    Before you jump into an Audit log...what is your specific need? Why do you need to report changes?

    File could not be created on this disk

    To me, that doesn't look like a complete, valid, file path. Change the script to use get(desktoppath) and see if that works.
  5. And I prefer to use selector-connector and access this table from any context .
  6. Global fields are not a place to store data. Think of them as temp storage. You need to store these "preferences" in a single record table and set the globals from those values or simply set the globals in a script that is called by OnFirstWindowOpen script.
  7. Yes, SMTP sends without showing the mail client. As I mentioned above "Then, the card can have a Send button (calls a script that creates the email record - sends or queues for server sending). " So, the email becomes a record in FM. Perhaps an Activities table.

    Simple Customization of Tasks Starter Solution

    https://www.filemaker.com/partners/find-a-partner/ Also, it's really a lot to ask a developer to work for you and only get paid upon "task completion." Custom software is rarely "complete."
  11. So, the need is to allow the user to create an email that is stored in the database and to either send the email or forget the whole attempt? Perhaps create the email in a card window that uses a utility table (of global fields). Then, the card can have a Send button (calls a script that creates the email record - sends or queues for server sending). Cancel button just closes the card. Clear/set the globals on card window open.

    Calculate to 1, 1st Invoice

    It seems to me that you'll need a table that records customer Id, salesperson Id and invoice Id. That table can also capture commission data: amount due, date paid, etc. . . Call it commissions. If a customer doesn't have a related record in this table, then a commission is due his assigned salesperson if there is also a related invoice. So, I'd have a process that creates a record in the commission table. start by looping through customers that don't have a related record in the commission table. For performance, I'd store the related commission Id in the Customer record. Now you can find all customers that have an empty commission Id and that's the set to loop.
