Our people out in the field take photos which go directly into the container fields, we would like those photos to automatically transfer to the camera roll/gallery. I know there is an export command and that would allow the techs to export and choose the location, save image etc... But that is a tad too complicated for them.
Any suggestions on how to automate this process, the script for export field contents doesn't have a choice to save to camera roll.
Hi All and Happy New Year!
We would like to have a shortcut to our database on the iPad, so instead of clicking on Filemaker Go and going to the launch center and it displaying databases., we want the endusers to click on the database shortcut so it goes right to the login screen to make it one step and more intuitive for the users. We have an offline file on the iPad, and there is also the file hosted on the Filemaker. We sync the offline with the online version via MirrorSync. Anyway we trying to eliminate confusion on which file to open.
Thank you, any help is always appreciated!

Prague, CZ — February 25, 2019 — 24U has released 24U Phidgets Plug-In 3.1 for FileMaker Pro 14 through 17. The popular plug-in for integrating FileMaker solutions with hardware devices, such as relays, environmental sensors, RFID, and more, now brings support for iOS and re-designed examples.
What's new in version 3.1
Version for iOS lets custom FileMaker apps control Phidgets directly from iPhone or iPad Better and nicer examples for exploring 24U Phidgets Plug-In even on iPhone or iPad
Benefits of the new feature
Having the plug-in included in native iOS apps allows FileMaker developers to incorporate interaction with Phidgets devices even into custom FileMaker apps running on iPhone or iPad.
The new improved examples let developers easily learn and test 24U Phidgets Plug-In even on iPhone or iPad and better understand how to use it in their apps.
About 24U Phidgets Plug-In:
24U Phidgets Plug-In allows FileMaker Pro to interact with various Phidgets boards to let a custom app control physical devices and physical devices to control the custom app.
24U Phidgets Plug-In allows FileMaker Pro users to:
Read and write RFID tags to track goods, assets and people Capture sensor data to collect environmental data such as temperature or force Control servo motors to automate moving parts of robots and machines Read digital and analog inputs to control your solution by physical controls Set digital outputs to switch lights and other electrical devices Display text on an LCD display to create custom user interface such as cashbox Set analog outputs to control electronic equipment Compatibility with VINT lets you use the latest Phidgets devices
Sample uses of 24U Phidgets Plug-In
Existing customers use 24U Phidgets Plug-in in a wide range of different industries, including compliance testing of electrical equipment, sorting sheep, opening door to gym for customers identified by RFID loyalty card, or robotics prototyping.
“We had a hospital client and we used the 24U Phidgets Plug-In together with an RFID reader for tracking patient charts. The results were quite amazing. Prior to installing this the hospital lost charts on daily basis. When a chart was misplaced it was very difficult to find. The introduction of the chart tracking system meant that everyone knew the location of the chart by looking at the patient screen,” said Joe Byrne, CEO of Glanmire Electronics
For Owen Caldwell, technology manager at Cal Poly Pomona Foundation, Inc., 24U Phidgets Plug-In makes it possible to prepare useful projects for electrical engineering major students. At FileMaker DevCon 2014 Owen said: “With Phidgets we’ve been able to create projects that are not only pertinent to their field but also beneficial to the workplace. We are looking at wiring up the offices to do 3D temperature mapping. With this I am hoping to be able to determine what effect the occupancy of the office has on the overall environment.”

I have read the guidelines for posts in this forum. Therefore I did not enter the Post title that came first in mind: Do I understand portals (aka do I understand Filemaker) and I do not emphasize now on being new in Filemaker issues.
I am trying to achieve something simple at a first step of a big plan: Entering recipes in a Filemaker testversion database.
The longterm goal should be a database in which I can enter my collected recipes.
Followed by tool for a weekly menu plan for my family and a shopping list coming out of the database after taking care of my fridge's stock => so far so good, but currently this is a plan for the next ten years I realized starting with Filemaker.
I searched different apps and database programs, and Filemaker seems to be my solution as I did not find anything that fits exactly my expectations.
So back to the first problem: how to enter my recipes?
I created a table of recipes with an unique ID_pk (I learned already about pk and fk), Name and How-To-Make-it as well as IDs(fk) from the other tables which are Zutaten (Ingredients) with the name and the amount, Form_Zutaten (how the ingredients are used i.e. chopped, sliced, etc.) and Einheit_Zutaten (unit i.e. cup, liter, etc.). Why I have choosen this structure: because all ingredients must be combinable with different units and how the are used. otherwise I have to enter e.g. avocado sliced, avocado mashed, etc. or make rules like liquids can only be liter or mililiter or cups while flour can only be gramms etc.
So a combination of all three tables should be possible.
What I though might be an easy task is to create a recipe layout than with
and a dynamic portal depending on the number of ingredients constisting of:
Zutat - Form - Menge - Einheit
in english: Name of the ingredient - how is it, which kind/form - how much (qty) - which unit
so I related the tables via pk and fk, created the layout and bam: complete disaster.
after needing a couple of days to make the values appearing in the dropdown (learned about the value list), some fields in the portal do show the all entries of the ingredients, while the kind/form and unit fields do always show the first value of the table?
and although I locked the fields, the first entry is always shown and is getting overwritten by the choice I choose from the dropdown...
and nothing is dynamic, meaning that 7 ingredients will make 7 lines and it always starts with one empty line, etc.
I am not sure if my descriptions do make sense, therefore I am attaching my work, hoping someone could help me with how to use the portal for a convenient data entry.
thx in advance!
