Dear FileMaker Friends.
We have created a hosted POS (Point of Sale) solution running on the FileMaker platform. No problems on Mac or Windows (so far).
But, on iOS - ONE BIG ISSUE – PRINT !
Has any of you found or built an easy and reliable solution for printing receipts with variable length from FileMaker Go ?
(Our goals are. Easy setup, and minimal user-clicks to get the print.)
To me this is an obvious market for the FileMaker platform.
Until now we have tried:
Zebra imz320 printers together with MobiPrint
Using the solution described here: http://www.colibrisolutions.com/2014/08/26/mobile-printing-with-filemaker-go-13-and-mobi-print-–-demo/
It works, but it is a bit slow and a lot of things can go wrong with all the settings you have to make. And I do not like the fact, that the user leaves FileMaker during the print process.
Brother RJ-3150, which is an Airprint compatible receipt printer. But until now we haven’t succeeded in getting the PageSetup to work correctly.
