      home inventory template recommendations


           I would like to create a new Filemaker database and am looking for a template. I'll be using FM 13 and FM Go on iOS. Based on the fields below, could someone recommend a template that would fit my needs. In case anyone can also compare different templates, any comparison of the differences would be helpful. I was previously using a database that I created myself in Bento.

           I think it's better to start with a template and then customize it from there. I have enough experience to make some basic modifications.

           I don't expect that I'll need very complicated queries, but it would be nice to know what's possible. I mostly do simple filters by a couple of the boolean attributes.

           The fields that I used in my previous database are below.  ** Notes


                          Date Created
                          Date Modified
                          Who, where ** special field
                          Serial Number
                          Notes ** additional notes
                          Purchase Date

                          Purchased from
                          Purchased with  ** select which credit card from a list or cash
