Could someone be so kind to help me write a script to alert me when a new record is created. I want the alert to pop up in a button.
Thank you so much.
Are you the only one who need to see the pop up ??
I'm wondering what will you do if users make 30 new records, you will be smashed with amout of popups : )
Maybe is it better to make a layout on which you will see when new reocrd have been made with the status "new" (and for examle change the status to "checked" and you will always see only with "new".... there is a lot of different solutions.... I don't know what exactly you need.
As normal, you can make a script in button like:
New Record request
commit record dialof; OFF
Show custom dialog - here you can type your message
Now when user will make a record he will see dialog box. But only the user.
Please give more details of what you need.
For example: are you the only one who need to see popup or information about new record have been made and what about when you won't be logged, how you want to know about records that have been created.
Thank you for the reply, Im using the Invoice starter template from FM17. we are only 3 users we want that, if one of us make a new record we want everybody notified.
It seems to much complicated for me : ) sorry.Normally you can send message from Admin console.
I think you will need to get a list of clients current conntected to the database, I don't know how to get that.
I google for some solutions:
- Instant Messaging In FileMaker - Instant Messaging In FileMaker – No Plugins or Internet Access Required – FileMaker Inspirations
- Script to Send Alert to specific User if Logged into FileMaker - Scripts - Scripting - The ORIGINAL FileMaker Community …
here are some clarifationt by davidhead, old post by point is the same as I posted above - what if user won't be logged ?- Can I send a message that pops up on another users screen? Here is something, which maybe will help you.
That's all I can do for you, Maybe someone else can help.
I think the suggestion(s) of mark-it could work depending on what you want.
Some other things you could try:
- when a new invoice is created, you could send a mail to everybody. I myself wouldn't like that, but it could solve your problem
- you could create a notifications table, where you create for every new invoice a record for each user. When a user logs in, they get an overview of all (new) notifications (and where they can dismiss them). I once created an application where you had the same popover on all layouts with a portal of notifications and a small number showing the amount of new notifications.
Hope this helps in your search!
