Summary

iPad Web Viewer Loading Google Calendar Prompts For Mobile Vers.

Product

FileMaker Go

Version

1.22

Operating system version

4.3.3

Description of the issue

When a Web viewer is configured to display a Google Calendar - Google Calendar displays a dialog asking for confirmation that you 'really want to use the Desktop version of the calendar when there is a Mobile version available'. This dialog seems to appear repeatedly for each calendar. If you choose the mobile version - it hangs FMGo. Seems Google cannot distinguish between a Web Viewer running on an iPhone vs an iPad.  It would help if the Web Viewer could optionally announce itself a running on a desktop device. Is there a way of announcing the device via the URL?

Expected result

Ability to configure the Web Viewer to announce itself as running on a desktop device when running on an iPad.

Exact text of any error message(s) that appear

"You are trying to use the desktop version of Google Calendar from a mobile browser. Some features may not work correctly. Would you like to use the mobile version instead."

Workaround

None
