Hi Support team, We have planned to host the 5GB filemaker file in the FileMaker Cloud for AWS. The Cloud backup will be taken for every 20 minutes. We don't need the backup for that 5GB for every 20 minutes. Is there anyway to select multiple files and to take the backup of the selected files only in the FileMaker Cloud for AWS? Please let me know. Thank you, Selvakumaran

"We moved our last rack-mounted server from our office to AWS about eight years ago. Until then, I didn't realize how much time we spent scrounging for space on hard drives, power and network outages, and remote access issues.
Now, I don't have to worry about whether we can keep working
because of a storm or a construction crew cutting our cable,
and working from home is simple no matter where people are located."
- Jesse Barnum, President of 360Works
Getting your files moved from your existing server to a 360Works cloud-hosted server couldn't be easier using our optional full service data migration.

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,

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.
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.

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: 360Works Scribe 4! Experience OCR functionality, PDF merge, and improvements for Excel and Word integration in FileMakerBy 360Works
New Major Version Release:
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
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.
