We get excited about adding innovation to the FileMaker platform! Today we are showing you how to use machine learning in FileMaker to detect objects, scenes, and images.
This can be useful for FileMaker databases that need to be able to identify objects and characteristics within an image file and report on the findings within the solution.
Joe Martin, Senior Developer and Product Lead at 360Works, is demonstrating the process in the video below. He will be building off of AWS scripts from Jesse Barnum, President of 360Works, from his presentation at the 2018 FileMaker Developer Conference. See Jesse's past presentation and scripts in "Session Materials".

is it possible to append text or images to the end of a loaded doc. (not just another document)-
i.e. something like--
$result=ScribeDocAppend ("new stuff")
it seems the function only looks to append other files, not text
what i need is to be able to add custom text to the end of some documents-
not sure how to do this.

I'm trying to get the Scribe plugin running on my Filemaker Server 17.
But I always get the error message:
Error 474 Plugin could not be loaded: 360Works_Scribe.fmx64
Error 701 The FileMaker Script Engine process was terminated abnormally.
I tried Scribe 3.08 and Beta Scribe-3.08009 but both don't work.
The server runs on a Windows Server 2008 R2 Standard
JRE 1.8.0_171 (32 & 64 bit) & JRE 1.8.0_171 (32 bit) is installed.
The permissions are enabled to full access for "Everyone".
Server restart, reassign permissions and restart services did not help.
Does anyone have any idea why? I can send other log files if needed.
Thank you and greetings
I have a friend for whom I've done a bit of consulting helping him build some project tracking tools in FileMaker. Helped him through the basic stuff around relating tables together, doing a bit of scripting, creating some basic reports based on data he's entered... Well, now he's hooked! And would like to do everything for his business in FileMaker. His current partner does everything in Excel, and has over the years developed a project management spreadsheet he uses to track project funds, activities and generate a financial summary for their clients... Well, now I've been asked to see if it can be redeveloped in FileMaker, because my friend doesn't want multitudes of Excel sheets for every project, that he has to paw through when he wants to pull data for his other tracking tools that are in FileMaker. He'd like to be keeping all the data in one place.
His partner's Excel sheet basically tracks the date of an activity, a note about the activity (what business or consultant or company performed the activity), what kind of activity it is (each spreadsheet for each project may have anywhere from 8 to 16 different kinds of activity) and how much money was associated with that activity (credit or expense). Tracking that is not a tough deal in FileMaker, that piece I've already sketched out. Reporting on it is where I'm having problems, because he'd like FileMaker to produce a report that looks as close to what the Excel sheet looks like, including columns for each kind of activity they're tracking, with activity totals, balances, budget remaining, etc... Where I'm really really running aground is the fact that there may be any number of different kinds of activity going from project to project. Some may have 7 different kinds of activity, some may have 15 or 20.
I've included a sanitized, example version of one of his Excel files. I can't wrap my head around how best to do up a report that doesn't have a set number of fields (what would correspond to the columns in his Excel). I could do it as a great big flat file database and put in fields for every possible kind of project activity, I guess, but.... argh!
I would welcome any thoughts on how a report like the one I've included as an Excel file here could be created in FileMaker... Or if the combined expertise here figures this is something that is best left to Excel (I must admit, my thoughts have drifted that direction as I wrestle with this).
Thanks in advance!
