How do i send email of record
I want to be able to send an email of the contents of a record but i cant figure out how to do it can someone help out
Thanks for posting.
FileMaker Go does not have a Send email function that can be accessed in a menu; Send email must be configured on the FileMaker Pro database side. That is, open a database in FileMaker Pro, create a Send email script or button, access the database via FileMaker Go, and then run the script or click on the button in FileMaker Go.
Hope this helps. I am reading your post as looking for Send email functionality in FileMaker Go as opposed to help in writing a script to perform the task. If this isn't the case let me know.
Thanks, tsturtle FileMaker, Inc.
Thank you for your post.
Currently, FileMaker Go does not have the ability to export the record as a PDF file and then attach it to an email. However, you can specify fields in a Send Mail script, so although you can't email the record in its current form (layout), you can specify fields in the Title and/or Body of the email message.
Sorry I wanted to reply and pressed the wrong button.
What I want to do is create a script that will send the data that is in the record but I dont know how to do it, can you direct me in the right direction on how to setup a script. or code.
I try using the code below in the section that says specify calculation but it just gives me a number.
Customers::Name + Customers::Address + Customers::Phone
Thanks for the clarification.
The "+" sign is used for addition. To put text strings (and fields) together, use the ampersand (&). For example:
Customers::Name & Customers::Address & Customers::Phone
However, this just runs the string together. You can enhance this to place a space between each field with the following formula:
Customers::Name & " " & Customers::Address & " " & Customers::Phone
To go one step further, you may want to put each field on its own separate line. That formula would be:
Customers::Name & ¶ & Customers::Address & ¶ & Customers::Phone
If you want a combination of text strings and fields, you can modify it further to:
"Name: " & Customers::Name & ¶ & "Address: " & Customers::Address & ¶ & "Phone: " & Customers::Phone
This should give you a good starting point. Please let me know if you need clarification for any of the above steps.
Thanks so much, this is exactly what I was looking for I will try this code out.
