Editing a field assignment in Inspector's Field Display data from would be much easier if we could do by just typing into the field, assisted with a auto-complete function as we know with formulas and scripts.
I'm tempted to create another community account just to vote this up twice.
Just another request you would expect a visionary FMI Product Manager would come up without our help
No need to be visionary - you just need to have done some actual, real-life development with FileMaker...
a old request of mine:
All FMI-Employee must do their entire work with FileMakerPro. No Word-Processor, no Excel Spreadsheet and no Calendar SW allowed!
Let the first stone be cast by whoever has never had to deploy an application with less than the complete roadmap already implemented.

No. No. No. FMP is not the solution to every problem. FMP is not a word processor, not a spreadsheet, not a calendar. FMP is a team player, it works with Word, Excel, Cal.
OK, I was wrong: All FMI employee must pass latest FileMaker Certification tests
All I want is they getting some experience as a FileMaker User OR Developer.
You can pass certification without having properly lived through the daily ergonomic realities of FileMaker development. Let them do an internship as junior developers with FBA companies instead!
They should be expected to use FMP whenever that's a possibility. The FMI Sales Team (and who knows who else) all use Salesforce instead of FileMaker. Presumably that's because they feel FileMaker isn't a very good CRM, but I'd like them to tell that to the 90% of my clients who use FMP (at least in part) as a CRM. FMP doesn't make it easy because there is no built-in functionality like Salesforce and other modern databases include (tasks, alerts, workflow controls, calendars, html-formatted emails!, etc.)...but it is doable with plugins and a good developer. They should take THAT as a worthwhile business opportunity!
as we say: "Ingest your own medicine."
