Hi guys;


I am new to Filemaker.

And I am looking to have an intermediate step when I create a new customer record.

I mean like a small window that would open with  very few  information Fields about the customer but that should absolutely be entered.

For example Name, Family name and Date Of Birth.


Once this small window data completed I would like to click OK to validate and commit this record.

And than can go on a bigger layout of the customer with more Fields I could enter, but are not obligatory (phone number, email, )

But if I click cancel I would like to Record creation to cancel.


I already have my big Layout for the customer with all the Fields so I am just looking for this intermediate step on Record Creation.


Do you have any idea how this would have to be set up ?
