      Notification of New Record

      Post

      I would like to be notified when a new record is created. In FM Pro I use the send email script without dialog. But this feature is not supported in FM Go.  Is there work around for this?

          As an update to this, I did try using smtp with gmail settings, but that did not work. :(

            Thank you for your post.

            On the host machine, create a script that checks for a blank value in a field.  When the field is blank, send an email, and replace the field with a non-blank value.  Next, execute a script with an "Install OnTimer Script" script step that executes the script every "x" minutes.  When a client (FileMaker Go) creates a new record, the field value will be blank.  At the next instance of the "Install OnTimer Script" executes, it will then see the blank value and send an email.

            Let me know if you need additional clarification.
