Me too! We are about to host a similar solution, but we have to iron out this refresh issue with WebDirect before we can do it.
It works great over a LAN, but is painfully slow over the web. If there is a way to configure the layout, the server or something to make it faster or refresh less, I would appreciate the tip.
Our people are around the world, often in developing countries, with vastly different connection speeds. I am not pleased with its performance when I access it here over the web. I suspect our workers in Europe, Asia, the Middle East and Africa will struggle to use it.
I hope we can work out a good solution somehow. I am otherwise really excited about WebDirect. It does just about everything we always wished IWP would do.
With all remotely hosted FileMaker database-whether with FileMaker Clients or Web clients, Less is more.
For best results, keep your layouts as simple as possible and your found sets--particularly if you have summary values or unstored calculation fields, as small as possible.
We turned off the Auto-save feature, and that seems to have given us the help we needed.
