Session Code: COR011
The new “Perform Script on Server” feature gives us a unique way to get at the data that is stored on the server as the user is modifying the same data in their session. Perfect for audit logging. Using advanced scripting approaches, this session will explore new features such as "Perform Script on Server", "List Of" summaries, get(modifiedFields), and a lot of existing features such as ExecuteSQL, GetNthRecord, event triggers and established techniques like "Named Buckets" and "HyperList" A lot of focus will be given to the performance of the various ways of capturing, comparing and parsing data. At the end, we will have a full working audit log approach, fully FileMaker native that also works on FileMaker Go.
