  1. you need to change the sub summary on the layout to that of the new number field. Then sorting by the ProductType isn't necessary you are sorting by Category and ProductTypeNumber.
  2. Your performance may be increased by separating your solution by area of concerns. You could put all things in one file but there is a point depending on how it's architected that you will experience a performance hit. Area of concerns or audience can be by departments or users who need portions but not all portions of a solution. In some cases I have an Advance Reporting file that branches out to other files because it creates data warehouse or aggregates data for solely reporting purposes. In one case I have a file that is an interface just for a web direct access that works with files that in house folks use. There are theoretical limits but it's just a number as there are so many variables that will play a factor how useful a system is ( number users, deployment, bandwidth, bare metal on server, complexity of graph, legacy left-overs, themes and fonts not optimized etc ) If your already using external authentication then a separate file isn't that hard to add on. otherwise you have to manage users and permissions across files.
  3. We hope you’ll join us in Nashville this August for Claris Engage (formerly DevCon). Unfortunately, the emphasis is on “hope.” We’re watching the news like you are. We’re concerned for those affected by Covid-19, and with the awareness that our event could put any of you at risk, determined to proceed intelligently. Meanwhile we’re seeing many events like ours cancelled, rescheduled, or virtualized. Still we choose to be hopeful because Claris Engage is a vital part of our year and yours. It’s our annual gathering to communicate, learn, and connect. The Claris community is easily one of the greatest partner and developer communities in the world. And now with Connect for app automation and a new FileMaker, we have lots to share. And we believe 2020 will bring a new wave of growth and opportunity to our community. But that best happens when you get a chance to experience the incredible new value we can create – together. So we see Engage as essential for all of us. Looking ahead, although we planned to open registration this week, until we get past this health emergency, we’re holding off. But we're not giving up! There's room for optimism. Many events that are rescheduling are postponing until… August. So we'll spend the next four to six weeks monitoring the news while working to deliver an event valuable enough to make you proud. And we’ll make backup plans. No matter what, we’re committed to the tradition of an annual celebration of community learning and sharing. We’re committed to doing the right thing. Meanwhile, we hope you’ll hold August 3-6, 2020. And so you can plan for it, the pricing for Engage is included below. For those of you outside the U.S. joining us in Lisbon, Sydney, Beijing, or Tokyo, we have a bit more time, but the issues — and our commitment to creating a valuable experience — are the same. Monday workshops: $399 Early bird registration: $1499 Regular registration: $1699 Hotel: $226 per night including taxes and fees We’ll update you all in mid to late April. Here’s to hoping we're together soon in Nashville. Sincerely, Brad Freitag CEO - Claris International, Inc.
  4. Ideally you would click on a button on the message go to a related detail page of the message and have yet another portal to the recipient each person would get their own record - if you intending to send these out then they have an independent timestamp or respond for the target person. You could create some portal or other button bar to add each person to the join table, and a means to remove them from the list (if added in error)
  5. Was looking at the Auth.net API and there seems to be a method to capture a payment and also create a payment & customer profile, in one request. Is this something that could be presented via the Plastic. So you don't have to do 3 separate calls to auth.net? Create Customer Profile Take customer profile create payment profile Take both profile id's and charge profile.
  6. Welcome Jules would you have an example spread sheet you could post to further explain the data set?
  7. sadly no that is not possible things on my wish list for cards... work with WD adjust corner roundness adjust transparency adjust shadow adjust blur for windows in general - ability to adjust existing window to other window styles.
  8. In Catalina the default shell is now zsh not sure if that may alter paths or require changes to original script.
  9. there seems to be some duplicate functions between these plugins Is there any advantage or speed improvements using one over the other?
  10. whoa the is crazy Yes was able to reproduce. wonder if there is a terminal command to see the trash directory wonder if the file gets 'hidden' and then deletes once it gets closed. It is interesting if you delete the file and it is still open - you can still save a copy as...
  11. Create a data entry form use some global fields when you hit the button to add new invoice to the vendor you set the VendorID to a global field then have the user enter the invoice number in another global field use these fields as predicates to the invoice table and do a test to see if Count ( invoice::uuid ) ≠ 1 then it would be safe to add this invoice. The goal here is enter the values in to globals and validate before you actually create the record. alternatively you could create a concatenated field VendorID & "-" & InvoiceNo and then GlobalVendorID &"-"& GlobalInvoiceNo then relate these fields and single equal join link between them
  12. Hi Stefan This is the behavior when a field is styled as a popup menu. And you choose only to display the second field. One caveat about this is if you wish to do a free form search or a search where you need to insert operators. You would really need contact name field on the layout vs the ID field. - typically i have such field stacked but it is only visible in find mode and the other field is only visible in browse mode.
  13. welcome to the forums a field can't have two types of style formatting applied with regard to entry - or drop down you may stack two of the same fields and use hide object when logic to hide the field based on you yes/no field.
  14. I am not sure if this is possible with plastic, you can use it with a mag stripe reader connected via USB. At this time i don't believe Plastic will work with CHIP readers or NFC readers. Some merchant terminals may have some sort of api where that device after payment capture happens you click a button on the computer that which knows the device id and your api key you do a request to there merchant api and get back a result from the recent transaction, including the payment approved amount or if it was declined etc.
