Customized Around You. Every organization is unique and, in turn, needs a database system to support your unique processes. However, organizations oftentimes use off-the-shelf software that forces you into  adjusting your workflow to fit the program's one-size-fits-all system design. Other times, businesses use a mix of spreadsheets, email, paper files, and accounting software that eventually leads to a lack of transparency and redundancies that becomes difficult to manage as an organization grows.

What we do differently is we design and create your system around you. You will emerge with a faster, more efficient, scalable database that runs smoothly and provides a platform for future business process improvement. Your database solution will become a value-adding asset that is an integral part of your organization.

How to use the new FileMaker iBeacons w/ example file

FileMaker 15 provides us with the ability to interact with iBeacon devices using FileMaker Go. This means with some setup we can associate data in our FileMaker solution with physical locations and have our iOS devices access them via the iBeacon technology.

FileMaker 15 has Landed

The new version of the FileMaker platform is here! We’ll look in depth at what’s new in FileMaker Pro 15, FileMaker Go 15, and FileMaker Server 15. We have highlighted many of the best new features with ten detailed articles provided by our staff looking in depth at each of the features. FileMaker announced they will release new versions every year, resulting in shorter release cycles that’ll bring innovative new features to us faster.

FileMaker Google Calendar Integration

The first step of this integration is to create a project in the Google Developers Console. Once you have created the project, you will then need to enable the Calendar API. This will take you to a setup process where the API will be managed. We will be using HTTP requests, so you will want to mark that the API will be accessed via a web browser client and that you will be accessing user data. You will also need to set the redirect URI to https://google.com or any valid website. This is only used as a landing page for authentication and does not need to be anything special. Once the Client ID has been created, copy the Client ID and Client Secret into your solution. Keep your client secret hidden from the world as the combination of the Client ID and Client Secret will be used to authorize your solution to make changes to the end user’s calendar.

FileMaker Google Calendar Integration

Having your own calendar inside of FileMaker is a great way for you and your coworkers to keep track of upcoming appointments. However, building your own calendar in FileMaker is a very tedious task. Why reinvent the wheel when there are already apps out there that you can integrate with? I will show you how to connect your FileMaker solution with Google Calendar to take advantage of this powerful calendar and all of its features.
