Portal TimeStamp Problem

Hi,

 

I set up a child table for "Notes" with Time stamps and used four different portals to bring them into the layout of my main table.

For reasons that I cannot figure out the timestamp is not working correctly. I have tweaked the settings to no avail.

After the first attempt, I decided that it must be related to the duplication of the time stamp for each notes field. So I set up independent time stamps for each field. I am starting to think that the problem may be that I can only have one time stamp per table.

 

here is a screen shot of the layout.

and screen shot of table view.

Thanks for advice  :flowers:

Nowhere in your post do you specify the exact problem.

As close as you got was..."For reasons that I cannot figure out the timestamp is not working correctly."

What is not working correctly? Do you not see the expected data in the portals? Is it something else?

Hi mapsgal,

Screen shots do not show file structure. Attach a copy of your file, see how here ATTACH FILE, This will speed up your process of finding an answer.

And if attaching screen shots - isn't  it your pref, Lee, that they not be external links but actual attachments also?

Might also be good when reminding people about uploading their file that they can save a clone if they don't want us to see their data.

My 'guess' at the promblem is that you are saying (as per the table view screenshot), is that each timestamp is identical.  It looks to me that these were set as an auto entered timestamp upon record creation.  These are always going to be identical as they are just that.... a timesamp on record creation.

 

Your different note fields are all on one single record.

 

The way I would have done it would to have had each note as a seperate record, and have a field within the"Notes Table"  called Notes Table::NoteType attached to the button that creates each note type would be set field step which would set the type to be 'Photo Note'. 'Initial Note' etc.  Then you would filter each portal on the layout by this note type.

Hi Bruce,

We prefer all files, screenshots, etc. be posted here so that the complete picture of the need remains intact and to prevent spam: 

    1). it prevents the deletions of linked items once the member has received a solution to their problems, thereby leaving a hole in the thread, where future readers whom might have a similar problem, can not see the whole situation.

    2). it makes the attachments more real, less chance of being caught in following a link to a spam site. 

 

Might also be good when reminding people about uploading their file that they can save a clone if they don't want us to see their data.

 

The link, How to add an attachment to a reply), covers that and some other helpful things. I invite all members to take a look at it and provide me any feedback on it.

      The tables.
      Items::ID
      Items::Item
      Items::Publisher
      Items::Date
       
      The Genre data is already arranged like this:
      Genre::ID (Unique Key)
      Genre::Name
      Genre::Category_ID
      Genre::Category

      The Platform data is 'simple'. ID and Name. But each item could be multiple platforms.  (Example #1 vs. Example #2)
      Platforms::ID
      Platforms::Name
      An item can have multiple Genre Categories related to it, and those usually have a single choice from within their Category, but might have multiples.

      It's supporting the possible multiples that I'm trying to work out. At this point there's 15 possible Genre Categories that each Item could have a selection from. Most have 4-6 of them.

      Example 1: Items::Table on the left, Genre::Table on the right, with some Genre Categories (Genre, Perspective, Pacing, Gameplay, Interface, Setting) and their sub-options.
      This one has just one sub-option per category.

      Example 2:  The Gameplay Genre Category has two sub-options related to it.



      Example Genre Table content:

       
      Just cracking the surface on One to One and One to Many relationships, I don't think this scenario is quite covered this way.

      Would each of those Genre Categories be portals showing only their related category ID?

      I presume that I would add fields to the Items::Table so I can pull related records:
      Items::Platform_IDfk
      Items::Genre_IDfk
      Items::Category_IDfk
      But those only support one relationship.
      Would I make value lists from those Genre Categories and Platforms and set them as tick box fields?

      Gents,
      I use self portal on my Clients layout to serve two things:
      1. display all the records and
      2. quick navigate among them. 
      This portal is not displayed in Webdirect. 
      Is it possible to make it work?

      This should be easy, but my brain just won't cooperate!
      I'm moving a bunch of stuff and want to inventory what is in each moving container.  I have a very simple parent-child relationship with the parent record having the container number and category of parts/equipment/supplies and the child records describe each piece of equipment in the container.  I have a portal with the child records showing for each container, but want to put anatto-entered item number for each piece that has the container number followed by a dash and then followed by a serialized number for each item in that particular container.  For example, I would have container 1 labeled "Glassware" and Container 2 labeled "Chemicals".  In Container 1's portal I'd like to see:
      Item    Description          Qty
      1-1      Beakers, 500ml    4
      1-2      Beakers, 250 ml   2
      and in Container 2's portal I'd like to see:
      Item    Description          Qty
      2-1      Potassium           4 g
      2-2      Sodium                26 g
      I'd like to auto-fill the item numbers, but can't figure out how to reset the serialization for each parent record.
      Any help is greatly appreciated.
      Thanks and keep yourselves safe!

      Hello,
       
      I do want to upgrade from Filemaker Server 12 to version 16.
      At first I've wanted to uninstall v12 but cannot access to the console. 
      I get screen saying "Cannot start the Consol, managing  Admin Server not available?
      Does anyone have an idea of why I cannot start the FMS 12 Consol.
       
      Thanks!

      Yes, I did say iPhone 5 -
      I have a small database i created that has a few portals on different layouts - Everything works fine on my Mac, fine on my iPhone X, even fine on my iPad mini
      However, I need it to also work on an old iPhone 5 and the portal data is just blank - nothing. In fact, I really ONLY need it to work on this old iPhone 5 (This particular database will go to a music festival to be used by several other people and I can't give them my iPhone) 
      I have another layout with different portals that are working on the iPhone 5 - but not this main screen. 
      I have made sure that all of my fields are small and inside the portal. - So, I am stuck as to why? BTW - It is Filemaker Go 16.0.4.456 (The latest version that I can install on an iPhone 5)
