I have a user with an older iPad and Filemaker Go 17 won't work on it, but Filemaker Go 16 will work on it. Can I develop in Filemaker Pro Advanced 17 on my Mac and will the database still work on the older iPad in Filemaker Go 16?
Yes, under File > File Options you need to specify 16 as the minimum version that can open the file.
Also, you will need to be careful not to use any features of 17 that did not exist in 16, like the found-set-portal. These objects will display as an empty space or placeholder if opened by v16 clients.
