It is really nice to see MainSpring coming out with video! It this tutorial one of many we hope to see come, MainSprings Ryan Klenk walks you through building a simple alert (or dialog) in FileMaker 16 in about five minutes. Creating an alert using this tutorial allows for more flexibility, both in terms of appearance as well as follow-up actions available for the end user.
The reasons for building an alert into an application vary greatly depending on each individual need, but here are some basic examples:
- Notifying or reminding the end user about a task assigned to them
- Notifying the end user about an update to the application
- Notifying the end user about a message from another user
