In the last weeks a few people asked about automating web viewer in FileMaker, so here a video to show a couple of features in MBS FileMaker Plugin:
To automate a website, you may first want to inspect it. For that you can use our Form Utility application to show which form fields are available. The application suggests which commands to use to query or set fields. Then you can use WebView.SetFormButtonValue, WebView.SetFormInputChecked, WebView.SetFormInputValue, WebView.SetFormSelectValue, WebView.SetFormTextAreaValue and WebView.SetFormValue to change form fields.
For MacOS and iOS in FileMaker 16 or newer you can use WebView.SetPreferences function to set preferences for developer extras and show the inspector in the web viewer.

NEW 360Works FileMaker Plug-in Update!
Update available for the entire 360Works plug-in platform providing improvements for both macOS Catalina and Windows
360Works plug-ins and products improve the capabilities of FileMaker by adding functionality to the FileMaker platform for sync, email management, web services, payment processing, image and file storage, FTP transfers, Apple/Google/Exchange calendar integration, Microsoft Office document manipulation, and much more.
The team at 360Works strives to provide the best possible service and support to their customers and to always keep their products compatible and flexible.
We have released new versions of the plug-ins within our product suite with improvements for use on both Mac and Windows operating systems:
New signed versions of our plug-ins will prevent macOS Catalina from trying to block it. Plug-ins are now notarized to comply with macOS changes in this update. For Windows users, we implemented better handling of child processes. If there is a hard crash, we detect and clean up java processes left running the next time the plug-in starts up. We improved our plug-in logging which will prevent hangups on background logging threads. For registering our plug-ins, we fixed issues with the registration dialog where the registration would not persist.

New Major Version, 360Works Zulu 4
360Works is proud to announce the release of Zulu 4. Zulu is an application that keeps your calendar events in sync with FileMaker records. It is able to sync with Apple Calendar, Google Calendar, and Exchange Outlook Calendar.
You can manipulate the events in your calendar, and Zulu will write these changes to FileMaker records. The opposite is also true, updates to FileMaker records will be written to your calendar's events. Zulu will even respect FileMaker’s record level access privileges and record locking so you can filter records based on privilege set.
Zulu 4 is better for business! It allows you to integrate your business workflows into the well known calendar interfaces your users are already using on their devices. With the click of a link, a user can subscribe to a new calendar powered by your FileMaker solution.
Apple Reminder Support - manage your Apple Reminders from FileMaker! Use alarms to control native iOS notifications. Use time based alarms to remind people of certain tasks. Take advantage of location based reminders, trigger a notification when a user arrives at a job site, or when leaving. Track completion of reminders, and track when the reminder has been seen by the user. One click URL calendar subscriptions, making it easier than ever to onboard new users. Improved publishing page - some users like Apple Calendar, but some are only on Google? No problem! Drive all calendars from FileMaker. We rewrote the publish page and reworked the publishing process entirely inside of FileMaker. Filter using the same methods provided by calendars, making assigning tasks to users as easy as assigning events! Minimum start date for Exchange and Google supported, so you don't need to worry about ancient events crowding your FileMaker solution. Zulu is easy to install. It is not a plug-in but rather an extension for FileMaker Server. There are no scripts to write or processes to manage. Integrating Zulu into your solution is a snap!
Zulu 4 is available immediately for purchase. Pricing starts at $429 for a Workgroup License. Enterprise License and Solution Bundle Licenses are available for larger scale solutions. There is a free trial version available as well. Discounts are available for education and non-profit organizations.
Additionally, the Enterprise License for Zulu 4 is available in the 360Works Portfolio Bundle. This deal includes all 360Works products at 75% off of the cost of the entire suite of plug-ins and add-ons for FileMaker.
Zulu is a 360Works maintenance product, this means it includes free upgrades (major and minor) for a full year. At the end of a year, you can continue to use the version you have forever, or you can choose to purchase maintenance which includes upgrades (major and minor) for another year. If you choose not to renew maintenance at the end of the year, you will not receive updates (major or minor) unless you repurchase the software at full price. You may sign up to auto-renew maintenance and receive a 10% discount on your renewal.
All Zulu license holders with valid maintenance (within one year since date of purchase) can download and use Zulu 4 at no additional charge.
