      Summary

      Save as PDF works in local file, hosted, file is created properly but won't attach to email

      Product

      FileMaker Go

      Version

      12

      Operating system version

      ios

      Description of the issue

      I have a local file that I have a report creation script that saves records as a pdf, then creates an email, attaches the pdf. Works fine on local file, but as soon as I login to file when it's hosted/shared the pdf file will not attach. Email comes up with text but no attached file. The pdf is created, because I see it in my files list, it simply does not attach. I currently use the following as the file path:

      file:InspectorGOResidential.pdf

      Is there a better prefix or file path option needed. I will strictly being using this application on the ipad and iphone.

      Steps to reproduce the problem

      open filemaker go
      connect to shared file InspectorGO
      go to inspection record
      click on button to run script
      script generates pdf, does not attach to email, but does follow script path and inserts the file into a container field

      Expected result

      open filemaker go
      connect to shared file InspectorGO
      go to inspection record
      click on button to run script
      script generates pdf, pdf file attaches to email.

      Actual result

      file does not attach to email
