I have a client who needs to log all modifications to each record. Any ideas?
I just watched a webinar today from FMAcademy of a pretty easy to use logging system. I don't when or if the recording will be available but the demo DB is located here Downloads – App.Works
There are a number of third party tools out there. You might research them by web searching for "Logging" or "Audit Trail" with "FileMaker" included in the search text.
NightWing Enterprises - UltraLog v2.x Audit Logging Demo for FileMaker Pro
Big tick to the NightWing UltraLog. It is very easy to set up and totally native FM.
Rightwing would be the usual response
360Works also had a webinar Add Simple Logging to your FileMaker Application ( at 4am this morning my time, 'surprisingly' I missed it )
Perhaps check their site
Best as I can recall, UltraLog does not show modifications made during imports, but if all your modifications are made directly from the keyboard it works as advertised.
Not entirely correct. If you allow auto-enter options to fire during imports, UltraLog will pick those up (as it is based on auto-enter calculations).
If you import without auto-enter, then it won’t grab the data.
Actually UltraLog does record changes on import but only if you select "Perform auto-enter options while importing" during the import process. Been using it for years on our enterprise finance billing engine and it has never let us down (Thanks Ray).
