I have put together what I firmly believe to be a very polished FM solution for IOS and plan to push this to Apple's App store as a first time developer quite soon using Filemaker's SDK/XCode kit. I do realise the complexity behind this, including catering for data protection during version updates, multilingual distribution, security options, etc.
However, my question relates to the legality of:
embedding the Web Viewer Tool in the App which, as a small feature of the App, will automatically search the internet for images based on existing field entries. using Google Maps in the Web Viewer Tool. including YouTube links, on another layout, where I have provided a feature for not only allowing the end user to store their own links to YouTube videos but also intend to pre-populate the App with links pertinent to the App's purpose. The videos would play within the app once selected. No attempt has been made to hide the fact within the App that Google and YouTube content is being used.
I have searched this forum, the internet and some of Apple's and Filemaker's documentation but cannot find any clear statement as to whether such proposed usage is permissible, especially when deploying as an App Store App. The content itself (the images searched for or the videos linked to) is not embedded in the App. Also, would permission necessarily need to be sought from the creators of the pre-populated linked videos?
I would appreciate any advice or reference to documentation which would help to clarify the legality of these matters.
We have need for a filemaker developer/consultant to make modifications to an existing Filemaker 12 database. The database makes use of a number of scripts to "synchronise" records with a second Filemaker database hosted on a windows web server.
Changes to be made to the database include debugging the existing scripts and fixing bad design in the table relationships.
The primary database is hosted in north queensland, Australia. However due to the remoteness of the location we are expecting that it will be necessary to work remotely with a developer. Access can be provided via VNC or LogMeIn. Ideally we'd like someone in a time-zone close to the East coast of Australia (and ideally within Australia), but we are willing to consider offshore developers as well.
I am an experienced web and database developer with other technologies, and I would feel most comfortable with a Filemaker developer who also had experience with SQL databases (I don't mind which ones: SQL Server, Postgres, MySQL, Oracle etc) and other programming or scripting languages in addition to Filemaker.
In addition to a series of one-off changes to the database, we would be interested in someone who can provide ongoing support.
If you are interested, please leave your contact details here, or send me a private message for more details.
I am developing account recovery collection software and have just a few questions, here is the "work flow scenario" - Their are 4 users using web direct that have their own list of records to work. -(SEE LIST OF USERS JPG)
1) - Once a record is worked - the user needs to set a follow-up date 3,5,7 days etc - and when that date comes about the records listed with that date appear first when the user logs in. (Ex. work 10 records today and set followup date for 10/30 - then on 10/30 those records appear first out of the users overall work que.(SEE main Screen JPG)
Hey FM Devs
I am starting a new Filemaker Podcast. Its been rattling in my mind for some time. Its called Filemaker Developer Journal. I want it to be a repository of development discussion and ideas. In this light, I thought it would be fun to discuss various solutions we have created, the process of creating them, challenges and how they were overcome. If you have a solution you would like featured, please let me know. Private message me and we can talk more off line - or mention it here. Or check out the podcast which will launch soon. http://www.humanedevelopment.com/filemaker-developer-journal/
