  1. Nevermind all I was a Pandemic moment and wasn't thinking right, it works now.
  2. We have containers that we drag and drop PDFs into, that are externally stored and the field on the layout is formatted as a PDF. I know I've done this in the past where I wrote a little script that sets a temporary path and when it's clicked the enduser can view in Adobe. The script is simple: it sets the a variable to a temporary path, then exports the field contents to automatically open. I cannot get the script to work. It seems so simple... maybe my mind isn't working right today. So my next idea was to make popover button with the pdf container in, interactive so when the user click
  3. The problem is the fields are repeated for each tab panel and they need to be, they are filtered to display for each item (in this case Chimney/Appliance)
  4. We have a lot tab panels with the same information on them and they are filtered. And I wanted to add 1 new field but that would be extremely time consuming, I was looking for a way to speed up the process.
  5. We have a layout that has multiple tab panels, I want to add a field in the same place in all the tab panels at once without clicking on each panel. It's probably simple but I can't seem to figure it out. Thank you for your help in advance! Caroline
  6. Our people out in the field take photos which go directly into the container fields, we would like those photos to automatically transfer to the camera roll/gallery. I know there is an export command and that would allow the techs to export and choose the location, save image etc... But that is a tad too complicated for them. Any suggestions on how to automate this process, the script for export field contents doesn't have a choice to save to camera roll. Thank you! Caroline
  7. 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.
  8. Okay well i have the shortcut app, so I'll try again. Thank you. I just messaged you so just ignore the message...
  9. 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.
  10. 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!
  11. 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.
  12. 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.
  13. 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.
  14. 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
  15. Hey Steve! Not sure how to go about the web viewer for the photos, any insight would certainly help! Let me know. Caroline
