360Works FileMaker Plug-ins
Update available for the entire 360Works plug-in platform providing quality of life improvements
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.
Quality of life improvements made to the 360Works plug-in platform include:
Startup and shutdown procedures have been greatly improved Fixed issues that caused PSOS calls to return "Host capacity exceeded" Fixed issues that prevented plug-ins from autoupdating using the Install Plugin script step Fixed an issue where multiple server side scripts would cause plugin functions to time out Fixed issues related to multi user environments (Server side scripts, WebDirect, Custom Web Publishing) Fixed issues where child processes would not be terminated on shutdown Reworked GUI framework, so that plug-in windows will stay in lock-step with FileMaker windows
While the new minor update for overall quality affects the entire 360Works plug-in platform, specific plug-ins have more improvements for their related technologies:
360Works Scribe Plug-in now compatible with Microsoft Office 2019 360Works FTPeek Plug-in supports TLS 1.2 standard encryption protocol 360Works ScriptMaster updated to use Groovy 2.4.10

HOW DO YOU MIGRATE? FileMaker Migration Assistant Tool vs. Manual: Best Practices to Migrate Changes to a Live FileMaker Server | 360WorksBy 360Works
FileMaker Migration Assistant Tool vs. Manual:
Best Practices to Migrate Changes to a Live FileMaker Server
Tips from 360Works Senior Developer and Product Manager, Joe Martin
In the past, FileMaker developers haven't had many options for rolling out new changes to their live databases. Even if you were cautious, and did your development in a separate Dev copy of your production file, it was difficult to migrate these changes to your production file.
You could roll your own deployment workflow, scripting FileMaker imports for each table in your solution, and update this workflow whenever you added new tables or fields. These imports are slow and tedious though, and most of us would simply make the changes directly in the live file.
With the release of FileMaker 17, FileMaker came out with the FMDataMigration tool, completely replacing the need for using FileMaker native imports to move your data around. Here at 360Works, we built 360Deploy around the FMDataMigration tool to streamline and completely automate its use, making development changes a tedium free experience.
In today's article, we will walk you through how to do both options so you can determine which is right for you.
