What is Troi Activator Plug-in?


Troi Activator Plug-in is a very powerful tool for triggering scripts remotely. All from within FileMaker you can:


- trigger a FileMaker script on a different computer (remotely)

- trigger a FileMaker script over internet

- use the built-in security to prevent unauthorized triggering

- send a number (e.g. a record ID) and a long text with the trigger

- start and stop listening for remote trigger messages with one script step

- communicate with databases in different FileMaker versions or even runtimes


Except from remote triggering you can also use the Activator Plug-in for:


- triggering a script on a specified date and time

- scheduling events which trigger any script you want

- running a script from any FileMaker calculation, for example a tooltip calculation

- validating fields on exiting a record with a custom script suited to your specific needs
