Session Description

FileMaker databases really live up to their potential when they are used to facilitate a workflow. This session will cover designing databases to be used by people working together in different roles, some adding data, some using that data, and most doing both, at different stages in a process. The session will be divided into two main parts: Data In, which focuses on methods for creating collaborative interfaces for entering data in your database, and Data Out, which focuses on interfaces for finding data, and viewing data in charts and reports. Whether your data is in various "silos", lonely and languishing, or you're building databases to be used by teams with members adding data at different stages and using that data in different ways, this session is for you.
