Document Management Features without FileMaker Server

Many small businesses take advantage of FileMaker Pro’s ability to host up to 5 clients from a copy of FileMaker Pro, rather than invest in the more pricey FileMaker Server. Recently, I encountered just such a client who wanted to add some document management features to their solution and I wasn’t sure they would be able to do this without investing in FileMaker Server. Since I had already raved up FileMaker Pro 12/13’s greatly improved document management capabilities, I decided to dig in and see if it could still be done using just FileMaker Pro clients.

360Works SuperContainer - FMT Featured Product

This week our FMT Editors "Product of the Week" is 360Works SuperContainer. We call it the FileMaker Container Field on Steriods and FileMaker 13 Ready! I f we had to rate this product on a scale of one to ten...it gets a ten. SuperContainer is the easiest way to upload, view, and download files to and from any FileMaker database, plus it offers numerous advantages over FileMaker's built-in container field: faster speeds, smaller file sizes, web browser uploads, and cross-platform file path compatibility.
