    IWP - "tickle file"

      Summary

      IWP - "tickle file"

      Description of the issue

      Has anyone been able to create a "tickle file" functionality within IWP, so that upon log in a user is prompted with a date based reminder, (dependent upon user account data of course) lets say to pay a bill? Would sure like to see email functionality in IWP.  Thanks in advance. unc12

          One of the options when opening a database file is to execute a script.  You can therefore create a script that will find records for "today" using the Get (CurrentDate) function.  If you haven't set up a script before, let me know, and I'll help you with it.

           

          The Send Mail script step is available in FileMaker Pro 10 for Instant Web Publishing.

            Thank you. 

             

            I will investigate the IWP email functionality in FMP 10, in trial mode. New to FMP. It took some time to build the solution and do not want to risk any glitches which may occur from morphing to FMP 10.
