CloudMail attachments

Recommended Posts

OK - we now have a working CloudMail solution that sends any number of emails with attachments (as URL links). 

 

I have two minor issues with it:

1/ Any images that we use on the HTML email (which are uploaded as attachment files, but not specific to each 'campaign') if we use as HREF links, don't work. If I check the message source the URL is there but it is prefixed and suffixed with a pile of coding which messes up the link. e.g. <a href=3D=E2=80=9Dhttp://momentumski.com/=E2=80=9D>. Any ideas what the E2=80=9D is all about?

2/ The attachment link, which is automatically uploaded prior to send the email opens in web browser. I would like to force this to download which I can do by changing the PDF file metadata to Content-Disposition:attachment on the AWS S3 file storage. I know that it is possible to assign this during the upload to the AWS server, but I don't know if the 360works CloudMail plug-in can manage it. Any ideas?

Many thanks - almost there ....

      Hello Everyone,
      We are planning to use FileMaker server 17 on AWS. And for client, thinking of using AppStream 2.0.
      I would like to know if there is any sort of issues using Appstream 2.0, means, performance issue or any limited functionality.
      Also would like to take your suggestions, instead of using Appstream 2.0, is there any other solution or way to connect filemaker apps hosted on AWS.. without installing filemaker client on user. machine.
      Thanks in advance.

      Updated file management plug-in is compatible with FileMaker 18 and sets movie metadata.
      Alphen aan den Rijn, the Netherlands, May 22, 2019–Troi today announced the immediate availability of Troi File Plug-in 11.0 for FileMaker 18.
      What is Troi File Plug-in?
      Troi File Plug-in is a very powerful tool for getting access to information outside the FileMaker database. Any files or folders stored on the computer can be accessed through the functions of the plug-in. All from within FileMaker you can:
      get data from files that are on the disk of the computer into FileMaker create files anywhere on the hard disk and put data from FileMaker fields into them manipulate files and folders on the disk: this includes creating, deleting, copying, moving and modifying files and folders get the size on disk, creation and modification dates and much more launch and reveal files directly from FileMaker manage your images and movies, including reading and writing metadata What is new in version 11.0?
      Troi File Plug-in 11.0 has the following new functionality:
      Tested and made compatible with FileMaker Pro 18 and FileMaker Pro 17.0.6. Added new TrFile_ExportToFile function, which can save container data to disk. This function can also be used on FileMaker Server. Added a new TrFile_IsFree function, which can be used to determine if a file is in use by a different application (or locked). (macOS) Added a new Set MetaData of Movie script step and TrFile_SetMovieMetaData function, which can add metadata to movie files (like .mov and .mp4). It can add and change metadata like title, GPS and creation data. (macOS) Improved TrFile_CreateThumbnail function and the Create Thumbnail script step: you can now create thumbnails of movie files (like mov, mp4 etc). The plug-in creates a thumbnail of the first frame of the movie. (macOS) Prepared the plug-in for notarization: the plug-in can now be added to a runtime, to create a hardened FileMaker runtime app which can be notarized by Apple. Notarization gives users more confidence, as the runtime has been checked by Apple for malicious components. (Windows) Improved the TrFile_ExecuteShell function and the Execute Shell script step. If you use the switch “-Encoding=UTF8” the plug-in now indicates invalid UTF-8 characters with the string <INVALID UTF8>.Also Improved the ExecuteShell.fmp12 example file, you can now specify the encoding of the result of the command. In Troi File Plug-in 11.0 we also made the following changes and improvements:
      IMPORTANT (macOS only) The minimum supported FileMaker version is now FileMaker Pro 14. Also the minimum supported Mac OS version is now OS X 10.10 (Yosemite). You can keep using v10.2 for older versions of FileMaker Pro or Mac OS X. (macOS) The plug-in no longer has the 32-bit code included. Improved the initialization when installing the plug-in with the FileMaker Pro “Install Plug-In File” script step. Updated the EasyInstallTroiPlugins.fmp12 file, it can show additional error information from Get(LastExternalErrorDetail) when running on FileMaker Pro 18. The EasyInstallTroiPlugins.fmp12 file can also run a test registration script for a plug-in after you have installed it on FileMaker Server. Updated the example files for FileMaker Pro Advanced 18 and made small corrections to the user guide. Fixed bugs in several functions. More detailed information on all changes and improvements implemented in Troi File Plug-in 11.0 can be found on the File Plug-in page.
      Pricing & Availability
      A fully functional demo version of Troi File Plug-in 11.0 is available on the File Plug-in page.
      Licenses cost US$ 99 per user. Details on developer licenses and multi-user discounts can be found on the File Plug-in page. You can order licenses there or from our shop.
      Upgrade information
      Version 11.0 needs a new registration. The upgrade is free for users who bought a license for Troi File Plug-in on or after May 15, 2018. Eligible users will be sent a new registration. Contact us if you have not received yours after May 29, 2019.

      As you know, we get excited about adding innovation to the FileMaker platform. FileMaker is the world's leading Workplace Innovation Platform and at 360Works, we enjoy finding new ways to extend its capabilities.

      Today, we have part 2 of our content series on Machine Learning in FileMaker using Amazon Web Services (AWS). We are highlighting how to detect text and faces found within an image in this video.

      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".

      Most of us in the FileMaker Community are well aware of how to run FileMaker Server or FileMaker Cloud on Amazon Web Services (AWS), but we can do more!

      At 360Works, we believe in outside-the-box thinking to continually push the FileMaker platform to places it has not yet been.

      For this reason, Jesse Barnum, President of 360Works, spent time developing new and innovative ways to integrate the AWS multitude of services into FileMaker.
      At the 2018 FileMaker Developer Conference, he presented on how to interact directly with AWS Web Service APIs, signing AWS calls (authentication), and specific demos of:
      Kinesis: how to make record changes to FileMaker records with a single HTTP request (audit logging without the increased demand on FileMaker Server) SQS:message queuing service Transcribe: voice and memo recording that automatically gets recorded in your solution as text S3: file uploads/file management Athena: run SQL queries against audit log data stored on S3  
      Here's what the FileMaker Community thought of the DevCon Session:

      "Demonstrating the real reach of FileMaker's ability to integrate with other services. Power indescribable!! While a lot of the session covered things that were beyond my skill level, but I left feeling like I could learn it!"

      "Introduced new tools I can take advantage for my customers"

      "This was the best session of the entire conference. I highly anticipate anything from Jesse Barnum in the future."

      "Jesse may be the consummate presenter. Great material, expertly delivered. Incredibly worthwhile session. Thank you!"
