FileMaker keeps you connected to your data [Video]

Hi everybody, and welcome back! This time we’ll be discussing the ways that FileMaker keeps users connected to their important data.

If a user loses his network connection or the server goes down for a brief period, FileMaker automatically makes the reconnection when the server is available once again. Absolutely no data is lost in this time, and people can pick up their work right where it left off.

For the more experienced users, there is a standby server option that allows for the higher availability of crucial data. Should a primary server go down, all of the work can be switched over to a standby server simply by typing in a specific set of commands.

As always, thanks for watching, and be sure to check back here again soon for more helpful FileMaker tips!

How to improve your FileMaker 14 experience with iOS [Video]

Hi everybody, and welcome back! This time, we’ll be discussing how FileMaker 14 allows users to control how their solutions look and run on mobile devices, such as the iPad and iPhone.

FileMaker Go 14 has a new look that reflects the style of the latest iOS operating system. Users can make their solutions full screen through scripts or swiping to hide the interface. This makes it easier to make any necessary edits.

With a script, users can lock to orientation of the layout, in order to build layouts that are specifically for portrait or landscape views.
