Title

Server-side file vs local file w/ external database

Post

I am still relatively new to FileMaker and am trying to reduce a problem that I have noted:

I currently have my solution hosted with a third-party. When using the solution on a desktop, the layouts load much more slowly, as expected.

I am curious if creating a second database file with the same layouts that reference an external database source (the hosted file) would speed the load time substantially.

If so, I imagine this would be quite helpful when working in FileMakerGO under the same circumstances.
