I have all of my credit card payment items in a file with fields for payment date and Reconciled. I enter the payments when I become aware of them and some are entered with a payment ahead of the actual date of entry. I wish to know what my actual bank balance is at any time which means subtracting items not reconciled. I make all entries on my iPhone as they occur and from time to time via Filemaker Go synchronise with my Mac. on the Mac I can run a script that sorts firstly by reconciliation and then by date ascending and this places the itms not yet reconciled at the end making easy to determine the actual bank balance. But when I synchronise that with my iPhone on Filemaker Go, the records are not synchronising in the same order as on the Mac. I would appreciate some help
Is it possible to take photos on your iPhone and in Filemaker Go select multiple images from the camera roll and add them to the database all at once. It doesn't appear this is possible but I thought I'd throw it out there.
Thank you in advance for any suggestions.

I have a script with a single step, attached to a button.
Step: Open URL: "prizmogo://x-callback-url/captureText?input=camera&ocr=el&x-success=fmp://$/MYFILE?/script=Dialogue"
When I press the button, the Prizmo Go application fires up, I take a photo of the text, it recognizes it but the application stays open.
I want to close the application and return the results to FileMaker. What am I doing wrong?
I use Filemaker Pro 14 to communicate with my cabinet shop. I host my databases on a remote server that costs me $55 per month. The total ecosystem consists of three iMacs, three iPads and an i-Phone. The iPads & iPhone are, of course, hooked to the database with FM GO.
I am usually fairly slow to adopt new software and new operating systems for several reasons. For many years I was first in line for every hardware and software upgrade. Over time I accumulated a lot of software and a lot of machines. The machines were always smarter than me and the software plenty competent enough. None of the new features were compelling enough to jump ship from what I was working with. Usually an upgrade on a piece of software required an upgrade to OSX. I couldn't simply upgrade one piece of software without upgrading all of the software and sometimes this meant I needed new work stations as well.
I would be happy with Filemaker 14 for the rest of my life. My CAD software is out of date but I can play it like a piano. I prefer desktop applications over cloud based solutions. I am also getting a little fatigued by everybody having their hand in my pocket for $70 a month. (The software companies seem to have concluded where price elasticity kicks in)
Enough of my rant: MY QUESTION is: Is it possible to add (FM14 compatible) Filemaker Go to to additional iPads if they are accessing FM14 based solutions?
We have Filemaker server, and the techs in the field are sometimes in areas where the wifi/cellular service is sketchy at best. I was wondering what the best solution would be. I guess put the database on the devices (iPads) themselves and then create a script to import the offline data? I heard there are plugins to sync the data with the server.
Just thought I'd throw it out there and see what experience other people have had.
