Our database has properties and for each property there are multiple inspections per appliance, sometimes year to year sometimes quarterly. Anyway, we want the technicians in the field who are using iPads to view the history per property by swiping just to make it simple. Every swipe would be a different inspection for that property viewed in chronological order. Property part is "static" while they "page" or swipe through the inspections.
I was thinking a slide control would work nicely, and each slide would be a different record for that property. I'm looking for ideas to jumpstart my thought processes, apparently my brain is having a hard time functioning today (and it's only Tuesday!). Any ideas would be greatly appreciated!

FileMaker Migration Assistant Tool vs. Manual:
Best Practices to Migrate Changes to a Live FileMaker Server
Tips from 360Works Senior Developer and Product Manager, Joe Martin
In the past, FileMaker developers haven't had many options for rolling out new changes to their live databases. Even if you were cautious, and did your development in a separate Dev copy of your production file, it was difficult to migrate these changes to your production file.
You could roll your own deployment workflow, scripting FileMaker imports for each table in your solution, and update this workflow whenever you added new tables or fields. These imports are slow and tedious though, and most of us would simply make the changes directly in the live file.
With the release of FileMaker 17, FileMaker came out with the FMDataMigration tool, completely replacing the need for using FileMaker native imports to move your data around. Here at 360Works, we built 360Deploy around the FMDataMigration tool to streamline and completely automate its use, making development changes a tedium free experience.
In today's article, we will walk you through how to do both options so you can determine which is right for you.

Wondering if anyone knows what to make of these errors:
Subject: Sync failed for config 'BeFoodSafe5' running on 10.0.4.57

Last sync failed: com.prosc.sync.AbortException: com.prosc.sync.AbortException: Sync was interrupted/canceled while waiting for client to receive HTTP message. Reason: Sync was canceled because the remote user's session expired. This probably means that their device was turned off, lost network access, or exited FileMaker.
Thanks for your help.
I searched what I could but I am completely new to these forums so I apologize if I missed another thread.
My question is whether it is feasible for a FM professional to take over an existing server given how customizable I understand it to be. Also, assuming it is, where would I go about contacting and vetting said professionals?
I can give more information about or specific Filemaker system and current support person as needed.
Thanks in advance
