Title

Sharing a Database with FileMaker Pro

Post

Hi, 

I know this question has been asked before but I never found an answer that helped me out - So here goes.

I have a reallty small database less than 2mb that won't grow much more than 5-6MB.  I need to share it with a colleague - We are not connected at all with the exception of Dropbox.

It seems that that the easiest thing would be put the database in dropbox then write a script that a) makes a backup of the database either in the dropbox or on the local PC and b) sends the other person an email telling them they have the database open.  On exit another email could be sent that says database is open...

Is there an easier way or does this sound like an adequate idea?

Thanks
