Upload record from FileMaker on iPad to SalesForce.com
We have a filemaker application which we can run on an ipad by using FileMaker Go on the iPad. We want to be able to click a button on the app and have it upload the details to our SalesForce.com account using web services.
I found a plugin for calling web services but I think the plugin only works when you use the app on the desktop, there does not seem to be a way to make the plugin work on the iPad.
Is there anyway to make this work directly on the iPad?
The second thought that we had is that we could connect the iPads to a FileMaker Server and have the server upload the details to a SalesForce.com web service when it was saved. Is this possible? If it is possible would it need to be Server standard or Server Pro?
Many thanks for your advice.
I think I might go down this route: http://www.linearchat.co.uk/2012/01/are-filemaker-plug-ins-dead/
The article suggests that you use a web link to get the data out.
I will create a webpage with a query string that will take the record data and upload it to SalesForce.
