I have used the Shopkeeper template in our business for years and the developer no longer supports it. This has left me wondering what to do next as this template is key to our daily activities.
It works great for now, we seldom need support unless we need a new feature or we are forced to update our computers, operating system, or Filemaker itself.
As I see it I have three choices at this point, find a new POS system, find a new developer to support Shopkeeper, or learn Filemaker myself and be my own support or even develop a new database from the ground up.
I do have the code to unlock the existing template so I can get in and make changes or see how it was written as a guide to develop my own template.
I have time this winter to attempt to learn the intricacies of Filemaker and be my own support staff which is appealing so I don't wind up in this situation again.
What say the community?
What is the best way to learn Filemaker?
Thank you for your time and consideration.
