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 ....

      Hi all,
      I have a idea to establish progressive backup on AWS S3 bucket.
       
      Client has a 3GB database (on aws machine) , and I we already use progressive backup in every 5 minutes.
      But, in case that main server crushes down, we have another, backup server, also AWS machine. Now, client wants that in trouble situation, save data as much as possible, and came up with this idea - progressive backup on AWS S3.
       
      Is this possible? Does anyone tried this?
       
      Thanks in advance,
      Ve

      FileMaker DevCon Playlist and Products from 360Works to Help You Work Better
      Tune into Popular FileMaker DevCon Sessions from 360Works
      With more time at home, now is a great time to catch up on past recordings. Did you miss any of the FileMaker DevCon sessions from 360Works? We put together a playlist of our most popular sessions from the past two years so you can learn about FileMaker tools for sync and Amazon Web Services (AWS) tips all in one place.
      Watch the Videos About the featured products...
        360Works MirrorSync
      MirrorSync is an elegant synchronization product that can sync between any combination of FileMaker Pro, FileMaker Go, FileMaker Server, SQL database (MySQL, Oracle, SQL Server, or any database that supports JDBC), Salesforce, WordPress and Amazon RedShift and DynamoDB. For mobile devices, users can sync the hosted file with their FMGo or Pro clients, go off network to make changes, and sync again when a connection is available. For FileMaker Servers, MirrorSync allows a database to run in multiple locations, or to integrate different databases and make sure that changes to each server are reflected in the other server. MirrorSync 6 introduced tremendous improvements for FileMaker Developers such as automatic file transfers between servers, automatic version updates between servers, safer synchronization process, better handling of large files, and easier migration.
      360Works Zulu
      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 4 introduced improvements specifically for business workflows such as new support for Apple Reminders within FileMaker, one-click URL calendar subscriptions and improved publishing page for user-friendliness, better event handling, and improved filtering.
        You May Also be Interested in: 360Works Scribe
      While there was not a session for Scribe, we thought it was worth mentioning because of the overwhelming positive response we received for Scribe 4, which introduced OCR to easily scan documents in FileMaker and merge or splice PDF files in container fields. Scribe has always been able to automate processing of Microsoft Office and PDF files. It continues to allow you to populate forms, insert images, highlight changes between versions of documents, manipulate Microsoft Word and Excel tables, retrieve metadata from Excel table cells, and secure PDF files.

      New Major Version Release:
      Scribe 4!
      We are excited to announce a new major version of a popular 360Works plug-in, introducing Scribe 4! 360Works Scribe is the ultimate document automation plug-in for FileMaker; it allows integration with Word, Excel, and PDF documents. In this release, we are taking it to the next level by adding in the ability to read your scanned documents, such as receipts, forms, or contract PDF files, with OCR (Optical Character Recognition) functionality. Additionally, we added features to allow you to merge PDFs and get meta-data from them, plus multiple fixes for existing functionality in Scribe.
      New OCR Functionality
      Scribe 4 ships with brand new OCR functionality to read your scanned documents and extract text to be added into FileMaker. For example, a law firm can scan in loads of paper legal contracts and have the text extracted and imported into the appropriate FileMaker records! Scribe leverages the technology of Amazon Textract which goes beyond simple OCR by not only extracting text but also identifying key information like the contents of fields in forms.

      Click here for a cool demo file showing how to use this new OCR functionality in Scribe!
      New PDF Merge Feature
      We added two new functions to merge and manipulate PDFs with Scribe. For example, if you have a couple of PDFs stored in container fields, the new function ScribePDFMerge allows the two PDFs to be merged together. The new ScribePDFSplice function allows a multi-page PDF to be split up into smaller PDFs. This is beneficial if you have containers with multi-page PDFs, and only need to utilize a specific part of the entire PDF file.
      Get PDF Meta-Data
      You can now get meta-data about a PDF, such as the name of the author and page count. The new ScribeGetPDFAttributes function will return various meta-data about a PDF. This can be helpful if you want to have FileMaker manage PDF files according to the author or number of pages specified in the meta-data.
      Multiple Improvements to Existing Functionality
      We also made several upgrades to the existing Scribe functionality. When using Excel with Scribe, the Excel cell reading and writing images to Excel cells has been greatly improved. We also made fixes for the ScribeDocSubstitute function for replacing a value.
       
      Try or Buy Scribe 4
       
      Availability
      Scribe 4 is available now at the Scribe product page. Active maintenance subscribers for Scribe or the 360Works Portfolio Bundle can download new major version 4 at no additional cost. All purchases within the last 12 months are still under an active maintenance subscription. If the maintenance on Scribe has not been renewed within the last 12 months, you will need to purchase a new license to use Scribe 4.

      For new license purchases, we have several license types available based on number of users, client-side or server-side usage, and a solution bundle license for developers with a vertical market solution.

      A free, fully functional demo is available to test Scribe. While in demo mode, Scribe will run for 2 hours every time you launch FileMaker (or FileMaker Server, for server deployment).

      Full pricing, license type information, and the demo version can be accessed at the Scribe product page.

      Hi,
      Could do with some advice please, i am just playing with the cloud mail plugin, i am trying to install the plugin on the server.
      I have copied both the FMX and FMX64 files to the following location, but it doesn't seem to register the plugin when I open the provided database, instead it asks me to install the plugin locally.
      C:\Program Files\FileMaker\FileMaker Server\Database Server\Extensions
      Is this the correct location ?
      Thanks.

      My users like using a FTP client as they can upload files "in the background" and keep working in FM. When I want them to upload the files straight through FM, I get compliance issues because of this (files could be 500Mb). If the file is already on the FMS I do PSoS, but when it's on the client desktop using FM will block them from working in FM during upload.
      Is there a good way to achieve uploading from the client in the background, without blocking FM?
