Push Notification ?
Is there a way to add push notification to a solution that will pop up on FMGO?
Can you describe that in greater detail? Perhaps with an example?
I am using filemaker Pro Advanced 11 a client asked me is their way to be able to push a notification to FMGo or desktop with service info.
FM Desktop assigns Jim a call to service and piece of equipment at location named, the notifications stays on Ipad until OK is pressed.
Emails are not the way to go because of all the junk mail received, i need something that will pop up on the Ipad or iphone indicating a job related noticed has been issued.
It's not impossible, but you won't actually be pushing data to the iPad, you can flag the data in the database for a specific user and then the user's iPad (or computer using FileMaker Pro) can be set up to make periodic checks for such notifications. When this FileMaker script finds such a record, it can bring it up for the user to view.
We do something similar here where a 'weighmaster' fills out a purchase order for a customer's delivery of used beverage containers. When he completes it, he clicks a button to run a script that checks the receipt for completeness/errors then changes the PO's status from "pending" to "Ready for cashier". On the cashier's computer, a filemaker script performs periodic finds for PO's with this status. When the cashier selects and prints the Invoice, disbursing finds to the customer, the status is changed to "printed" so that it is no longer brought up by this script's find.
