I contacted Filemaker and they say these connections are only on the FM 13 & 14. And that the 8 computers that are connecting to me on Remote using FM 10 & 11 would not be able to connect with FM 13 or 14 if I just upgraded my Host computer.
Therefore I need to look into how I might find a plugin that can act as a middle platform between filemaker & Twilio like they suggested. Anyone know where I look for this type plugin?
I send SMS text messages successfully in FIlemaker 11.
I use the "Go To URL" script step to open the URL that sends the message.
But I use a provider here in Belgium. Maybe you should try to use the simple Go To URL script step to open the URL.
You cant host your file on FIlemaker 13 or 14 and still open it with Filemaker 10 or 11 clients.
Since filemaker 12 the file extention of the Filemaker files has changed to .fmp12 and its not backwards compatible.
I checked on the 360works plugin and this sounds like a way to send SMS without an API account. They say you can send text from Filemaker to a phone number if you have an AIM account. I verified I could send text to my phone number using the AIM app, but have not tried their plugin with FM yet. Hoping to get some feedback from the FM community first.
Here is the reply I received from 360works.AIM app is not involved.You do need to have an aim account, you can sign up here: http://www.aim.comYou would write a script that iterates through a set of customer records and using the phone number on a particular records fire off message using the plugin.The shortest version of the send message script would be:Set Variable [ $sendText ; IM_SendMessage ( “AIM" ; “YourAIMusername" ; “YourAIMpassword" ; “555-555-5555" ; “Hello, blah blah” ) ]
