Session Description

FileMaker Server and Microsoft Office are a powerful combination. Not only does FileMaker Server OAuth support Active Directory, the FileMaker Data API, provides a way to connect custom MS Office Addons directly to FileMaker data.  MS Office Addons are built with HTML and JavaScript, and are embedded directly inside the MS Office suite. In this session, we’ll construct and Outlook Addon that works on Mac, Windows, Web, iOS, and Android, and connects to a FileMaker database to allow viewing and editing data related to the currently displayed email.
