  1. Hello JamesinBoston, Right now, the plugin does not support duplicating records in Outlook at this time. This is something that would have to be done manually. By forwarding the message to yourself, and placing the original email in the folder you want. -PCIPal

  3. KylePMerck, It looks as though you need to include the item ID in each lineitem specification. You may also want to see if you have any success trying with SetVariable calculations instead of using script steps. -PCIPal
  4. Hello KylePMerck, Unfortunately, here at Productive Computing, we don't have a sample file on how to push a purchase order(add or modify). However, if you could send us your xml, we would be more than happy to check it out and see where we can help you on this matter. -PCIPal
  5. Hello Stickybeak, They issue may be because the source location is a Dropbox folder. We have tested with a local folder structure on Mac, with same naming convention, and had successful results. The issue may be in the network connection with the Dropbox server. You may find more success copying the folder to a local temp location, zipping the local folder to the destination path, and then deleting the folder from the temp path. This is a bit of a workaround, but local should be far more reliable. -PCIPal
  6. I have confirmed this does not work! We ran a test and it only added the first two. It looks like only two can be added, and there’s no way to edit a customer to add more contacts. We did some digging and this is actually mentioned in the Intuit Forums as a missing feature. -PCIPal
  7. Hello KylePMerck, The additional contacts would be added as multiple successive additions of the “Contacts” element within a CustomerAdd request. You should make sure the logic of the script isn’t kicking out after two related contacts, and that each Contacts added is done with 1 RqAddRelatedRecord and 1 RqCloseRelatedRecord each. Hope this helps. Please let us know if you have any other questions. PCIPal
  8. Hello Stickybeak, If I could ask for a little bit more information from you that way we could do some testing on our end. If you supply the following: What is the Operating system? What version is the OS? What version is FileMaker? Is FileMaker 32bit or 64bit? What version of the plug-in is being used? Can you provide a screenshot of the values you’re giving the zip function in the demo file? Kind Regards, PCIPal
  9. thieInthiel, Be sure to check that your company file in fact has the custom fields defined. Your scripting is properly making the request, all you would need to do is provide an "OwnerID" of "0" just after the last IncludeRetElement call. Best, -PCIPal
  10. Oliver, The demo file was intended for limited scope use. Unfortunately, there are no other demo files available at this time. PCIPal
  11. Stickybeak, Usually,the dropbox folder is stored in either the main volume (on Mac) or in the “Computer” / “My PC” / “This PC” section of the Windows file xplorer. I would check there and see if you can get the path of the Dropbox deployment for each machine, and then use those in his solution. Dropbox is a bit touchy, and using FIleManip with it might be tricky. PCIPal
  12. Hello KylePMerck, From what you have written, it seems like everything should be working correctly. We recommend checking to see if any recent installations or updates have knocked anything loose. Sometimes, new Windows updates can mess with things we don't want them to. You may also want to try a reinstall of the plugin and/or the U.ARE.U dependencies and see if your reader has any sort of damage to it. PCIPal
  13. Hello Stickybeak, You can try having the GetFiles function in an unsorted calc. You can have the call to GetFiles embedded within the definition of an unstored calculation field, and display that on the layout. That should keep a running list of files, but might also impact performance due to running the calculation constantly. You can, alternatively, have the GetFiles function put in an on-timer script, or as part of a script trigger, so any time you load a specific layout, you get a fresh update of the file list.
  14. Hi Limore, I just answered this question in your other request, using the PCAB_GetListOfValues function from the Address Book Manipulator plug-in. Original post: Thanks! - Chris Turner
  15. Hi Limore, The PCAB_GetListOfValues function requires three parameters: the record type, an indicator of getting either groups or members, and the field to retrieve. In your case, you would use the function call "PCAB_GetListOfValues( "Person" ; "Groups" ; "Name" )", which should return the list of groups names that the person belongs to. Keep in mind that you need to make sure to open the contact record before accessing the list. I hope this helps! - Chris Turner
