Keep your users informed with the use of simple notifications. Using FileMaker and a service called Pushover we can easily leverage cross platform notifications with advanced features like message priority, which allows you to repeat a notification until the user acknowledges it.
When working with large groups of people both in and out of your organization, it can be difficult to keep track of all the discussions between you and everyone else. Fortunately with the 360works email plugin, tracking all emails between you and your system’s contacts can become far more manageable. FileMaker and email integration allow users to view any and all emails that contacts, prospects, salespeople, managers and anyone else have had with one another.
FileMaker WebDirect has been redesigned to be compatible with mobile phones. In the previous release, FileMaker added support for tablet browsers. FileMaker 15 takes it a step further by providing support for mobile phones. Although you could access WebDirect with a phone before, it was not officially supported, mainly due to dialogs being too small for user interaction.
FileMaker changes the licensing landscape again by adding FileMaker Licensing for Teams, or FLT for short. FLT brings simplicity to the FileMaker licensing platform by pricing per user instead of the concurrency model which they are phasing out.
With the release of FileMaker Server 15 comes the ability to track the heaviest client usage periods. This new feature, named the Top Call Statistics Log, gives server and group administrators the ability to pinpoint the client requests that take the longest, allowing them to investigate any slowdowns in their systems much more quickly and efficiently.
FileMaker has made it easier than ever to share data with other apps. With the introduction of app extensions for FileMaker Go we now have the ability to download images, word documents, spreadsheets and even a FileMaker database itself. App Extensions are a way to extend your app, providing users an easy way to exchange files with other iOS apps.
