Managing a Parent database with many child databases

Question asked by davidhoch on Feb 1, 2016

I'm creating a database to monitor all of my other databases on my Mac.  I want to keep track of each database on my Mac that has copies running in Filemaker Go on one or more of my iOS devices.   So that I don't have to check each master database invidually, I want this monitoring database to show me the name of each "checked out" copy, when it was checked out, and when the master database on the Mac was last updated with new or updated records from the checked out copies.

I looked at using the portal field to accomplish this, but it appears to be designed to provide a view of many records in a single child database rather than view of a single record from each of many databases.  Does anybody have a suggestions on how I would accomplish this?
