Script steps where a file path can be defined to select a file should be able to use container fields.   Insert file Insert picture Insert PDF Insert Audio/Video Send Mail (select attachment) Import records     Alternatively, and it would even be more flexible and would require less UI change, a new prefix in the existing model (file:,…

Going beyond the current implementation of External Authentication, this idea is to allow authentication against another FileMaker File, so your accounts do not need to be replicated across multiple files in a solution.   This would allow you to gain many of the advantages of External Authentication, while keeping all of the benefits of internal…

Snapshots are a fantastic feature, but its usage is too limited. In many situations, they could be a core component of our solutions if we could control how they open.   The following limitations are there for good reasons but they could be reconsidered in the context of a script step:   snapshots always open in a new window if the target file…

The main point of having a database is to be able to question it and get answers. FileMaker is a great tool to create rapidly powerful solutions for data mining, standardized data to support operations, meaningful data to make business decisions.   But reporting is not just processing and extracting the information; it is, as importantly,…

FM Data API is only supporting single record creation or delete per call.  Creating a record should support an array of records that will post to the same table via the same layout. Same thing for Update.   Delete should support an array of record IDs for delete.

The relationships window content becomes unwieldy in (anchor-buoy) type projects with many graphs.   Tab panels would be a great improvement allowing for organising graphs in panels instead of having only one panel with dozens or hundreds of graphs. This saves time and nerves because graphs can be accessed more quickly through a click on a panel…

This idea is applicable to all windows and selectors throughout FileMaker where field names are not displayed in their entirety. Windows need to be able to resize to display all content or tool tips added to display the full field name. I've have a particular issue with the following scenario:   Adding a new report layout, when 'organizing…

Currently in table view we can only have buttons and popovers in the top and the bottom area. This makes sense for providing functions, that deal with all or many records.   But for example for a button, that changes to form view of the current record, it would be more useful, if the button could be in the table row right beside the record. Same…

A summary of your idea: Add the international format yyyy-mm-dd to the Inspector > Data > Data Formatting > Format popup list This simple and easy to implement change will let the world know that FileMaker is useable by all people on planet earth. Truly it would be a change that would have impacts that span time and place. Background:…
