Is a “modify trigger” available for FileMaker, where fields could be updated when any record was modified in that table?
I am using FileMaker Server 17.
LOL. I always said, we've had 'triggers' for a while now. Auto-Enter by calculation and lookup (any Auto-Enter). Defiinately 'triggered'. Oh, and validations, triggers alerts, of course.
In FileMaker, triggers are on Layout Objects, not on Data objects (fields/records). If the trigger is on a specific Layout, it would be easy to have a trigger on a modified field or on record commit. But if you need it from many Layouts, you can’t trigger from one place.
To some extent, that's what auto-enter calcs are on fields. The calculation can be made such that if the record is updated, the field is recalculated.
FM has had these 'triggers' long before the actual script triggers.
