A customer of mine runs a mainly Windows environment.
They have troubles with Java to log in the admin console. The Windows (Server and clients) supporter has not the time to update the server and the clients at the moment (the licences are available). He thinks, updating the server in a first time and run the solution with FileMaker Pro 11 clients could do the trick for the moment.
Will that work? Should I ask him to give updating to 11v5 Server one more chance?
Thank you for your feedback
I am using FMP 11. I have several scripts, I am building a database to track tech issues. The core of the database functions great. However I would like the database to send formated email when certain things are done. IE: If a date is put in a field, a name, or clicking a button. I tried to set this up, using the email client, and I can somewhat do it successfully with my information. But when I try to pull the information from another database (one I created with the persons first name, last name, and email address - plain and simple) it will not pull in the persons email address. I am guessing that I have them related correctly, and or that I am just plain way off base. I am having it pull from a reported by field for the email address - which is connected to the email address database. (Geesh this sounds so complicated).
SO I guess what I am asking is how do I have the database send an email - use a pre- created email (one with information pulled from the database - does not have to be fancy) then use the correct email address, when a button is pushed, a name is put in a field, and a date is inputed.
Also Is there a way I can create a form for the email? pulling info liek name, dates, times, notes etc?
I am creating the database based off of a template from Web Help Desk (which I love Love Love, but my boss more than likely will not allow it due to costs.). Help?
