Format changes on live database.
I have a user who is insisting that he should be able to make changes to the layout and formatting of a database after it has gone live. He hasn't given me the specifics of what he is changing or whether db fields will change or not, but I am assuming the worst.
In any other live/test environment we always use a test environment before implementing changes to the live open db environment. Does this mentality change in regards to FM server db's?
Thanks in advance for reading.
Thanks for posting.
FileMaker highly recommends that layout changes and formatting be made offline. While the changes can be made, the safest practice (less possibility for damage/corruption) is offline.
