Updating a live file
I have just uploaded my database file to filemaker server 13 and this is my first filemaker application that I have developed.
I am now trying to understand how to make changes (updates, new functionality, etc.) to my "live" file. Is there a way to work on a copy of the database file to continue development and then just upload the scripts and layouts? Are there "best practices" for continuing development of a solution?
It seems as if I have to work on the "live" database or bring it down (kick all the users off) and then do my development. This is not very efficient if I need to make major changes that take weeks to develop. I am sure I am missing something here.
Thanks in advance for any help!
