  1. Just upgraded to FMP 16. Now when I try to log into my solution as an admin by hitting the option key I just go straight into the solution. Unfortunately I go straight in as low level user and not as an admin so there doesn't seem to be an easy way to fix this than I can think of. Any suggestions?
  2. LS, My plan is to let the FMS handle more duties, without overloading the server. For instance 25 PSOS are allowed, so I would like to get the count of those sessions. How do I do that ? I would like to think there would be a simple way to know how many sessions are running and which script they are running. Or shouldn't I be doing this at all ? Regards.
  3. Hi All~ My latest dilemma involves writing a script that will find all the records that were created by a specific user. Basically it breaks down like this: User logs into the database. User wants to know what POs (records in this case) they've made and are still active (Y/N radio button). User runs script that pulls in all records that match these criteria. I can do all that. Easy with one user and one user ID. My issue is that in the script, how do I make a find step that will read the current user? many thanks! I've attached a file with the script I'm trying to make work. This is just a work file. NOT PRETTY! POs test.fp7.zip oh and since it's user specific I had to make each one password protected. the login and passwords are sb/sb once there you can make your own user/password
  4. Hello, I would like to restrict access for a specific user group to records based on a specific value in a field. For example, the field is called Category in the database table Catalogue, and the value is Canadian and is part of a value list. I've gotten to the step of a limited records access which brings me to a boolean condition screen. I'm not sure how to write the Boolean condition. Any suggestions? Thanks!
  5. I have a few employees accessing our database either on the local intranet or via web publishing, each with their unique account. Each one has his/her layout in which to enter data. Is there a way to allow each account user only to be able to access their layout? I have created a layout for each of them with different fields to enter data into. I am having the problem that if I am on the main layout when they open the file, it opens on their computer in the layout I am viewing, and they are not savvy enough to switch between layouts, even with buttons I have created. Thanks in advance for your help
  6. Ok, before I burn thru lots of time (as I've already spent a couple hours...), I was hoping someone may KNOW if you can do peer-to-peer between iPads (3 is the goal) on a closed wifi network (no internet connection)...? AND, if so, could I set it up so that at each iPad a user can log in to show only certain layouts...? Basically, I'm aiming for a mobilized menu/prep ordering system: Cashier + Order Prep Queue + Delivery Queue TIA for any insights
  7. Basically, my database solution is a lead management system, designed to help my sales representatives manage and keep details on leads that my company receives. I don't want my sales representatives to have access to LEADS that they are not assigned to. My solution to this was to have a field in the LEADS table that contains a foreign key from a record in my SALESREPS table. Each LEAD has one SALESREP assigned, and each SALESREP has many LEADS that they are assigned to. My solution works just fine, but I have been trying to figure out the best way to assign a second SALESREP to a LEAD record. Would you suggest adding a second field to the LEADS table containing a second foreign key from the SALESREPS table, or is there a way to do this using records in a join table between LEADS and SALESREPS? The first solution limits the number of sales reps I can assign to a record in the LEADS table (without creating a third and a fourth foreign key field), and the second solution would enable me to assign as many sales representatives to a LEAD as I need. The second solution is preferable, but I wouldn't know where to start with the Filemaker security options to make this work as far as SALESREPS access is concerned. Any input would be appreciated. Thanks!
  8. Hi all, many thanks for reading my post. I am working on a project with my sister who currently builds our databases at work with filemaker. We are working on a website together for release in late 2014 or early 2015. As with all websites, there's a frontend and a backend. We would like to develop the backend "usernames, passwords, user data, dates, times, data fields etc" within a filemaker database (that my sister can build), and then have a professional web programmer build the frontend using javascript or html 5 or something similar. I have a few questions: 1) Is this a stupid path to go down factoring in growth and scalability? If, hypotheically the website grew to 1000's of people a day (I'm sure it wouldn't!) but, would a filemaker hosted (pointinspace.com etc) backend be able to cope with the large amount of information requests from a javascript web frontend in a speedy manner? ie, I wouldn't really wonder why the page took 10+ seconds to load? 2) As 99% of web hosts don't host filemaker files, we would have to split front end hosting and backend hosting between a normal host (bluehost, godaddy etc) for the frontend and a filemaker host (pointinspace.com, worldcloud.com etc) for the backend. Could that be a huge lag potential? 3) If we went down this path, how to the two connect? Is the best connection between a full website and filemaker database just PHP? or are other connection methods preffered from small strings of data (no images etc, just data fields). 3) Should we just grow a pair, give up on FM and develop the backend in MySQL or something similar? We are so close to starting the project, but I'm really struggling to find information on large scale websites that actually host the user data on a filemaker server backend, that get the speeds you would expect from a standard website. Would love whatever help you could throw my way! Many thanks, Simon
