The more I read about this in the discussions, the more confused I'm getting so it might be best to get clarification.   I want to display a waiver document for visitors to our facility, and let them sign on the iPad. I tried the signature container options but they apparently don't allow the text in the waiver to scroll so most of the document… (Show more)

Hello good people, I'm pretty new to Filemaker so please forgive the naivety of this question:   Using the Asset starter solution,  I'd like to be able to assign an asset to multiple people.   How can I modify the field to accommodate multiple users having the same asset signed out simultaneously?   Thank you for your time in responding to my… (Show more)

Click to view contentThis is a followup on a question I posed before. (Need a Mentor) I'm quite sure I don't understand the relationships well enough, despite YouTube, FTS study, etc.   My goal: A database with Patient information, Assays, Patient-Tests (I'm defining Patient_Test as an assay(aka Test) performed on a patient specimen) and Results (A unique… (Show more)

Hi,   Iwonder if it is possible to pass a STRING to a script when clicking a button. I see that there is a "Optional script Parameter" on the button option but when I tried to put the string, I can't get the string I passed on the parameter. Just need to use the parameter to pass on the script.   Thank you

I have a layout that will contain a simple graphic showing volunteers at our facility how to swipe their ID card at our kiosk. What I would like to do is have the action of the card swipe trigger a script that takes the person to their info page (a separate layout).   The card contains a single piece of data, a volunteer ID number. I think these… (Show more)

Part of an app I'm working on tracks clock-in and clock-out times for volunteers that work in our non-profit. We want to display the total hours for the day when they clock out, but also show a running total of the hours they've worked during the current calendar year.   I have clock in and clock out fields set up as timestamps so the daily… (Show more)

Hi all! I'm using the "maximum" option for a summary field I called Max_CM to calculate the largest number in a field called "CM_Number" in my database. I then use this field in a script which responds to a checkbox being checked. The field runs a script which takes the Max_CM, adds +1 to it, and fills the new number into the CM_Number field.… (Show more)

I want to be able to press a button on a layout and it opens a pdf of a layout preview from a another layout. The user would therefore press a button and a pdf wold pop up over the current layout. How would I go about doing this ? I don't really want to save the pdf but just open it ready to view on the screen. I tried the save records as pdf but… (Show more)

Hi everyone. I'm looking for the best way to filter a portal by a date range of last week - Sunday through Saturday (for our HR dept. to see hours logged by employees the previous week). What's the best way to capture those two dates? I'm thinking they have to be stored in two global calculation fields but I'm not quite sure how to calculate the… (Show more)

This is a beginners tip but others may also find it useful.   If you have a field that is formatted as a %, some people will type it properly, with a decimal point, but others will type a whole number.   To cover both bases, put a script trigger OnObjectExit, that runs the following script called 'SetPercentage'   if… (Show more)
