Hosting without complete access?

Recommended Posts

is it logical to allow one of our clients to hosts (from their job site) a few DB's for viewing and submitting over the web? What are the downfalls of restricting access from the host computer to Editing only? We really don't want these guys getting in there and messing around just to try and see what filemaker is all about, but they insist that they host it from there.

What are some possibilities? We definitely don't want them to be able to access layout mode, scriptmaker or define fields, and most importantly ACCESS!! (So basically editiing only). What to do what to do?

Shouldn't be a problem. Set the file up the you want it and then set up the password access so they don't have any access to the feature you want controlled. Give the client the limited access password. The file should still host, but they can't mess with it.

Host and guest access priviledges are independent. The host can open the file with no or a low level password, guests can still open the file with the master password and have full access. -bd
