recently, we've been working on improving the SMS/text message service for our Email Plugin, and Amazon's Simple Notification Service (SNS) API was the optimal technology to leverage for sending SMS in FileMaker. Unlike using other gateways, there is no need to hassle with lengthy account set ups and various expensive complicated pricing models. In fact, if you already have an AWS account you can get started for free and use the 360Works Email Plugin for sending text messages right now! How it Works With the 360Works Email Plugin now using the AWS SNS service, you can push out text messages to a large number of subscribers on their mobile devices. Example business use cases: Notifying a customer that a pet is ready for pick-up on their mobile device Sending project update alerts to teams on the go Confirming and reminding clients of appointment times via text message Virtually any case you can think of where a mobile message service is needed! The AWS functionality in the Email Plugin is easy to set up, operate, and reliably send notifications to all your endpoints - at any scale. It takes just 1 function call to send a text message from FileMaker; simply enter your AWS Access Key, AWS Secret Key, a phone number, and a brief message like so: EmailSMSSend("AccessKeyHere";"SecretKeyHere";"17702349293";"Your Message Here"] ...and you're done! Where required by local laws and regulations (such as the US and Canada), SMS recipients can use their devices to opt out. Developers can manage sending settings in their AWS console. Using the 360Works Email Plugin is a great way to send SMS in FileMaker Go. You can trigger a script on a machine that has the Email Plugin installed. Using FileMaker Server, you can have routine scripts that will process all the outstanding function calls or even use 360Works RemoteScripter Plugin to trigger server side scripts. Your users can send text messages from their FileMaker Go custom app, whether using an iPhone on the field or an iPad throughout the office. Pricing and Availability The Email Plugin is essentially a 2-for-1 deal. When you purchase it you receive the SMS/text message functionality as well as the powerful email sending capabilities of the plugin, such as sending and receiving HTML formatted and multiple attachment emails with SMTP, POP, and IMAP servers. The Email Plugin starts at $195 and is available with 3 different tiers: Single-User, Workgroup (10 users - local use), Enterprise, and Solution (Vertical Market option). If you plan to use the Email Plugin for server-side use of any kind, such as SMS in FileMaker Go, you will need the Enterprise license. This new version, Email Plugin 3.1, is a free update for those currently using major version 3. You can go right to the Email Plugin page and download the current version. Sending costs are extremely low and handled through AWS. The first 100 messages sent to US numbers are free. Messages after 100 sent and any non-US numbers incur a per message charge, pricing can be found in our docs wiki (docs.360works.com). Currently, this charge is less than a penny per SMS. If you would like implementation services, please contact us at infobox@360works.com and we will be happy to take care of the entire SMS implementation process for you or provide a guided walk-through at our hourly consulting rate. It is free to try the Email Plugin. There is a fully-functional demo version available and you can test the functionality in our sample file as well. We value the feedback from the FileMaker Developer Community. Please let us know if there is a feature you would like to see in our plugin(s) at plugins@360works.com "I wanted to publicly thank Sam Barnum from 360Works for OUTSTANDING customer support! I needed to be able to put inline graphics into outgoing "blast" emails for one of my clients. We use 360Works' email plug-in for it's ability to run from a script running in FMPS - these "blasts" go out to a few thousand people and run at night. Sam responded immediately to my request for help, offered to make an addition to the plug-in to handle the inline graphics and built it for me in very short order... So, THANK YOU SAM. And thank you 360Works." ?Mark Woytovich, Ignotum Inc. Free Demo or Download Email 3.1 Stay updated with 360Works
