How to roll out a new version of my solution without affecting current records.

Your post

Hey All,

I am new to Filemaker Server, so hopefully this will be an easy question for everyone.

I have gotten a solution up an running on a server for my company this last week, and for the most part everything about that process has gone quite well. But now that we are actively using our solution to run the business I am having trouble figuring out how to go about making updates to my solution.

I obviously don't want to work on the hosted file directly, for fear of breaking something important while I'm messing with things. But if I make a copy of the hosted file and work on that I run into the issue of losing records when I switch to the new solution, since the copy I pulled is now potentially a week or more old and the records are no longer up to date. 

Is there an easy way to get around this issue?

Let me know if you need me to explain better. I feel like I just typed a mess of words. 

Thanks
