What is Studio Manager and who created it? If this is a third party solution, you may need to contact the developer to see why it doesn't work.
one of the lists that is pulled from the FileMaker database
Not having a copy of studio manager, there's no way for me to know exactly what that "list" is and how it was set up. One possibility given that shutting down and restarting updates the list is that this list may be generated via a calculation field that needs to be set as an unstored calculation in order for it to update properly.
Studio Manager is a management solution for businesses. It is produced by the Tokerud Group. http://studio-manager.com/studio-manager-10/ It holds employee, client, and job information in a database.
The list that isn't populating is when a job is created and you are trying to select which employees have been assigned to the job. The list is predefined in the Studio Manager software and was not manually tweaked. Only entries were added to the list.
Exactly how would I change the list to be an unstored calculation?
I don't even know that is an unstored calculation. That's just one possible issue here and we'd have to do some investigating to see if that's the case.
I suggest you contact the Tokerud Group for assistance if possible as they should be familiar with their work and be able to help you.
If they can't help you, then feel free to post back here, but be prepared to describe this issue in much more detail in order for someone to be able to help you out.
