Temporary File on Go 16

Question asked by BruceHerbach on Apr 11, 2018

In FileMaker Gp ( iPad 16.0.3 ) I have a script that creates a PDF file and lets the user view it.  If the user wants to keep the report a button is pushed and the report is put into a new record/Container field.  If not the display window is closed.

 

The script saves the initial file to temporarypath/Filename.   On the iPad that runs the script these files seem to be accumulating on FileMaker under the "Device" section.

 

Is there away to delete these if the user does not want them added to the database?  I can manually click on each one and delete them from the iPad.  In Pro they are automatically deleted when the system is shut down/started up.  This doesn't work on the iPad and of course it is very seldom that an iPad is actually shut off.

 

Suggestions are greatly appreciated
