New MirrorSync Update Now Available
50 Improvements Made in MirrorSync 6.1
360Works releases new point update for MirrorSync with 50 improvements and fixes to optimize FileMaker synchronization.
360Works MirrorSync is the fastest and easiest synchronization tool for FileMaker. It allows everyday FileMaker users the power to synchronize their FileMaker Server files with FileMaker Pro, FileMaker Go, other FileMaker Servers, SQL databases, Salesforce, WordPress, Amazon Web Services Databases (DynamoDB and Redshift). MirrorSync was awarded FileMaker Solution of the Year in previous years and the product continues to be known for its scalability, reliability, speed, and ease of use.
The latest update, MirrorSync 6.1, ships with 50 improvements and fixes. Here are some of the newest improvements by category:
Container Fields and Large Data Improvements
Optimized conflict resolution field merging; now about 100x faster for large tables! Now supports streaming for container uploads, so that you can sync any size container data (such as large video files) without running out of memory in MirrorSync Improved performance when syncing large numbers of fields (>500) Now truncates extremely long container filenames (converting a text field to container fields causes the text contents to also be used as the container filename, which can be too long to be practical) Performance improvements for configuration client Important fix: removed a deadlock that could occur when inserting large number of records that contained unusually large text data as well as container data
Syncing with Non-FileMaker Databases Improvements
No need to do any time zone conversions when writing time and date values to Salesforce, you can now send them unmodified Improvements were made to SQL generation for syncing to a non-FileMaker SQL spoke database, such as MySQL or SQL Server Performance improvements for DynamoDB; prevented unnecessary update operations if fields are added or removed from a configuration
FileMaker Server to FileMaker Server Sync Improvements
Improvements for externally stored container fields that have an .fmp12 file in them when transferring from hub to spoke during server-to-server syncs Much faster transfer of large multi-file solutions between servers for initial server-to-server syncs
Improved responsiveness on the configuration screen where tables, scripts, and layouts are copied and pasted Added extra information at the top of the sync status that always shows the name of the configuration and a description of both the hub and spoke databases Exporting a configuration from server A and importing to server B will now automatically change the configured MirrorSync URL to server B Smarter switching between using the internal and external IP addresses on the sync. This should make it so that syncing from outside the LAN is about 5 seconds faster, if there is a separate internal and external address configured. We now keep a history of all configuration changes, in case any issues arise
Improvements for Keys
If you're using UUID primary keys with unique validation enabled, and if you change validation to 'always' (this is not set by default), then MirrorSync will automatically re-write inserts as updates to avoid duplicate records, or error messages about duplicates. Improvements to detection for foreign keys, as well as skipping over any foreign keys referencing tables or columns that are not part of the sync. Improved validation for foreign key configuration Fixed a problem when using custom text primary keys of varying lengths (not UUIDs or serial numbers, which work fine without this fix). If the column that a foreign key is based on is excluded from the sync, the foreign key is now removed from the configuration and skipped
Improved Error Reporting
Improved error reporting to users if the sync fails due to a permission error or timeout [Worker script] Many improvements to automatically handle and retry network problems; better logging to identify problems caused by slow networks [Worker script] When the offline file has external data sources pointing to non-existent files, MirrorSync responds with better error reporting.
Additionally, we have added support for configurations and synchronization with FileMaker Cloud 2 (Please note: due to the limitations of FileMaker Cloud 2, it is not ideal for synchronization. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org for additional details if you plan to use FileMaker Cloud 2).
Visit the MirrorSync changelog for the complete list of all 50 improvements and fixes available in 6.1!
MirrorSync allows users to work on their own offline copy of a database on their iPad, iPhone, or laptop computer, even when they have slow or no connection to the internet when working from home or out in the field. It can also be used for server-to-server syncing between servers in different locations and with other distributed server models (i.e., clustering, load balancing). MirrorSync documentation for further information is available at the 360Works Documentation Wiki.
MirrorSync Hosting and Consulting
We offer both FileMaker Hosting and MirrorSync Hosting. If you host FileMaker with us, you get MirrorSync hosting free!
*Purchase of MirrorSync licensing is required. MirrorSync is completely free to sync FileMaker Server with FileMaker Pro or FileMaker Go with one device. Any additional configurations or seats are purchased as needed.
Users running regular FileMaker Server on a Mac or Windows computer can install MirrorSync on their own server.
We've designed MirrorSync to be something that even a novice user can integrate, but we're standing by when you need more advanced help. If you just want your sync integration to be completed as quickly as possible, we're available to do the work for you directly at our hourly consulting rates. Simply contact us to get started!
Purchasing and Upgrading
Existing MirrorSync 6 users can now upgrade to MirrorSync 6.1 at no additional cost. For users new to MirrorSync or past users with expired maintenance (maintenance expires one year after purchase date if not renewed), now is a great time to purchase a new MirrorSync license.
If you need to check your maintenance on your MirrorSync license, visit the 360Works License Portal page. If you need to renew your maintenance or buy a new license, visit the MirrorSync product page.
As always, MirrorSync is completely free to sync FileMaker Server with FileMaker Pro or FileMaker Go with one device.

Email, Scribe, and FTPeek FileMaker Plugins Have New Updated Versions with Improvements
Learn about the new updates available and download now!
Last week we were excited to announce that all of our plugins are compatible with the new FileMaker 19 platform!
This week, we have additional feature enhancements and improvements specific to three of our most popular plugins: 360Works Email, Scribe, and FTPeek.
While these are minor updates, we encourage you to update now for the best experience using each plugin.
Download new plugin versions and check out the latest improvements using the links below!
360Works Email Plugin (Version: 3.316) - FileMaker plugin for sending and receiving emails using IMAP, SMTP, or POP, plus adds sending SMS/Text Messages from FileMaker capabilities.
Added "attachmentsDir" parameter to EmailReadMessages, allowing users to specify a local directory where they want attachments downloaded. Downloaded attachments are now deleted when EmailDisconnect is called. Implemented a fix for some rare DHC issues that were occurring. Improved inline attachments in emails for better downloading. Reworked the "secureconnection" parameter. SecureConnection will now set both ssl and tls to true. However these can be set individually with "ssl=true" or "tls=true". This resolves issues with certain mail servers that require tls, but reject ssl. IMAP servers better retrieve the messageId and better loading of body structure in messages. 360Works Scribe Plugin - (Version: 4.0710) - FileMaker PDF plugin, OCR plugin, Microsoft Word and Excel integration - all in one.
Improved how keywords are being pulled from PDFs. Improved Windows file-locking, temporary files are now deleted when ScribeDocCancel is called. Better conversion of Excel files to text with merged cells. Improved Textract results downloads for better accuracy. Improved inserting images into Excel documents. 360Works FTPeek Plugin - (Version 2.305) - FileMaker plugin that can upload, download, and manipulate remote files on an FTP (File Transfer Protocol) server.
Updated FTP libraries, resolving some connection issues. Reworked the Forcetrust parameter on FTPeek_ConnectFTPS. It should now accept most invalid certificates.

I'm new to 360works so I'm using the demo version of Scribe.
I have a problem with the plugin. The plugin seems to only load one document.
When I tried loading other document .docx it would always load the first document.
It seems that it loads the first document and keep it as a copy in the plugin and re-use it again and again.
Is it because I have a demo version?
