    FMS 13 Does not save Schedules and Groups when using Google Chrome



      FMS 13 Does not save Schedules and Groups when using Google Chrome


      FileMaker Server



      Operating system version

      Windows Server 2008 R2, Service Pack 1

      Description of the issue

      I clicked Server/Save Schedules and Groups... in Google Chrome but it does not save to Downloads folder.  I searched for the file "fms13_settings" and it is not on the server machine.  However, when I perform the same task in MS Explorer 10 it properly saves the document "fms13_settings.settings" in the Documents folder.

      Steps to reproduce the problem

      1. Open SAT in Google Chrome on Windows Server 2008, R2, Service Pack 1.
      2. Click Server/Save Schedules and Groups...

      Expected result

      fms13_settings.settings file to the Downloads folder.

      Actual result

      no fms13_settings.settings file downloads anywhere on the server.

      Exact text of any error message(s) that appear

      No error message given.


      Use another browser.  I was successful with MS Explorer 10.

               Thank you for the post.


               Using Google Chrome on either Windows or Mac OS X, I am able to successfully saves schedules and groups. 


               To save schedules and groups, using Google Chrome and the FileMaker Server 13 Admin Console, I performed the following actions:


               1. Clicked "Server" in the top right of the window.

               2. Clicked "Save Schedules and Groups…"

               3. Chrome pop-ups a new window and saves the files to the default download location for Chrome.


               From page 24 of the FileMaker Server Help Guide:


               "If the pop-up blocker is enabled in your web browser, a pop-up blocker message may display when Admin Console attempts to open a window. For example, you may see a pop- up blocker message when you attempt to open FileMaker Server Help, Start Page, or Technology Tests page, or when you export the Log Viewer contents. Change the browser’s pop-up blocker setting to allow these windows to display."


               Are pop-ups being blocked by the browser?


          Manage pop-ups for Chrome
