  1. Hey Steve, Happy New Year! I just downloaded it now and will try it, although it's looking for a plugin. Anyway I got the shortcut to work on the Home Screen with the URL but can't seem to use our custom icon that displays on our database. Only the list of Glyphs that are already installed.
  2. Okay well i have the shortcut app, so I'll try again. Thank you. I just messaged you so just ignore the message...
  3. The database is on the iPad, so I'm not sure I understand. Maybe my thought processes are still sluggish from NYE! Lol I put the URL in but it doesn't find it.
  4. Hi All and Happy New Year! We would like to have a shortcut to our database on the iPad, so instead of clicking on Filemaker Go and going to the launch center and it displaying databases., we want the endusers to click on the database shortcut so it goes right to the login screen to make it one step and more intuitive for the users. We have an offline file on the iPad, and there is also the file hosted on the Filemaker. We sync the offline with the online version via MirrorSync. Anyway we trying to eliminate confusion on which file to open. Thank you, any help is always appreciated! Caroline
  5. That is a good idea! That is a good idea as well and I use that method on another "list". I Filemaker (Claris) would change the way the value list work with the sorting function.
  6. That would be the easy way and elsewhere on the layout I use the method you suggested. But they are short on space on the layout.So I was trying to accomplish this with one field.
  7. Maybe I didn't explain that correctly. The purpose of the value list is to choose a project type for the estimate, which they want displayed in specific order (not alphabetical) based on numerical order they have determined. A simple value list.
  8. The problem is I have a value list that is based on 2 fields from another table, the first field is Order and the second is the Description, but it only populates with the first field which is a number and doesn't make sense. We need the description. I've had this problem before and worked around it, and I wish there was a simple way to solve this. So I made a calculation that concatenates the 2 fields for the value list, and the script trigger sets the field with the description without the number included (the script trigger does other things as well). But I realize not all of the value list is sorted correctly because it's a text field. Maybe a new calculation? Sorry for being long winded, any ideas on how to resolve this issue would be appreciated. Caroline
  9. Hey Steve! Not sure how to go about the web viewer for the photos, any insight would certainly help! Let me know. Caroline
  10. Is it possible to take photos on your iPhone and in Filemaker Go select multiple images from the camera roll and add them to the database all at once. It doesn't appear this is possible but I thought I'd throw it out there. Thank you in advance for any suggestions. Caroline
  11. I'm trying out MirrorSync so when the guys in the field have no internet access they can work on an offline file and sync when back with access. I had success with testing on our solution, but not consistent success. When I download a link to email the guys so they can access the offline file, I get this error message: C:\WINDOWS\Temp\CloneDownloads-9\2019-07-23_1041\Databases\RC_Data_FMS (Access is denied). The container fields use external storage. The download link worked a few times and created a zip file that included the database solution and the directory with the images. I was able to sync successfully. But the download link did not work correctly. I did try to reuse the link that had worked at one time but it generated the same error message, even on a MacBook pro. I did talk to someone at 360 Tech Support (they were very helpful), so I sent a bug report to them.. Oh the other thing it does besides the Access denied error message when trying to access the link, it will simply say download failed. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you! Caroline

  13. We have a script that emails automatically, it uses the send mail by SMTP, we would like the logo in jpeg format to be embedded. The script is trigger when the status changes, so the SMTP is the best solution. Maybe I am missing something but I cannot see how to do this, we don't want to have to use a plugin. The body of the email is basically a calculation putting together fields based on the customer. Attaching the logo does not produce the desired result. There must be a work around... Thank you in advance! Caroline
  14. @mr_vodka Thank you for the information. I will look up the reviews. Have you had any experience with the this products?
  15. A lot of ideas, I did look at the video referenced by Fitch. And triplicating every field as global fields sounds a tad overwhelming at the moment. I need to tackle this today so I'm debating my options. So when you say using a dummy slide control to go to previous/next record, I imagine that means just a button to touch to move forward & back. Gosh they really want to swipe (Lol)
